Gosport Cats Protection
We started 2015 with a litter of seven young tabby kittens in care and a waiting list of cats needing to come into care as long as last year. Of course we're here to help stray cats too. We do our very best to help where we can but are always reliant on there being space available with our dedicated volunteer fosterers and good homes being found for those cats in care.
We encourage owners to have their cats neutered and microchipped, you're doing your pet a big favour by doing this. Cats Protection can go some way to helping with the cost of neutering your cat as financial help is available with this cost. Vouchers are available to people who live in the PO12 - PO14 areas and receive a ‘low income benefit’. They are £25 for male cats, and £40 for female
cats. Do contact us on 02392 582601 for vouchers.
As soon as one cat is happily rehomed there's always another feline
needing to come into care. However we remain positive and continue to work
together for the welfare of all cats as Gosport branch has done over the last
Thank you for your continued
support of Gosport Cats Protection in 2015.

Stanley's story 07-Jul-2015
Gosport Cats Protection became aware of Stanley through Pat, a very kind lady in Bridgemary who’d noticed a tatty and weary tabby cat hobbling beside her cat. The two cats seemed to like each other and Stanley seemed to have an ulterior motive in forming the attachment as this poor soul was hoping for some food. The tactic worked and Pat kept an eye on him ensuring he had plenty to ...

A brilliant £452.59 was raised from the market stall at Gosport on 27/06/15 so it was sunny all round on the day. As always puzzles and games were popular buys and we sold out of our selection of cat baskets, (plastic, wicker and canvas). Some beautiful glassware went for very reasonable prices; we are mindful of pricing items so that they sell quickly but it is disappointing then that ...
