Every day hundreds of unwanted cats enter the care of Cats Protection, and each one deserves a second chance.

Volunteers and staff work tirelessly to rescue and rehome abandoned and unwanted cats, as well as much loved cats whose owners can no longer care for them. It provides shelter and care for as long as it takes to find their forever home.

People's Postcode Lottery players are supporting this work by funding vital cat care and volunteer team leader roles at adoption centres across England, Scotland and Wales, as well as providing microchips for cats leaving the charity's care, ensuring they have a safe and permanent means of identification and increasing the chances of a happy reunion should they go missing.

Our players are also supporting Cats Protection's cat behaviour work, helping branches and centres to provide the best possible care for each cat while it awaits a loving new home, and providing information to the public about positive cat welfare to enable more cats to live happy lives.

Through its main aims of rehoming unwanted moggies, neutering cats to reduce overpopulation, and educating people about cats and their welfare, the charity is working towards its vision of a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Player support helps Cats Protection to ensure a brighter future for cats.
