Support us

Thank you for being interested in finding out how you can help support the cats and kittens in our care. There are so many ways you could help - here are just some of the ways:

Sponsor a Cat

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.

Click here to choose the cat and pen you'd like to sponsor, from as little as 19p a day.

We welcome donations of items such as cat food, cat toys, cat carriers, cat beds and knitted blankets. We are not able to accept donations of prescription veterinary drugs. Our donation baskets are located in our reception area for donations such as cat food which we also share with our local Cats Protection branches.

We also collect postage stamps and left over foreign currency, all of which we can redeem or exchange for ££'s for the centre.   If you have coins or stamps you would like to donate, you can send these to us via post or drop in to the centre.  The stamps will need to have a finger width border size around the outside.

Leaving a Legacy in your Will - 'The Promise of a Lifetime'  

We can only keep our promise to cats... if people like you make a promise
Many supporters make the wonderful decision to remember Cats Protection and Ferndown Homing Centre in their Wills.  Today these special gifts fund almost 60 percent of our vital work, enabling us (Cats Protection) to care for over 200,000 cats a year.  In years to come, if more supporters continue to include Cats Protection in their Wills, then we will be able to change even more cats' lives.
