What we do
Our primary aim is to bring into our care stray, unwanted, injured and neglected cats that need our help.
This is all carried out by our small but dedicated team of volunteers who foster the cats in their own homes.
We also try to tackle feral colonies, trap, neuter and return to site.
It may be that the cats are only with us a few weeks but quite often, particularly if they are injured or ill, they stay with us for longer periods of time until they are fit and well.
Before being homed, all Cats Protection cats are micro-chipped, vaccinated and neutered and come with one month's complimentary insurance.
Whilst with us, we need to provide for our cats food and litter and to pay their vets fees, which are currently running between £1500 and £2000 per month. To this end we hold regular fund raising events to raise funds to cover these every day costs.
In 2016 we helped find new homes for around 100 cats and kittens that passed through our care.
Whilst this is good, with your help we can always do more!
