What we do

Cats Protection was founded in 1927 and has since grown to become the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. Through a network of volunteers and employees in 250 branches and over 30 centres, the organisation now helps around 200,000 cats and kittens a year.

As well as looking after cats, we provide information for cat owners. This is sent out via our publications, such as The Cat magazine, website and other digital channels as well as being supported by our National Information Line. Here are just some of the services we provide as an organisation in keeping with our key aims – homing, neutering and education.

Rehoming cats

We provide homes of thousands of cats and kittens each year through our branch and centre network, with help from many dedicated volunteers. Want to adopt a cat?

Rehoming cats

Your cat into our care

Relinquishing your cat is never an easy decision to make. There are many reasons why owners have to rehome their cat.

There are some situations where you might be able to keep your cat, but there are others that are entirely unavoidable.

If you do have to give up your cat, your local Cats Protection can help ensure that they are looked after and rehomed to the right individual or family.
