We are a small branch of volunteers who work from home and try to help as much as we can with cats in need or owners who need guidance or assistance.

If we are not in a position to help you, we will signpost you to other organisations whose aims are more suited to your situation.

Our main aims for Bolton, Radcliffe and Bury are


  • the NEUTERING  of cats and kittens as we believe this will help reduce the number of unwanted and stray cats as well as having many health benefits for male and female cats. Please check out the details of our neutering campaign!

  • the REHOMING of cats. We have limited fostering facilities but we are working with our adoption centres in Warrington and St. Helens to rehome cats that need this. We are always looking for the best outcome for cats. Sometimes rehoming is not appropriate. We will assess each situation and offer advice. Cats we offer for adoption will have had a full veterinary package ensuring peace of mind and good value.

  • to EDUCATE people on the needs of cats and how to care for them through giving education talks and offering advice.

Cats Protection has been making a positive difference to cats lives since 1927, building up a wealth of knowledge about feline welfare.  We now have over 250 volunteer run branches and 30 adoption/homing centres and continue to grow to meet the increasing demands placed upon us.

Cats Protection helps around 200,000 cats and kittens each year which is over 500 cats and kittens every day on average.  This is a huge number and while we are rightly proud of our achievements, we know more cats need our help.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Please bear in mind that we operate a lead time of two weeks to issue and deliver neutering vouchers. Please allow this time before making an appointment for neutering at the vet. Your vet will not be able to proceed with neutering at a subsidised cost without the voucher being at the surgery.

We can cover the following postcode areas: BL1, BL2, BL3, BL4 , BL5, BL6, BL7, BL8, BL9, M26, M45.
Some areas are not really covered by any branch so do feel free to contact us if you live in one of these to see if we can help.

Please note that we do not offer a veterinary service.

If you are concerned about the welfare of a cat, please contact the RSPCA national helpline: 0300 1234 999.
If you need help to provide veterinary care for your own cat, please contact the PDSA on 0800 731 2502 or the RSPCA.
