Cats Protection Three Aims Are...

 • Finding good homes for cats in need.

 • Supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats. You can qualify for neutering support if you are on a means-tested benefit.  We provide £30 voucher for males and £42 for females with a one-off payment of £10 donation. For more information on NEUTERING VOUCHERS please contact Amanda at neutering@colchester.cats.org.uk.

 • Improving people's understanding of cats and their care through education and advice.
 • Cats Protection provides a wide range of leaflets giving valuable information on cat care, health and other problems.

The branch is totally self-funding, all of the money raised locally is spent on cats in the Colchester area. We hold as many fund-raising events as we can where we sell donated items and Cat Protection merchandise.
If you require more information on our neutering vouchers or any other matters please contact us on the Helpline number 0345 260 1079 or by using the Contact Us form.

We are all volunteers working from our own homes so please be patient if you have to leave a message.

Gifts in Wills

By leaving a gift in your will you can help change the lives of thousands of cats and kittens for years to come.

Without the kindness of people who remember Cats Protection in their wills we would not be the charity we are today; these special gifts fund more than half of everything we do. How to leave a gift in your will.

Cat Guardians
is the free service provided by Cats Protection, aimed at giving peace of mind to cat owners concerned about what might happen if they were to pass away before their cat.

Our Promise.If you have cats, we know how much they mean to you. Should something happen to you, you will naturally want to make sure that someone is there to care for the cat or cats you love. Through our Cat Guardians service, individuals can make arrangements with us so that in the event of their death, we will take care of their cats and try to find them a loving new home. Furthermore, Cats Protection promises never to put a healthy cat to sleep, so you can feel assured that we will give your feline friend all the love and care they need until we can find them the new home they deserve.
