Northumbria Cats Protection Branch is a newly formed merger of three former branches, East Northumberland, Gateshead & Newcastle and North Tyneside branches.

The new branch covers the following post codes areas:

NE1 - NE13
NE15 - NE17
NE21 - NE30
NE37 -NE46
NE61 - NE65

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 branch is a dedicated and friendly group of people working together to rescue and re-home cats and kittens in the East Northumberland area. Our work never stops, so your support is vital to us. From giving your time as a volunteer, to making a small donation or leaving a gift in your will, anything that you can do is much appreciated.

Out of work mousers looking for rural employment opportunites.
We have the purrfect solution to anyone in need of an enviromentally pest control service, with many feral cats in need of a new home. A pair of feral cats is an efficient, enviromentally friendly method of pest control. If you feel you could offer feral cats employment opportunities please contact us.

Why adopt from Cats Protection?
Prior to homing a cat, we like to do a homecheck. Our adoption fees are £85 adult cat and £105 for a kitten. For this cost, your cat or kitten will:

  • have been health checked by a vet
  • be neutered, or voucher provided if too young
  • be microchipped
  • have had at least their first vaccination
  • have been treated for fleas and worms
  • have been cared for to a very high standard 
  • have been FIV and FeLV tested

If you are interested in homing a cat in our care, please have a look at our adoption pages .


Contact Details:
We are a small group of volunteers covering a large area, so please be patient if contacting us, please leave a message we will get back to you as soon as we can.
