What we do

We are here to help cats and kittens in the Reading area, especially to find loving new homes for strays, abandoned cats, or those whose owners can no longer care for them.

The Reading and District Branch of Cats Protection is one of over two hundred and fifty branches of CP volunteers in the UK, rescuing, treating, neutering and re-homing unwanted or abandoned cats and kittens. We aim to help several hundred local cats each year.

Established in 1985, we operate through a network of fosterers, who provide temporary accommodation for needy cats until safe, loving permanent homes can be found for them. The fosterers are supported by other volunteers who concentrate on fund-raising and the other administrative tasks that are needed by the organisation.
