Sponsor a cat pen

Hungry, homeless and alone, so many cats arrive at our branch.

Sponsoring a cat pen is one of the best ways you can help, providing them with shelter, food, warmth, medical care and the love they need.


It's easy to become a cat pen sponsor, right now, for as little as 19p a day. Sponsorship also makes a lovely gift for a fellow cat lover in your life.


To get started, just choose the cat and the pen you would like click here. Please use this link and Downpatrick branch will receive 100% of your sponsorship.

To start off your journey as a Cats Protection Sponsor, you will receive a fantastic welcome pack, including a personalised certificate, your very first photo' introducing you to the lovely cat you are currently helping to care for in your pen, a photo album to collection pictures of all the cats who go through your pen, and a window sticker!

That's not all, throughout your time as a sponsor we will keep you updated with regular newsletters and photos' of the cat in your pen and will update you by email with photo's, videos, stories and all the sponsorship news. You can even access the sponsor area on our website where you can see more information on the cats you are helping, including videos and wonderful photo's of your current sponsor cat.

How about a sky dive?

Experience the thrill of freefall and reach a speed of around 120 miles per hour, as you exit the aircraft, securely attached to your Instructor, you will experience a thrill like no other.

At 6,000 feet the Tandem Instructor will open the canopy, enabling you take in the wonderful bird’s eye view of the glorious North Irish Coast under a large parachute for a peaceful seven minute ride back to earth.

The Tandem Instructor will guide the canopy back down, but you can be hands on if you wish and help steer the parachute.

We ask you to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £50 + £35 insurance fee and pledge to raise a minimum of £450 for your nominated branch or centre.

We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you  all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
