What we do

Formed in 1927, Cats Protection (CP) has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity. We now care for and find new homes for around 60,000 cats and kittens every year, through our network of 29 Adoption Centres and 260 voluntary-run Branches.

Today, Cats Protection’s 5,500 volunteers and staff are busier than ever. Working to meet the increasing demands placed upon us by a growing domestic and feral feline population.

Together we rehome around 60,000 cats and answer over 100,000 calls from the public every year. We do this work through our Branches and our Adoption Centres.

Our work doesn't stop there though: we also provide an array of cat care information via our publication, website and National Helpline, we promote the benefits of neutering for a happier pet and distribute education packs to a third of schools in the UK. Please explore our website to discover more about CP's work and services.

The Sutton and Cheam Cats Protection branch was formed in 1982 and since then we have rescued numerous stray, unwanted and injured cats and homed and neutered thousands of them in the London Borough of Sutton.  We are all volunteers giving up our spare time to cope with the numerous cat problems in this area. 

Our vision is to ensure that every cat is given the chance of a life where it will be treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs. We also seek to alleviate the problems of unwanted cats, by offering information and advice about responsible cat ownership and promoting the benefits of neutering.

In Autumn 2015, the branch expanded and our new name Sutton, Kingston & District Cats Protection will reflect this change.  The postcodes that we cover are KT1, KT2, KT3, KT4, SM1, SM2, SM3, SM4, SM5, SM6 and parts of SW19 and SW20. These cover the following areas:

• Sutton
• Cheam
• Wallington
• Carshalton
• New Malden
• Raynes Park
• Worcester Park
• Parts of Kingston and Wimbledon

We are currently recruiting new volunteers to help with all aspects of our branch, including:

• Homing
• Cat Welfare
• Publicity
• Administration
• Events
• School Liaison
• Fundraising

If you have a few hours a week you can spare to help a small, friendly team, we would love to hear from you!
