**COVID-19 UPDATE 24TH MARCH 2020**
Our volunteers are not undertaking any face to face activities until further notice. This includes trap-neuter-return work, scanning cats for microchips, collecting donations and rehoming cats. Our Aldridge charity shop has temporarily closed.
If you urgently need our help to rehome your cat please call the national helpline 03000 12 12 12 and they will liaise with our regional management as to whether we or another branch / adoption centre are in a position to help. Please only do this if necessary, for example if you or the cats will be without a home in the near future, or if there is a major health issue involved.
If your cat needs urgent veterinary treatment please call your vet in the first instance and your veterinary team will be able to triage the case over the phone. They will likely then offer a phone, video or face to face consultation dependent on the urgency / need for the patient to be seen. Please make sure you are aware of your veterinary practice's opening hours and consult protocols at this time.
*** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***
Please note that we have temporarily suspended all operations.
We hope to be back up and running as soon as possible.

Welcome to Telford & District Cats Protection's website
Telford & District Cats Protection is one of a network of over 250 volunteer run branches and 31 Cat Adoption Centres covering the UK. We do not have a shelter facility but we are managed by a happy band of volunteers at their own homes and who are dedicated to safeguarding the health and wellbeing of cats within Telford and surrounding areas.
Whilst in our care all of our cats & kittens receive:
- A full health check
- A blood test
- Treatment for parasites
- Full course of vaccinations
- Love, time & patience
- A warm and safe place to sleep
- Food for the duration of their time in care
- Our fosterers' time
When our cats and kittens are ready to go to their furrever home they go to homes that have received a home visit and they take with them 4 weeks free pet insurance through petplan.
To help us with our costs we do ask a £50 adoption fee, but if you could be more generous it would help us do more good work with cats in our district and would be much appreciated!
