'A world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs' - the Cats Protection vision
Cats Protection has simple and clear objectives to help cats:
Finding good homes for cats in need
- Supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats
- Improving people’s understanding of cats and their care
West Lothian branch has been run since the millenium by unpaid voluteers, whose spare time is spent assisting cats and kittens in need in the West Lothian and West Edinburgh areas. We cover EH11,12,14,27,28,29,30,47,48,49,52,53,54 and 55 (a map of this area and other useful local organisations is available here).
There are always many more cats in need than we can help so we are unable to rescue cats from outside our area. We are happy to rehome cats further away (including all of Edinburgh) within a reasonable distance.
There is no adoption centre - cats and kittens in our care are housed with volunteer fosterers. All foster spaces are constantly occupied and we operate a waiting list based on waiting time and urgency. It is, therefore, unlikely that we will be able to rescue a cat at short notice, except in exceptional circumstances.
We aid as many cats as we can but to help more:
Our Cats Need Forever Homes
- you are not just adopting one cat, but also helping the line of cats waiting to use their foster place.We Need Fosterers
- the more spaces we have, the more felines we can foster (and it costs you nothing but a little time and tlc).We Need Funding
- we can only continue through our own fundraising (supplemented by a discretionary grant from Cats Protection HQ).
