Cats Protection has partnered with Carpetright since April 2022 and is committed to providing carpet samples to centres across the UK. These carpet patches help our cats display natural behaviours and support their transition into their new forever homes; carpet can help cats to maintain their claws, mark territory and get them used to new surfaces. The samples are even great as stress relievers, and providing a cosy surface for the cats.
Carpetright have donated hundreds of carpet samples to Cats Protection centres across the UK and have raised awareness of the welfare charity across their social media and email communications.
Cats Protection has worked with our corporate partner Ceva, manufacturers of the leading pheromone range FELIWAY® for over 10 years and we are so excited to begin a new partnership agreement for the next three years.
Ceva explains: “The incredible bond between people and cats can be a profound one. When Ceva had the opportunity to partner with Cats Protection we felt it was a perfect continued collaboration for us through our FELIWAY® range. We are thrilled to be working alongside the UK’s leading cat charity and excited to work with the incredible teams at Cats Protection again by developing our partnership over the next three years."
Ceva will donate 10p to Cats Protection for every UK sale of a FELIWAY® Classic or FELIWAY® Optimum Diffuser over the next three years, raising at least £45,000 to support cats and kittens in our care.
Petplan and Cats Protection have been in partnership for over 20 years and together, with our supporters and the adoption team, we have raised over £9.5 million for our branches and centres. It’s an impressive accomplishment and a testament to the great partnership between our charity and Petplan.
All cats that we rehome as pets can come with four weeks’ free insurance from Petplan.
The funds raised have helped thousands of cats within our care and Petplan’s four weeks’ free insurance ensure they continue to have access to the best possible care when going to their forever homes.
In 2006 Pets at Home founded its own charity, Support Adoption For Pets (now rebranded to The Pets at Home Foundation), and both are big supporters of Cats Protection.
The charity offers grant funding and through their Charity of the Year initiative our branches and centres are able to hold fundraising and awareness events with their partnered stores. Pets at Home also donate stock supplies and hold annual fundraising weekends for Cats Protection across all stores. Together with the proceeds from the nine annual fundraising weekends we have now raised more than £360,000! Pets at Home have also supported us by providing the space for two homing & information centres in their Newbury and Cardiff Newport Road stores.
We are supported through Pets at Home’s VIP (Very Important Pets) Club which has to date raised a total of just over £1.3 million for us in Pets at Home vouchers to spend on whatever the cats in our care need. Find out how to sign up and support us through VIP.
PURINA® has partnered with Cats Protection for more than 30 years and supports a variety of our initiatives and campaigns. In 2018 we launched a joint campaign called ‘The Unadoptable Stories’ for four weeks. Through the mass reach, multi-platform campaign, together we were able to highlight that no matter whether they have medical conditions, are a little older, or just a bit shy, every cat deserves to find their perfect match, as we believe no cat is unadoptable. The campaign was a great success and generated significant awareness for Cats Protection, PURINA® and our partnership. PURINA® also generously made a donation to fund the running costs of our National Cat Adoption Centre for the month of November.
Our thanks also go to them for being the official sponsor of the National Cat Awards for the eighth time. As part of its sponsorship support, PURINA® encouraged entries among its consumers and through its pet-loving online community, increasing awareness of the awards and extending their reach. PURINA® also provides subsidised food for cats in our care.
