Cats Protection is delighted to have received over £2.2 million since 2018 thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery.

This support has helped us to successfully find loving new homes for more cats, by funding essential Cat Care Assistant and Volunteer Team Leaders roles at our centres across England, Scotland and Wales.

In 2020, players will be further supporting our homing work by funding two behaviour posts, which provide best practice advice and practical support to our centres and branches, and providing 10,000 microchips for our centres, helping us to ensure that every cat leaves our care with a safe and permanent means of identification.   

How have People's Postcode Lottery helped cats in our care?

See how support from players helped us care for unlucky stray cat DJ Loveham at our National Cat Adoption Centre in the video below, featuring comedian Bob Mortimer.

“I have yet to find something more rewarding than spending hours and hours with a nervous cat, getting past the fearful and defensive behaviour to the sweet cat underneath, bringing them one step closer to being rehomed."

"I thoroughly enjoy my job as Cat Care Assistant and feel so lucky to be in my position and able to offer help to the cats that come into our care.”

Holly Cole, Cat Care Assistant, Cornwall Adoption Centre

“It makes our team very proud when the volunteers attribute their successes to skills and experience they’ve gained through volunteering."

"I can also be there to provide additional support to volunteers who may need this, which can include working with external organisations and support workers to enable our volunteers to realise their potential."

"One of the most wonderful things about my role is getting to know people from so many different backgrounds, who are all united by their love of cats!”

Jess Wager, Volunteer Team Leader, London centres
