Welcome to Cats Protection Waltham Forest
Our branch is staffed entirely by volunteers and operates within the following postcodes: E10, E11, E17, E18 and IG8. Within this area we help support the charity with their key objectives:
Adopting - to find good homes for cats in need
Neutering - to support and encourage the neutering of cats and kittens
Informing - to improve people's understanding of cats and their care through education and advice.
We also help with feral cats in the neighbourhood by neutering them. If you want to find out more, view our page; What is TNR?
Run entirely by volunteers, the branch relies on donations to look after and rehome the cats in our care. There are so many ways to help us raise money; no matter how big or small, any amount of money donated will make a real difference. Visit our support us page on how you can get involved.

We operate a local helpline service on 0345 260 1681, if there is no answer then leave a message and a volunteer will get back to you in due course. You can also get in touch but filling out a Contact form. It is important when you contact us you tell us your full postcode and a telephone number so we can contact you and deal with your enquiry properly.
Please note that, as is often the case with cat rescue charities our resources are limited and often our foster places are full. Therefore we are rarely able to take cats in on short notice and have to operate a waiting list.
EMERGENCIES - Please note we are NOT staffed or equipped to deal with emergency situations. If you know about an animal that is injured or being treated cruelly, call the RSPCA's national 24 hour cruelty and advice line on 0300 1234 999 or visit https://www.rspca.org.uk/
VETERINARY CARE - Please note that we are unable to offer free veterinary care. The PDSA offers veterinary treatment free (subject to available funding) to those on certain benefits. To be eligible, pet owners need to live within the defined postcode catchment area of a PDSA PetAid hospital or PetAid practice and must be receiving finanical help with their housing costs through either housing benefit or council benefit. More information can be obtained from the PDSA website https://www.psda.org/ or call the main number 0800 731n2502
