Welcome to Cats Protection Ipswich Branch

We’re here to support cats and kittens in Ipswich, covering postcodes: IP1, IP2, IP3, IP4, IP5, IP6, IP7, IP8, IP9, IP10, IP11.

Run by a small team of dedicated, cat-loving volunteers, we’re passionate about improving the lives of cats and kittens in Ipswich. We work hard to find loving new homes for local cats in our care, offer support with neutering, and encourage general feline education and awareness within the Ipswich area. You can find out more about the work of Cats Protection here.

We have our own Cats Protection Ipswich Charity shop at 20, Queen Street (in the town centre) There are lots of fantastic goods for sale including clothes, shoes, boots, hats, books, cat toys and beds, cards, household items and decorative accessories to name a few. The stock is constantly changing so there is always something new and exciting to discover. Why not pop along and say hello!

Cat adoption in Ipswich

Could you provide a loving new home for a cat in Ipswich or surrounding areas? During the process of adopting a cat from us, we’ll consider everything from your potential pet’s personality and how this fits with your lifestyle, to your home environment – creating the perfect match for both cat and owner and the start of a wonderful feline friendship. Find out more about adopting a cat with our guide.

Our adoption fee is £75 for an adult cat, and £95 for a kitten under 6 months. For this adoption fee you can be sure that your new companion has received a health check by a veterinary professional, has been vaccinated, spayed or neutered, treated for fleas and worms, given additional medical treatments if required and microchipped. One month's free Pet Plan Insurance is also included.

Cats available for adoption from Cats Protection Ipswich Branch are featured below. To express your interest in a particular cat, please enquire via their listing. We sometimes have other cats and kittens available not as yet advertised, available for adoption soon and direct homing requests, so please give us a call. For an informal chat or general enquiry about your suitability, or the adoption process, please call Lin our Adoption Officer in Ipswich on 07773 635 114 or email adoption@ipswich.cats.org.uk
