Support us

All our helpers and fosterers, home visitors, fundraisers, our treasurer and secretary are ALL VOLUNTEERS, no-one is paid. It is genuine love for animals that makes us become volunteers for Cats Protection. We are very, very fortunate to have a wonderful team of people who are what we call 'plodders'. Some team members have been together for 23 years, which is amazing and are very valuable members of our branch.
