Can you Help us?
As a charity, we rely solely on the generosity and kindness of the public to enable us to go on caring for cats and kittens.
Our work never stops, so your support is vital to us. There are many ways you can show your support, a few are listed below. Thank you.

Thank you for your support!

Sponsor a Cat Pen
Hungry, homeless and alone, every day hundreds of unwanted cats arrive at Cats Protection. Sponsoring one of our cat pens is one of the best ways you can help, providing them with shelter, warmth, food, medical care and the love they need. It's easy to become a sponsor right now, for as little as 19p a day.

Play the weekly lottery

The Cats Protection Weekly Charity Lottery is a great way to show your support for cats and kittens in need. For as little as £1 a week you could pay for nutritious food for a starving cat, with our lottery income covering the cost of rehoming over 10,000 cats and kittens. You could help us vaccinate cats against life-threatening illnesses such as Cat Flu, Enteritis and Leukaemia.

Remembering us in your will

The promise of a lifetime…

It is thanks to the wonderful kindness of people who remember Cats Protection in their wills that we are able to carry out much of our day to day work. These special gifts fund more than half of everything we do and are vital to our work helping abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens.

Above all, we rely on gifts in wills to help us keep the special promise that underpins all of our work: that we will never put a healthy cat to sleep. You could help us keep our special promise and care for even more cats by leaving us a gift in your will.

We are incredibly grateful for every gift we receive, no matter what the size. Even the smallest gifts help us to provide cats with food, a warm bed, veterinary attention and most importantly of all, find them a loving home. With more than half the cats and kittens we help being cared for thanks to gifts in wills, we can only continue our vital work if kind people like you support us in this special way

Would you like to remember the Dereham Adoption Centre?

While many individuals who remember Cats Protection in their will leave their gift to the charity as a whole, we know that supporters involved with our local centres may wish to remember their specific adoption centre, or even leave their gift for the benefit of their local area. Please specify this request when you speak to someone in our team. They will be happy to accomodate this request.

Cat Guardians

If you are a cat owner you will naturally want to make sure that someone is there to look after the cat or cats you love should something happen to you. If this is something that concerns you, you may wish to consider registering with our Cat Guardians service. If you register to this service, and include a clause in your will about these arrangements, then we promise to care for your cat(s) in the event of your death and find them a loving new home.

More information about this service, and how to register, can be found at 

If you are interested in taking part in one of the many fun events Cats Protection have to offer then please check out or events page for more info.
