What we do
Cats Protection is the UK's leading cat welfare charity, rehoming and reuniting 55,500 cats and kittens a year through its nationwide network of 29 adoption centres and 253 voluntary-run branches. We also promote responsible cat ownership through education and information and run comprehensive neutering programmes involving approximately 190,000 cats every year. Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.
Cats Protection rescues and rehomes unwanted and abandoned cats, and promotes responsible cat ownership.
The Lancaster & Morecambe Branch was formed in 2006 and is run by a group of volunteers who give their time to help needy cats and kittens in the local area. In 2013 our branch rehomed 213 cats and provided help to owners with arranging the neutering of hundreds more. Our main aims are:
- To improve people's understanding of the needs of cats
- To find good homes for cats and kittens in need
- To support and encourage the neutering of cats
- To trap, neuter and return adult feral cats back onto their home territory in order to control feral populations
- To keep a register of lost and found cats, and to promote microchipping
