Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat welfare charity, helping around 200,000 cats and kittens each year through our network of around 230 branches and 37 centres. We care for abandoned, unwanted and neglected cats and kittens, providing them with the food, shelter and veterinary treatment they need until we are able to find them loving new homes. We also tackle the challenging issue of controlling the population of unwanted cats in the UK through our neutering work, as well as promoting the importance of good cat welfare through our campaigning and education programmes 

In 2019, we helped 191,000 cats and kittens – that’s more than 520 a day. We found new homes for 41,000 cats, reunited 2,500 lost cats with their owners and neutered 150,000 cats and kittens, including 19,000 feral cats. We also gave talks on cat welfare to 41,000 people and helped 75 families to flee domestic abuse through our Paws Protect service.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we had to close our centres in March 2020, but behind the scenes our teams of dedicated employees and volunteers on our front line worked incredibly hard looking after the thousands of cats in our care. Thankfully we were able to start homing cats again in April via our ‘hands-free homing’ service – a safe way for people to adopt, which will mean that cats can be matched and placed with their forever families.

COVID-19 has had a major impact on our work but we continue to do all we can to care for cats while also protecting our team, employees and volunteers alike. Sadly, we expect that the impact of the crisis is likely to mean many more cats needing our help in the future. With neutering still limited across the UK and with so many people facing life-changing circumstances, we will need to take care of thousands of cats and kittens in 2021 and beyond.  

Your support could help cats like Holly, an ex-stray, who was bought into our Blandford & Sturminster Newton Branch. In a sorry state, Holly was emaciated, had bad teeth and was struggling with cat flu.

 It was also discovered that she had an overactive thyroid, which was causing extreme weight-loss. After finding the right medication to manage her condition, removing five teeth and years of street grime, Holly soon began to show her loving character, enjoying regular cuddles with her fosterer. Now able to unite cats and owners by a contactless approach called hands-free homing, Holly has found a new home to call her own.
