What we do

  Formed in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading
  feline welfare charity. 

  Cats Protection now rehomes and reunite 55,500 cats and kittens every
  year, through our network of over 250 voluntary-run branches and 29
  adoption centres. 

The Bracknell and Wokingham Districts Branch is completely staffed by unpaid volunteers, who undertake all
aspects of the branches work in their spare time, fitting it in around their own work and family commitments

The branch was formed in January 1994, when the former Reading & District Branch (itself formed in May 1985)
was divided into two autonomous branches, to better support the large catchment area in the heart of the Thames
Valley, and to respond more effectively to the ever increasing requests for help. Like many other Cats Protection
branches across the country, the Bracknell & Wokingham Districts branch do a wide range of activities to protect
and help cats.
  • Our first and foremost frequent task is taking in unwanted cats or kittens, from owners who can no
    longer care for them.
  • We take in strays and attempt to reunite them with their original owners, if they cannot be traced they
    are re-homed.
  • We operate a lost and found register.
  • We take in feral and semi feral cats to be neutered and returned to their site or rehomed at stables, farms,
    small holdings etc, where they make extremely good rodent controllers.  Feral kittens that are young enough
    (less than 6 weeks) to be socialised will eventually go to regular domestic homes.
  • Any cats we take in, which require medical treatment, are treated by our vet at our expense, this is so
    that all  cats in our care are fit and healthy when they are re-homed.
  • We provide assistance with the cost of neutering and micro-chipping for those on low income or in receipt
    of benefits. To obtain a voucher please email neutering@bracknell.cats.org.uk or phone us on 03453 714212.
    Lines are open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm only.
  • We encourage the neutering and micro-chipping of all cats and kittens and provide an information service
    to the public. Our branch covers Bracknell, Wokingham and surrounding districts.  This area includes towns
    such as Crowthorne, Woodley and Winnersh. We help rehome unwanted cats and kittens, provide financial
    aid to low income families for veterinary care such as neutering and provide information and advice
    on general cat care. 
We invite you to read more about the cats we have in our care who are looking for a home, how we try to help
and details on our fundraising events which we hope you will find enjoyable and informative.
