From humble beginnings in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading cat charity.

We help an estimated 157,000 cats and kittens a year through our national network which includes around 210 volunteer-run branches and 34 centres.

Our work doesn’t stop there, however: we also provide an array of cat care information via our publications, help and advice section and National Information Line; 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.


We rehome thousands of cats each year through our network of branches and centres, giving many cats another chance in life.

Thinking about giving up a cat?

Giving up your cat is not easy - whether you've experienced a bereavement, relationship break-up or changes in your environment. 

While we're keen to provide advice to keep your feline friend at home with you, we can also help in guiding you through the process of rehoming your cat.

Speaking to your local Cats Protection means your pet will be in a safe place and will be placed in the right home for their needs.
