Thank you to players of People’s Postcode Lottery for supporting our work to help cats and the people who love them.

Since 2018, over £9.9 million has been raised by players to help us make a better life for cats. This funding supports all areas of our work, including: 

  • research. We are the leaders in research on cat welfare. With over 10 million cats in the UK, our research ensures that every bit of our work has a cat’s best interest at heart. This includes owned cats, feral cats and cats in our care 
  • campaigns. We work to make sure cats and their owners are not forgotten by government decision makers. Our campaigns change laws to give cats more protection 
  • neutering. We run the world's largest single-species neutering programme, for both pet and feral cats, to support a healthy and balanced cat population 
  • education and advice. We use our research and decades of experience to support cat owners to keep their pets happy, healthy and safe. Helping people understand their cats better means we can often avoid the need for owners to give up their pets 
  • rehoming. When rehoming is the right thing to do, we look after cats with care and kindness, and help them find a loving new place to live  
  • supporting cat owners. Our Lifeline service provides temporary loving homes to cats while their owners flee domestic abuse, until they can be safely reunited. And our Paws to Listen service offers support to those dealing with the loss of their cat 

Established in 1927, we’re always here for cats and the people who care for them. Our key achievements in 2023, highlighted below, show the scope and importance of our work:  

  • we supported over 400 cats every day  
  • we helped to neuter over 157,000 cats and kittens   
  • 6.8 million website visitors accessed our news, information and advice  
  • 9,200 volunteers gave their dedication, skills and time to support cats across the UK   
  • 1,030 cat welfare talks were given to 33,300 people in the community   

We are incredibly grateful to players of People’s Postcode Lottery for helping us achieve this. 

Funding is awarded through Postcode Animal Trust. The trust champions the conservation and welfare of animals, highlighting the profound joy that animals bring to people's lives. 

To date, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £1.3 billion for thousands of charities and local good causes.
