WELCOME TO CATS PROTECTION HORSHAM AND DISTRICT
Cats Protection has been helping cats for more than 90 years. It is the largest feline charity in the UK, aiding over 140,000 cats and kittens every year, and is made up of approximately 265 self-funding voluntary groups across the country. The Horsham and District branch is one of these.
The Horsham and District Cats Protection branch was founded in 2000 and is entirely volunteer-run. We cover the postcodes RH12, RH13 and RH14, which span from Rusper down to Partridge Green and across to Kirdford encompassing Horsham, Billingshurst and Southwater.Please visit our charity shop in Fitzalan Road, Roffey, RH13 6AA! The shop's trading hours are Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm and most Sundays from 10am to 4pm.
Donations are very welcome and make a real difference as proceeds from sales go towards helping the cats in our care with food, veterinary bills, shelter, and more. Items should be in good condition and full working order. Books, CDs, DVDs, bric-a-brac, jewellery, clothing, small items of furniture, children's toys, books, puzzles and games are all much appreciated. We also accept electrical items (which we PAT test before resale). Unfortunately, we cannot accept home-recorded DVDs, videos, audio tapes, computers or PC hardware, electric blankets, electric showers, sunbeds or tanning equipment, waste disposal units, white goods (fridges, dishwashers, etc.) or children's seats, prams, cots or buggies.
We also stock new cat-related equipment such as bowls, keyrings, shopping bags, pin badges, stationery, greeting and birthday cards, seasonal items, a range of Simon's Cat gifts, knitting wools and much, much more!
Donations of cat food and litter are also much appreciated.
So please pop along and visit when you can - you won't be disappointed! Are you receivng a means-tested benefit, on a low income, a pensioner or a full-time student?
If you fall into one of the above categories and live in the RH12, RH13 or RH14 postcode areas, we can help you neuter your cat for only £10 - click here for more information.

Every penny we raise goes directly to the cats in our care, paying for the upkeep of our rescue pens as well as vet bills, which can be very expensive. Each cat we rescue or have given to us is taken to the vet for a health check, blood test, inoculations, microchipping and neutering where necessary, which costs us an average £150 per cat. All cats, including ferals, are also treated for fleas, ear mites and worms. We do receive donations from people who hand in their cats in to be rehomed but this only goes so far, and so we rely on the kindness of our fellow cat lovers to fund our charity.
