OVERVIEW


Cats Protection is the world’s largest feline welfare charity with over 250 volunteer branches and 29 adoption centres across the country, plus the Sussex-based National Cat Centre.


AIMS

Cats Protection has 3 main aims.

  • To encourage neutering of all cats and kittens and kittens. In the case of feral cats/kittens they would be neutered and returned to where they were originally found or alternatively relocated to an appropriate rural area such as a farm or stables.

  • To rescue and re-home cats and kittens of all ages. Cats and kittens are rescued and re-homed for many different reasons. They may be: unwanted due to personal allergies or as a result of the owner moving home/abroad; without homes due to the hospitalisation or the death of their owner; found lost or straying; or simply abandoned.

  • To inform the public on cat care. This includes answering any questions they may have which is also an important part of our work. Cat care leaflets can be obtained from the Essential Guides section on the main Cats Protection website.

BOARDING POLICY

Cats Protection does not provide a cattery or boarding service for owned cats as such establishments must be licensed. Whilst Cats Protection does not recommend individual establishments, if a member of the public enquires about this, they may be given a list of local Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) approved boarding facilities. For details please see the FAB website.
