Our volunteers are not undertaking any face to face activities until further notice. This includes trap-neuter-return work, scanning cats for microchips, collecting donations and rehoming cats. Our West Kirby charity shop has temporarily closed.

The cats currently with our fosterers are all being very well cared for but will likely be staying where there are for the foreseeable future. They will receive veterinary care as necessary in an urgent or emergency situation but all routine veterinary treatments are on hold.

We will also be halting the direct homing scheme as although it doesn't involve our volunteers undertaking any face to face encounters, it does encourage the cat owner and potential re-homer to come into contact.

If you urgently need our help to rehome your cat please call the national helpline 03000 12 12 12 and they will liaise with our regional management as to whether we or another branch / adoption centre are in a position to help. Please only do this if necessary, for example if you or the cats will be without a home in the near future, or if there is a major health issue involved.

If your cat needs urgent veterinary treatment please call your vet in the first instance and your veterinary team will be able to triage the case over the phone. They will likely then offer a phone, video or face to face consultation dependent on the urgency / need for the patient to be seen. Please make sure you are aware of your veterinary practice's opening hours and consult protocols at this time.


North Wirral Cats Protection is one of a network of over 250 volunteer run branches and 31 Cat Adoption Centres covering the UK. Branches do not have a shelter facility but are managed by volunteers who work from their own homes.

Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Our main activities are neutering, to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow; homing, both of cats in branch foster care and through our direct homing scheme; and education, on the importance of neutering, microchipping and other aspects of cat care.

We also have a charity shop located on 15 The Crescent Street (West Kirby), which supports the branch by raising vital funds.
