Welcome to Cats Protection Downpatrick Branch.  We are quite well established now in the local area, rehoming and caring for many unfortunate cats and kittens. Our Facebook page has regular lost and founds from various agencies as well as others looking to rehome cats and kittens not in our care. We think this is vital that the agencies and fosterers work together for the welfare of ALL cats. The cats in our care are advertised on our Facebook page (Cats Protection Downpatrick Branch) and we occasionally have a slot in the Down Recorder too.  

Our small band of wonderful volunteers are regularly seen doing in-store collections, variety sales and holding various activities and events to raise vital funds so that we can continue to foster cats and rehome them and also to fund our important neutering programme.

Every cat we have in care receives neutering/spaying, vaccinations, worming, de flea'd treatment, microchipping, FIV/FELV testing, full veterinary health check (incluing dental) and 4 weeks free pet insurance.

All we ask for is an adoption fee of £50 to cover a little of those costs.  Every re homing will have either a home check or an informal check list applied.

Our neutering programme is NOT means tested but there are a limited number of FREE neutering/spaying vouchers, so it is on a first come, first served basis. Our exclusive Cats Protection Veterinary Practice - Downe Veterinary Clinic, Downpatrick offer means tested vouchers, which usually means that the customer only pays £5 for the service.  There really is no excuse for not neutering your pets, it is one of the kindest things you can do for them.
