Cats Protection is the UK's oldest cat welfare charity, established 75 years ago.
How it all began.....on 16th May 1927 a meeting of cat lovers was held at Claxton Hall in London at which it was resolved "..that a society be formed to be devoted exclusively to promoting the interests of cats and that it be named The Cats protection League." Our name was shortened to Cats Protection in 1999, but our purpose remains the same as it did over 75 years ago.
Today Cats Protection have over 260 branches nationwide, all run on a voluntary basis. Worcester & District Branch was established in 1978, and last year our branch successfully re-homed over 300 cats in our area.
Our area covers the
WR1, WR2, WR3, WR4, WR5, WR6, WR7, WR8, WR9, WR10, WR13, WR14 & WR15 (for information on your local branch, if you are not in our area, please click here to see our Head Quarters website).
Cats Protection rescues and re-homes unwanted and abandoned cats, and promotes responsible cat ownership.
TO INFORM THE PUBLIC IN THE CARE OF CATS & KITTENS
TO ENCOURAGE THE NEUTERING OF ALL CATS NOT REQUIRED FOR BREEDING
TO RESCUE STRAYS, UNWANTED CATS & KITTENS, REHABILITATE & RE-HOME THEM
The more people we have to help us, spreads our workload and makes it possible for us to help even more cats. As a branch we have helped many thousands of cats and kittens over the years, some desperately in need of care and veterinary treatment.
With the help of our dedicated
volunteers, we are able to look after our cats in care until a suitable home
can be found for them. If you feel that you could help us in any way
