How your miles will help cats

Without your support, the teams at our centres and branches across the UK simply wouldn’t be able to provide the incredible level of care they do on a daily basis for cats in need of our help.

  • £20 could cover the cost of 12 blankets, providing comfort and warmth to a number of cats while they wait to find their new home 
  • Just £50 could cover the cost of feeding 250 cats in our care for a day
  •  £100 could provide a microchip scanner to one of our facilities to check all new cats coming into our care and help reunite them with their owners

You can choose any local Cats Protection branch or centre to receive 100% of your registration fee and the funds you raise from your challenge, making life better for the cats in your area.
