Welcome to Oxford and District Cats Protection!
The Oxford and District Cats Protection is one of more than 250 groups
of Cats Protection volunteers in the UK, rescuing, treating, neutering
and rehoming unwanted, abandoned or needy cats and kittens.
Thanks for coming to the Christmas Bazaar in Abingdon, Saturday 6th December
Despite only being open for two hours, we made £652 plus a table full of cat food. Thanks for your support!
We need a Volunteer Team Leader!!!
That was our last event for 2014 - see you next year!
. We have several more volunteer opportunities as well.
In November 2014, Oxford and District branch homed 14 cats and 19 kittens:
November was a very good month and we homed 14 cats and 19 kittens. All
of the 14 kittens of varying ages, that came to us in August , when a
barn was demolished in East Hannay, have been homed. Beautiful Russian
Blue type, Pearl, the mother of 5 of the kittens, also found a home.
Many thanks to Katherine Carroll of East Hannay who took care of them
all when they appeared on her property and contacted us. Miley,
balck-and-white, and Tiger Lily, tabby-and-white, were only in our care
for 10 days before finding their forever home. Rowley, a handsome
long-haired black-and-white gentleman, 12 years old, sadly had to come
back after being homed in June. He went to a loving new home only 8 days
later and 2 days after that we got this email; “Rowley has settled in
really well and made himself at home! He's such an affectionate,
friendly cat, we both love him already.”
: Let's find a home this month for JACK
This brings the totals for 2014 to 73 cats and 98 kittens.
There are still more needy cats that we don't have the capacity to help! We have lots of volunteer opportunities
for people to foster cats to get them into a place of safety, and fundraisers to supply their needs! See our Volunteer page and decide if you can help the cats!
Established in 1988, we work through a network of fosterers, who provide temporary accommodation for needy cats until safe, loving, permanent homes can be found for them. The fosterers are supported by other volunteers who concentrate on fund-raising.
Cats Protection asks adopters for a fee when offering a home to a cat or kitten as they are all vet-checked, micro-chipped and receive their first vaccinations before going to their new homes and, if old enough, are neutered. If you feel able to make a donation on top of that fee, it would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you if you decide to give a loving home to one of our cats
