How you can help


Welcome to 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.

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.
