Who are Cats Protection?

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cat welfare charity. We help over 200,000 cats and kittens each year – that’s the equivalent of more than 500 cats a day!

Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

We have some simple and clear plans to help us help cats and make sure others are kind to them.

Finding cats new homes

Cats come to us for many reasons. Some might have been abandoned and for others, their owners are unable to look after them properly. We make sure that the cats in our care go to good homes with owners that are right for them.

Neutering cats

Neutering is the best way to stop more unwanted cats coming into the world. One female cat can be responsible for around 20,000 cats in a lifetime. That’s a lot of cats! There aren’t enough homes to take them all. Neutering is an operation which stops cats from having kittens, so there aren’t as many cats in the world. To learn more about neutering, click here.
