West Lothian branch has been run since the millenium by unpaid volunteers, whose spare time is spent assisting cats and kittens in the West Lothian and West Edinburgh areas. There are always many more cats in need than we can help so we are unable to rescue outside our area. We are happy to rehome cats further away (including all of Edinburgh) within a reasonable distance. 

West Lothian Cats Protection are pleased to say that we CAN now take in new cats.

Unfortunately we are still unable to carry out home visits at this time.  

We are still rehoming cats but due to the current circumstances it is taking longer than normal to get our cats through our pre- homing process. This is in turn is having an impact on the number of cats on our webiste.

At the moment our fabulous team are matching cats with applications that have been submitted online. If you would like to adopt a cat, then please complete our online form and one of our team will be in touch as soon as they can to help find you the purrfect feline companion.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support.

'A world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs'

There is no adoption centre - our cats and kittens are housed with volunteer fosterers. All foster spaces are constantly occupied and we operate a waiting list based on waiting time and urgency. It is unlikely that we will be able to rescue a cat at short notice, except in exceptional circumstances. We aid as many cats as we can but more can be helped if you consider:



help the adopted cat and also all the cats on our waiting list because they come into care sooner



more foster spaces = more cats helped. Fostering costs nothing but time, tlc and cat treats
(finance limits the number of foster spaces)



our fostering and rehoming activities are dependent on our own fundraising
(supplemented by a discretionary grant from Cats Protection HQ)
