WELCOME TO SWANSEA & DISTRICT CATS PROTECTION
Cats Protection has been helping cats for 90 years. It is the largest feline charity in the UK, aiding over 140,000 cats and kittens every year, and is made up of approximately 265 self-funding voluntary groups across the country.
Swansea & District Cats Protection is run entirely by unpaid volunteers who are dedicated to making the lives of cats and kittens in our area better.
Our website is updated regularly to make sure we provide up to date information on our cats and Branch activities.
Please be aware we are not veterinary professionals and do not operate any emergency services, sick or injured cats need to be taken to a qualified vet.
As stated we are all volunteers most with full time jobs so operate a messaging service so please be patient if we do not respond to your message immediately
Every penny we raise goes directly to the cats in our care, paying for boarding costs as well as vet bills, which can be very expensive. Each cat we rescue or have given to us is taken to the vet for a health check, blood test, inoculations, microchipping and neutering where necessary, which costs us an average £150 per cat. All cats, including ferals, are also treated for fleas, ear mites and worms. We rarely receive donations from people who hand in their cats in to be rehomed and so we rely on the kindness of our fellow cat lovers to fund our charity.
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.
Our objectives are:
To find good homes for cats in need
To support and encourage the neutering of cats
To improve people's understanding of cats and their care
It’s an ambitious vision. However, we truly believe it can be achieved because of our passion, our professional approach and simply because cats are among the UK’s most popular companion pets
