Welcome to Cats Protection Waltham Forest
Our branch is run entirely by a small team volunteers and operates within the following postcodes: E4, E10, E11, E17, E18 and IG8. Within this area we help support the charity with their key objectives:
Adoptions - to find good homes for cats and kittens in need
Neutering - to support and encourage the neutering of cats and kittens
Informing - to improve people's understanding of cats and their care through education and advice.
We also help with feral cats in the neighbourhood by neutering them. If you want to find out more, view our page; What is TNR?
Run entirely by volunteers, the branch relies on the support of the community and donations of food and litter to help us to look after and rehome the cats in our care.
As a charity, we rely solely on the generosity of lovely people like you. As well as adopting a cat from us, there are so many ways to support us and help us raise money; no matter how big or small, any amount of money donated will make a real difference.
Visit our support us page on how you can get involved.

PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS IS OFTEN THE CASE WITH CAT 'RESCUE' CHARITIES OUR RESOURCES ARE LIMITED AND OUR FOSTER PLACES ARE FULL. THEREFORE, WE ARE RARELY ABLE TO CATS IN TO CARE ON SHORT NOTICE AND WE OPERATE A WAITING LIST SO THERE WILL NORMALLY BE SOME LENGTH OF TIME BEFORE WE CAN OFFER A CAT A RESCUE SPACE.
EMERGENCIES - Please note we are NOT staffed or equipped to deal with emergency situations. If you know about an animal that is injured or being treated cruelly, call the RSPCA's national 24 hour cruelty and advice line on 0300 1234 999 or visit https://www.rspca.org.uk/
VETERINARY CARE - Please note that we are NOT able to offer free veterinary care. The PDSA offers veterinary treatment free (subject to available funding) to those on certain benefits. To be eligible, pet owners need to live within the defined postcode catchment area of a PDSA PetAid hospital or PetAid practice and must be receiving finanical help with their housing costs through either housing benefit or council benefit. More information can be obtained from the PDSA website https://www.psda.org/ or call the main number 0800 731 2502 - to discuss what assistance may or may not be available in your area.
