What we do
Cats Protection 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.
Trafford Cats Protection covers the following areas:
WA13, WA14, WA15, M16, M17, M31, M32, M33, M41
We also seek to alleviate the problem of unwanted cats, by offering information and advice about responsible cat ownership and promoting the benefits of neutering.
Cats Protection is a strong, united charity with simple and clear objectives:
By finding good homes for cats in need.
By supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats.
By improving people’s understanding of cats and their care.
One of Cats Protection’s key aims is neutering. It is the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK. We also strongly believe that having a companion animal neutered is a responsible part of pet ownership.
To find out more about the benefits of neutering, plus some myths and facts about it, you can:
If you need financial assistance for neutering your pet cat or a stray cat, the branch may be able to offer help towards the cost.
Criteria for assistance with neutering.
Due to our limited resources we are unfortunately not always able to help everybody. Means testing is one method by which we can ensure those on the lowest incomes are receiving help. The current list of means tested benefits is: Income Support, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit, Pension Credit, Income Based Employment Support Allowance (ESA), Income Based Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), Working Tax Credits and Universal Credit.
Trafford Branch does not receive any funding from Cats Protection - we are responsible for all our own fundraising. Our branch is run purely by volunteers - no one receives remuneration for any time spent volunteering. We volunteer because we care and together we can make a difference.
If you have a feral cat, please call the Cats Protection Neutering Helpline directly on 03000 12 12 12 and select option 2, the adviser will be able to tell you what help we can offer.
If you're not covered by one of the postcodes listed above you can either contact your local branch to find out what schemes are available in your area, or call the neutering helpline on 03000 12 12 12 for more information.
Under our Free Neutering Campaign in 2018 - circa 415 cats/kittens were neutered and microchipped, including flea and worm treatment.
