Cat Sponsorship:
Why not make a cat lover’s day by gifting them Cats Protection Sponsorship? Cats Protection Sponsorship is a truly rewarding gift, offering a wonderful way for the cat lover in your life to help vulnerable cats and kittens. It is a perfect gift for adults and children. Your friend or relative will receive their very own welcome pack including a personalised certificate, a photo introducing them to the lovely cat they're currently caring along with a photo album to collect all future photos that we will send them of the cats in their pen. They will also receive newsletters and emails showing stories of all the wonderful cats they're helping along the way.

Make a donation:
A donation no matter how big or small will help us with the branches day-to-day costs. Donations go directly to help the cats and kittens in our care, paying for things such as veterinary care and food. Click here to make a donation

Become a branch volunteer:
Volunteering opportunities are wide and varied. Have you got some spare time that you would like to spend supporting your local branch, whether it is for a few hours a month or a weekly commitment? There are many roles available including hands on cat work, administrative roles, fundraising, cat trapping, home visiting or fostering. We are keen to have more helpers and will give you a warm welcome. Email us to find out more.

Become a fosterer:
Can you offer a homeless cat temporary accommodation? Our fosterers take on the care of cats and kittens until a new home can be found for them. If you are interested in volunteering as a Fosterer with Richmond please email

Purchase an item from our Amazon wish list:
We would be delighted if you could purchase an item from our wish list which will assist our fosterers in being able to look after the cats in our care and of course provide for the cats and kittens, click here to see our wish list. Thank you

Other ways to support us:

- Like our facebook page at

- Insure your cat with Petplan

- One of the most important things you can do is to have your pet neutered and encourage family and friends to do likewise.

- Be aware of cats in your local area so you can identify and report a stray. If you come across a cat that is in trouble take direct action to help it, or call us for advice. Alternatively contact the following organisations.

- Microchip your cat. This makes it easier to reunite any lost cat with their owner and could save a lot of heartache if your cat does ever go missing.

- You can help us simply by doing your shopping online. If you shop online, you can purchase from a large number of retailers and raise funds for the branch at the same time. Please check back for more information.

- Most importantly, educate your children to love animals and to treat them with kindness. Teach them about neutering, about the commitment you need to look after a cat or kitten and the cost of keeping animals on a day-to-day basis.
