Welcome to the brand-new Cats Protection blog!
For anyone who has not yet heard of us, Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. We were founded way back in 1927 under the name ‘Cats Protection League’. A lot has changed since those early days – including our name, which was changed to Cats Protection in 1998. We now help over 230,000 cats and kittens every year through our nationwide network of volunteer-run branches and centrally-run adoption centres. There are three core areas to our work; finding loving homes for cats, promoting and carrying out neutering to prevent unwanted kittens from being born and educating people about cats and their care. You can find out plenty more about us and our work at www.cats.org.uk
None of this would be possible without our remarkable volunteers who willingly give up their time to a cause they are passionate about. The majority of them carry out Cats Protection’s work from their own homes, dividing their time between this work and full-time jobs. In this blog, we hope to bring you their stories and introduce you to the amazing people behind our successes across the UK.
