Cats Protection operates through a network of around 250 volunteer led branches throughout the United Kingdom. In addition to the branch network they have 36 purpose built cat adoption centres. Branches and adoption centres work side by side to deliver great work. They never put a healthy cat to sleep. Their vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs. The charity understands it is an ambitious vision. However, they truly believe it can be achieved because of their passion, professional approach and simply because cats are among the UK’s most popular companion pets.

The charity has simple and clear objectives to help cats:

Homing - Finding good homes for cats in need

Neutering - Supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats

Education and Information - Improving people’s understanding of cats and their care

How can donations impact the charity

£10 will feed a cat in the charity’s care for over a month

£20 will treat a kitten with conjunctivitis

£35 vaccinates a cat against diseases like flu and enteritis

Your donations really do make a difference and allow Cats Protection to carry on their work to ensure a bright future for all the cats and kittens in their care.

Since its birth in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity. They now help around 200,000 cats and kittens every year through their network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, and 36 adoption centres. They have over 5,000 cats in their care at any time and in 2014 rehomed and reunited over 48,000 cats – on average 100 per day.

The average life expectancy for a cat is 12 to 14 years though many cats survive to their late teens and early 20s in remarkably good health, depending on how well they are looked after. The charity tries to maximise this and this is why they still need your support!

The charity understands that it is difficult to lose a cat, so they have designed a support line consisting of volunteers to provide emotional support. This line is completely confidential and can be reached on 0800 024 94 94.
