What we do

At Cats Protection we work tirelessly to improve the lives of unwanted, abandoned or stray cats & kittens by finding them loving new homes. 

Until new homes are found cats and kittens are cared for at our Adoption Centre. We operate under strict guidelines to ensure the health and wellbeing of all cats and kittens in our care.

In York and the surrounding area we re-home unwanted, abandoned or stray cats. Cats come to us for many reasons.  We can usually guarantee we will be full to bursting point, especially when kitten season gets into full swing. 

We actively promote neutering of all cats and offer advice to cat owners on all aspects of cat welfare. We aim to educate cat owners about the many benefits of neutering and dispel the popular myths which exist. We can assist people on a low income by providing a neutering voucher to reduce the cost of neutering their cat.

We endeavour to manage the population of feral cats in our area. We have cat traps which we make available to the public (for a small deposit) for the purposes of trapping, neutering & returning to site (T-N-R). By doing this we hope to control the local feral cat population and ensure they are healthy. 

We have an extensive range of Cats Protection Cat Care leaflets and can also offer advice to cat owners. You can also find lots of help on our main website HERE.

Our advice is not intended to be a substitute for professional veterinary opinions and you should always have your vet's contact details available.
