Support us

Many thanks for checking out this page – Read on for easy-peasy, no-cost or low-cost ways you can raise funds to help unwanted and abandoned cats find lovely new homes!

As a Cats Protection branch, run entirely by volunteers, we have to raise the vast majority of our funds ourselves. The branch homes around 300 cats and kittens every year, and every one of these felines receives all the veterinary care it needs (as a minimum including a preliminary vet check, plus vaccinations, neutering and microchipping as necessary).

We do our best to minimise costs where feasible (and some of the local vets are very kind to us in this respect) but this level of care, plus of course food, litter and everything else the cats need, takes a lot of money every single month.

Here are some easy and practical ways you can raise funds to keep the branch running, at little or no cost to you:

 Sponsor a cat cabin
