Become a cat sponsor
So many cats arrive at our branch hungry, homeless and alone. 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 to sponsor here: Become a cat sponsor
Gateshead & Newcastle 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 first photo introducing you to the lovely cat you are helping to care for in your pen, a photo album to collect pictures of all the cats you help 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 photos, videos, stories and sponsorship news. You can even access the sponsor area on our website where you can find more information on the cats you are helping, including videos and photos of your current sponsor cat. Thank you.

We have set up an Amazon Wish List for anyone who would like to support us by buying a gift for the cats and kittens in our care. Items requested include: cat food, cat toys and cat litter.
You can purchase gifts by clicking on this link: Gateshead & Newcastle Branch Amazon Wish List
Items will be delivered directly to the branch.
Giveacar is the UK’s first charity car donation service. They aim to give you a simple, efficient and friendly way to turn an old banger into a good deed for charity. Cats Protection has been partnered with Giveacar from the beginning of the year and is impressed with their professionalism and excellent customer service. Cats Protection has already raised a significant amount which will help us to continue our work in rehoming, neutering and education.
