From humble beginnings in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity.

We help around 200,000 cats and kittens every year through our network of over 230 volunteer-run branches and 36 centres.

Our work doesn’t stop there, however: we also provide an array of cat care information via our publications, help and advice section and National Information Line; promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.


Cats Protection rehomed over 41,000 cats and kittens in 2018 thanks to our network of branches and centres, giving them a new start in life.

While some situations are unavoidable, there are some circumstances where you may be able to keep your feline friend.

Speaking to your local Cats Protection will ensure your pet is in a safe place and can be placed in the right home.
