Facts about our job

From humble beginnings in 1927, Cats Protection has become the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. We have over 250 volunteer-run branches and 32 adoption centres across the UK which help around 200,000 cats and kittens every year.

It is thanks to the tireless dedication and hard work of our staff and our network of over 9,100 volunteers that we are able to be there for the cats and kittens that need us most. We never put a healthy cat to sleep and will ensure that every cat in our care is warm, fed and loved until we find them a loving new home.

Our volunteer-run branches and adoption centres take in cats in need and ensure that they receive all the veterinary care and attention that they need to help them get back on their paws.

We also provide an array of cat care information via our publications, website and Helpline; promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.
