Welcome to Cats Protection Derby & District Branch

We’re here to support cats and kittens in Derby & District, covering postcodes: DE1, DE21, DE22, DE23, DE24, DE3, DE4, DE5, DE55, DE56, DE6, DE65, DE7, DE72, DE73, DE74, DE75 and NG10.

Run by a small team of dedicated cat-loving volunteers, our team offers support with the following - neutering, welfare assistance, support for community cats and feral colonies (including trap, neuter and return), advertising lost and found cats, as well as general education and awareness within the Derby area. 

We operate the Catline, a 7 day a week helpline you can call for help and advice on 01332206956. The Catline is checked remotely from 9am-6pm daily and if you leave a voicemail message someone will get back to you.

Cat adoption in Derby & District

This branch does not directly rehome pet cats. If you want to adopt or rehome a cat, you can find cats in need of loving new homes at Derby Adoption Centre.

However, we are always in need of suitable environments for the many feral cats and kittens that, for whatever reason, find themselves without somewhere to call home. Most feral cats prefer the freedom of a working life to a comfortable lap in suburbia and we have had some very positive feedback in terms of reduced rodent problems from the many farms, stables and warehouses that have adopted a feral or two from us in the past. These mousers can provide a very efficient and environmentally-friendly alternative to chemical pest control. Garden centres, golf clubs, smallholdings, farms, stables, shops; in fact, anywhere where there is room to roam and rodents to catch, will be these cats’ idea of heaven and will provide working cats with a suitable environment in which to live and work and do what they do best!

If you can provide a home for two or more of these cats, please contact the Branch Catline on 01332 206 956 or email us at
