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

Founded in 1927, Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. In 2018 we helped 184,000 cats and kittens, including 26,000 feral cats, through our national network of over 250 volunteer-run branches and 36 centres (in 2017 we helped over 193,000 cats, including 28,000 ferals). That’s the equivalent of helping 500 cats a day.


Our strategy identifies four aims to help us help more cats:

Increasing awareness. We will significantly increase awareness of Cats Protection and our work.

Improving understanding of cats’ needs. As the leading authority on cats we will help people better understand their needs in order to improve the welfare of all cats.

Reducing overpopulation of cats. We will help to reduce overpopulation of cats through targeted neutering campaigns and education, by directing more resources to the promotion of early neutering and by doing more research and gathering better data on the impact of our neutering work.

Rehoming cats. We will home more cats until our work on information, education and neutering reduces the long-term need for homing. In the longer term our work will mean that there are fewer cats needing our help.
