What we do

Cats Protection is governed by a Board of Trustees which, in turn, is advised on its decisions by a Council of appointed representatives of the charity’s membership.
Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

It’s an ambitious vision. However, we truly believe it can be achieved because of our passion, our professional approach and simply because cats are among the UK’s most popular companion pets.

Cats Protection has simple and clear objectives to help cats: 

Homing - Finding good homes for cats in need.   

We aim to make the adoption process as simple and straight forward as possible as although the centre has been designed to give our cats as much comfort as possible during their stay with us, nothing compares to a warm loving home.
