Paws Protect is a specialist cat-fostering service, helping families with cats escape domestic abuse.

We offer a free, confidential fostering service, taking care of cats until their owners are safely able to be reunited. Cats joining Paws Protect will be health checked before going to the home of one of our foster carers, where they will be treated as a family pet.

Paws Protect operates in the following areas: London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Kent, Sussex and Surrey and is able to accept referrals from owners and professionals supporting those fleeing domestic abuse.

Referrals (both self-referrals and those from professionals) are handled by our experienced, woman-only team via our referral line or email:

0345 260 1280

What happens next?

We will need some information about the cat/s and owner, and then the team will arrange a safe collection.

All information between the client and foster carer is confidential. The fosterer will not know the identity or whereabouts of the cat owner and vice versa, ensuring complete anonymity.
