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.

Graham at home11-Aug-2015
Just look at Graham who has been transformed from a tatty and battered tom cat who came into CP care in June 2015 having been a stray for at least six months. He knew how to stand his ground and certainly let the vets know he was no pushover when he was taken in for neutering. Graham also needed dental surgery and faced a number of problems not least of which is that as a FIV+ cat it's harder for ...
