Welcome to Cats Protection Swale Branch

Welcome to Cats Protection Swale Branch.  We’re here to support cats and kittens in Swale, covering postcodes: ME9, ME10, ME11, ME12 and ME13.

Run by a small team of dedicated, cat-loving volunteers, we’re passionate about improving the lives of cats and kittens in Swale, working to find loving new homes for local cats in our care, offering support with neutering, welfare, lost and found cats, as well as general education and awareness within the Swale area.

Cat adoption in Swale

Could you provide a loving new home for a cat or kitten?

During the process of adopting a cat from us, we’ll consider everything from your potential cats personality and how this fits with your lifestyle, to your home environment – creating the perfect match for both cat and owner and the start of a wonderful feline friendship.  To assist us with this, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire.  You can request one by emailing  
If you don't have email, please call 0345 371 2755 stating the name of the cat/kitten you're interested in, let them know it's Swale branch and we'll contact you.

All potential adopters will have a virtual or in person home visit, arranged at a mutually convenient time.  If you are renting your home, we will require written permission from the landlord before any home visit can take place.
For further information on home visits, download our leaflet by clicking here

Please note that we do not have a main shelter for public visits.  All of our cats are placed in foster homes until we can find them forever families.

You can also find help and advice on all cat care and online learning on the Cats Protection website at

Volunteer at Cats Protection Swale Branch

Without volunteers, Cats Protection Swale Branch simply wouldn't exist. Our amazing, friendly volunteers are a diverse group with a shared love of cats who fit volunteering around their home lives and personal commitments.

We're often looking to welcome new volunteers to join our brilliant team. As well as meeting great people and making an incredible difference to the cats of Swale, you'll enjoy practical benefits such as discounted pet insurance.

The purpose of this role is to support the organisation with communications and administration at a local level. You’ll play an active part in the branch committee and support the branch with record keeping and planning, thus enabling more cats to be helped.

FOSTERER - Volunteer
Across the UK, many cats are cared for by volunteer fosterers who provide a stable, safe and loving environment in their homes or in purpose-built pens in their gardens. They provide vital hands-on care and accommodation to stray or abandoned cats or cats whose owners could sadly no longer keep them, and are part of a dedicated team of volunteers committed to finding new homes for cats in need. Our fosterers carry out this role with support from their local branch or centre. Most of our fosterers care for one or two cats at a time and enjoy providing lots of TLC to those cats, who have been pre-loved or have had a difficult start in life. Some of our fosterers look after new mums and kittens and provide round-the-clock care to newborns to give them the best start in life.

Our fundraising event helpers have the exciting and varied role of helping at local fundraising events - such as cakes sales, barn dances, quiz nights – and everything in between!

Our fundraising events organisers help to plan and deliver local fundraising events to raise the vital funds needed to help our feline friends. They use their passion for cats and people to book attendance at summer fairs, car shows, boot fairs and anywhere that they see as a good fundraising opportunity.

Our volunteer website editors promote the activities of our local volunteer groups and teams by helping keep their websites relevant, up to date and engaging for members of the public. Local websites are one of the places members of the public will look to find out more about Cats Protection. A positive local profile can help raise funds, promote adopting a cat, promote neutering and make sure as many people as possible learn about great cat welfare.
