Since 2006 the local branch of Cats Protection has been working hard to help needy cats and kittens in the Lancaster, Morecambe and South Cumbria areas.
Cats for rehoming are placed with our dedicated fosterers, who may have one or two cat pens (similar to those in a boarding cattery) or a dedicated room inside their home where a cat can be looked after until a suitable new home is found. We work closely with Bay Vets to ensure that all the cats and kittens in our care have a thorough veterinary check, are vaccinated, microchipped and, if old enough, neutered. Insurance for the first 4 weeks of ownership is provided via Petplan Insurance.
Everyone connected with the local branch is a volunteer - they give their time freely in order that we can help more cats. We rely on donations, adoption fees and income from our charity shop and fundraising events to help us pay for everything involved in helping needy cats and kittens in this area.
