Canterbury & District  branch was set up in 2004 and has always been entirely volunteer-based and is supported by fund-raising activities, donations from the public and those with whom we rehome our cats and kittens.

Covid 19 / Corona Virus Update - Updated 26/03/2020

We at Canterbury Cats Protection hope that you are well and managing in the current climate. We have taken advice from Cats Protection Headquarters and please be aware as of today 18 March 2020:

1. All adoptions and admission will stop until further notice. So sorry we will be unable to home any cats now in our care or accept any new cats into our care for rehoming.

2. The cats we have in care are happy with their fosterers in the meantime and we thank them for being able to continue to care for them. 

3. The Pets at home weekend due to run at the end of March has been cancelled.

4. Due to vets only undertaking emergency work we are currently unable to offer neutering vouchers. We will resume this work as soon as we are able to.

5. Lost and Found can also continue however we will NOT be able to scan or trap cats.  For more go to:

We fully understand that this limits the service we will be able to provide and understand that some of you will be disappointed, but the current situation leaves us with no other choice. Please stay safe and we will try to resume normal service as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

Please note we do not have a central adoption centre to go and view our cats.  If you want to adopt one of our cats go to our adoption pages.
