We need you!

Cats Protection is calling on UK governments to introduce compulsory microchipping of owned cats. It's a quick, easy and painless procedure that can help reunite owners with their lost or stolen pets. 

Whilst microchipping for dogs is already mandatory, we are campaigning for the same laws to be introduced for cats too. We are just over 8,000 signatures away from our target, and although the government call for evidence closed earlier this year, you can still support our campaign by signing and sharing the petition here. 

In 2018, 8 out of 10 stray cats handed in to our adoption centres in England were unchipped, leading to longer and sometimes unsuccessful efforts to reunite them to their owners. Microchipping gives a lost cat the best chance of being returned to the loving families.

The welfare of cats and kittens is our number one priority; please help make sure more cats are microchipped to reduce the number of unidentified stray cats by signing our petition today!
