Your questions answered
When supporting a charity, it is understandable that you want to know how your donation helps and where the money goes. That’s why we have come up with a useful list of frequently asked questions in order to answer any queries you might have about Cats Protection.
Do I just sponsor one cat?
No, you'll help lots! As a Cats Protection Sponsor you'll sponsor a pen at one of our adoption centres. So whenever we rehome a cat that's being cared for in your pen, a new cat in need will take its place. This means your kindness will make a difference to many unwanted cats and kittens.
How does my sponsorship money help?
Your sponsorship helps to fund the food, shelter and medical care of the cats directly in your pen. It also contributes towards the care of every cat and kitten in Cats Protection centres and branches around the UK.
Where is my pen?
Your pen is located at one of our many Cats Protection adoption centres.
Can I give Cats Sponsorship as a gift?
Yes. You're welcome to give Cat Sponsorship as a gift – it's ideal for anyone you know who loves cats. Please note, the sponsorship pack will be sent directly to your gift recipient.
Will I hear about all the cats that stay in the pen I'm sponsoring?
We'll send you as much information as we can about the cats that stay in your pen. Of course, if a cat stays with us for a very short space of time we probably won't be able to let you know about them. But we'll keep you up to date as much as we can.
Can I visit?
Yes, our adoption centres are open to the public and you are more than welcome to come and see us. You can find a list of centres on our website – it's worth calling before you visit to make sure they are open for visitors.
How much does it cost?
You can become a Cats Protection Sponsor from just £6 a month – that's the equivalent of 19p a day. Of course, you're welcome to make a bigger gift each month, or sponsor more than one pen – we need all the help we can get to care for these vulnerable cats.
Can I adopt a sponsor cat?
All our sponsor cats are available for adoption but we cannot guarantee that they will be at the time of enquiry as we aim to rehome all our cats as soon as possible. Please call 0800 917 2287 to find out if the cat you're interested in is still in our care.
Can my Cat Sponsor donations go to a specific Cats Protection Adoption Centre or Branch?
Yes, please call 0800 917 2287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this. A number of our sites promote Cat Sponsorship on their local Cats Protection webpages which you can sign up through to support them directly.
If you have any questions that weren’t answered here then we are more than happy to help. You can contact us with any questions you might have about sponsoring, adopting or any other queries. Contact us by telephone or by email on the following;

Click a cat to sponsor
From just £6 a month, your sponsor pen will be home to tiny kittens, old moggies and so many other unwanted cats. To get started, just choose the cat and pen you’d like to sponsor below.
One of the greatest ways to give
Over the course of a year, your sponsorship will provide dozens of adorable cats and kittens with the essentials until they are ready to be rehomed.
Unwanted cats desperately need shelter. Your cosy pen is heated and full of snuggly blankets to give an abandoned cat a warm welcome.
You’ll help us microchip and neuter each cat, provide veterinary care and give lots of fuss and attention until we find them their new homes.
From tiny, frail kittens to older cats with special requirements, your gift will help us provide a tailored diet to make sure every cat is fit and healthy.
