Welcome to Stranraer & District Cats Protection Branch
We are Cats Protection covering the Wigtownshire area. Our area covers the west of Dumfries and Galloway from Stranraer to just west of Gatehouse of Fleet, postcodes DG8 and DG9.

We have been established in the area since 1999, helping to rehome cats, offering assisted neutering, providing an advice service on kittens and cats and assisting with lost and found cats.

The Stranraer District comprises a small group of dedicated volunteers who work together to achieve the above. We always welcome new volunteers into our fold, if you think you have some time to offer please get in touch.  All out of pocket expenses are re-imbursed, and support/training is available if desired.


If you want to get your cats neutered, please check with your vet that they are willing to do it before applying for a voucher. They consider each case individually. If you have female cats at the age of breeding we ask you keep them in until you can get them neutered. If you have different sexes in the same house and or several cats, please discuss this with the vet as it may qualify you to get them done.


Found catThis cat was lucky, his owners recognised him in a newspaper appeal. When they came to collect him, they were amazed to find another of their cats, gone missing some months ago, being cared for in the same foster house. The moral of this story is; when your cat goes missing log it with all your local animal charities - we may already have your pet in our care! We can't put every found cat in the newspaper, but we do keep a list of our lost and found cats on the website. This page also offers advice on what to do if your pet goes missing.

See the Lost and Found section for more details.
