What we do

Cats Protection is a national charitable organisation founded in 1927. It is Britain's oldest charity solely for the welfare of cats.

Coventry branch was founded in 1954 by six local volunteers. The branch cares for between 20 and 45 cats and kittens at any one time until they can be placed in new homes. All these cats and kittens are looked after by foster parents, who are all volunteers. We currently have around 200 members.

Our work at Cats Protection has four main objectives:

1. To rescue stray and unwanted cats and kittens, rehabilitate and rehome them.

2. To encourage the neutering of cats and kittens.

3. To inform the public on the care of cats and kittens.

4. Help you keep your cat with you wherever possible

See our main Cats Protection site for more information



This branch helps hundreds of needy cats, including finding new homes for 250 to 350 cats and kittens every year.

We also run a neutering campaign to help owners who cannot afford the cost of the operation. Every year we help sponsor the neutering of 900 to 1000 cats in and around Coventry.


If you would like more information on our financially assisted neutering programme, simply get in touch at the e-mail address or telephone number below. Our telephone line is staffed entirely by busy volunteers so if you reach our answering machine, please be prepared to leave a message giving your name and a telephone number where we can call you back.
