Speaking up for cats – what it means

Our Advocacy team speaks up for cats and campaigns for change across the UK. We work with and influence politicians and decision makers to create a better world for cats. All advocacy campaigns are driven by issues of cat welfare.

Madison Rogers, Head of Advocacy, Campaigns & Government Relations says: “One of our aims is to make sure cats are not forgotten by decision makers. Cats are often regarded as not needing protection, that they are able to look after themselves. However they do need protection and through our advocacy work we are highlighting where policy change is needed.”
