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 and/or assistance. 

Our main aim for Bolton and the surrounding areas is the NEUTERING  of cats and kittens as we currently do not have the facilities or any fosterers available to assist us in rehoming, although we are hoping to rectify this by next year in 2018.

We are no longer accepting cats onto the Home to Home Scheme, however, there are a number of Home to Home cats remaining, whom we are still keen to find loving new homes for, in the Adopt a Cat section of the website.  Please do get in touch if you are interested in adopting one of them, thank you.

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.
