Welcome to the Chelmsford Cats Protection sponsorship page. 
Our Sponsorship Scheme was launched in November 1971 to find permanent 'Aunts' and 'Uncles' to contribute regularly towards the upkeep of unhomeable residents. In return for a photograph and regular contributions, the first sponsors were allowed to name their chosen cat. Pusskin was elected Chief Spokescat and, with a little help from Christine Peterson, wrote a regular piece for the Newsletter telling sponsors what had been happening at the shelter. 

Unable to have a cat? Want more but your family or other pets don't allow you?

Born 2005.

Honey has previously been homed 4 times but due to her naughty behaviour she is back in our care once again. 

Honey seems to act like a totally different character when in a home environment.

Sponsor Honey to find out more about her antics!
She currently lives at the Adoption Centre so please pop in and see her!
sponsor cat Max

Arrived in our care due to the sad passing of his owner. 

Max is hyperthyroid so therefore will need mediction and regular blood tests for life. 

Max is missing 18 teeth but he is still happy to smile for a photo

Willow was brought into our care & we soon found out that she was allergic to several things. She also has cravings for non food items.

A pretty girl who suffered with bladder stones, this is now controlled with a special veterinary urinary diet and regular urine samples


Thomas O'Malley
This boy loves to talk.
He is FiV positive and has a condition called dry eye.

A big white 'polar bear'. Mikey had been judged for his behaviour before arriving in our care. A series of xrays at the vets showed us that Mikey was in pain from his knees. Mikey has had knee replacement surgery and is now on a mission to lose weight. A bit of weight loss will help those joints and keep him more mobile. 

sponsor cat Chloe

15 year old hyperthyoid female. Hyperthyroidism means you can eat loads and not gain weight. Sounds a dream!

It can be harmful to the body and therefore must be managed carefully

11 year old Charley has been diagnosed with diabetus. She is medicated daily and has regular checks to keep her insulin levels under control.

sponsor cat Stitch Stitch
A longhaired grey girl who has a narrowing to her thoracic vertebrae (section of the spine) this can cause her quite a bit of back pain so she will be on medication for the foreseable future
sponsor cat Pebbles

A fluffy black cat who has a few allergies. 

These seem to be currently well maintained on her special medicine

16 year old Tuppence is a georgous sweet natured older cat who adores people. She is hyperthyroid and takes regular medication, unlike some of our other cats who don't mind taking meds, our Tuppence can be a little naught!

This handsome boy is 15 years old and is hyperthyroid. He requires regular daily medication and 3 monthly blood tests.


 Molly - Tabby
15 years young and a real sweetie. Molly is also hyperthyroid and requires regular daily medication and 3 monthly blood tests.


 Molly - Tortie
16 1/2 year old Molly is hyperthyroid requiring daily medication and blood tests. Another sweet natured older cat. She is such a good girl and will lick her meds of the end of the dropper, what a good girl.

Can't decide which cat to choose? 
How about Carol's Pen? 
Built in the 1990's in memory of a much loved warden, Carol's Pen was previously home to many different types of cats. Some being sick and needing that extra bit of peace and quiet, feral and wanting to be away from the rest, shy and looking for a non stressful stay at Cats Protection, since our pens had a refurb in 2015 Carol's Pen has now been made into a maternity pen which is proven very useful especially during the summer months.

 Your sponsorship will help every cat that passes through this pen. 

 You will receive updates on their progress and photos where possible.



Sponsorship is recommended at £3.50 a month or £42 a year, but in reality whatever you can afford, it all helps. 

Sponsorship can be paid for by:
- Standing Order (please ask for a form)
- Cheque (made Payable to Chelmsford Cats Protection)
- Cash (we do not recommend sending cash through the post)

Your sponsorship money will go towards their care which will include their vet bills whilst they are here at the Adoption Centre and also when they are homed with fosterers.





Please email for more details.
