What we do

Weymouth & District Branch provides a service to

Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Bridport, Sherborne & the Purbecks

& all the areas in between.

Our Branch offers advice on many aspects of cat care, and maintains a register of lost & found cats.

Locally we operate the Cats Protection assisted neutering scheme, providing vouchers which are accepted by all local vets as part-payment for the neutering of cats, (helping people experiencing financial difficulties). 

We accommodate stray and unwanted cats and kittens, whilst always seeking good 'forever homes' for them.

This work is currently done by a very small friendly team of volunteers and we are keen to build upon our current success with new key team members.

Do take a look at our volunteering pages, your skills might be just what we are looking for!   

We are all unpaid volunteers.



Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.
The national vision is very much in our minds as we do our work in the Weymouth area.  Cats Protection has simple and clear objectives to help cats:

Finding good homes for cats in need

Supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats


Improving people’s understanding of cats and their care
