What we do
South Wirral Cats Protection is one of a network of over 250 volunteer run branches and 31 Cat Adoption Centres covering the UK. The main difference is that branches do not have a shelter facility but are managed by volunteers who work from their own homes

The branch was founded in 2002 and is a very active branch with many supporters, several cat fosterers and a great team of fundraisers. We welcome new volunteers to join our merry band.
Our main objectives are:

• Homing: to find good homes for stray and unwanted cats and kittens
• Neutering: to support and encourage the neutering of cats
 Education: to improve people's understanding of cats and their care

Like every branch of Cats Protection, we work tirelessly to improve the wellbeing of cats and kittens. As well the charity's three key objectives we are active in many areas of cat welfare. Here are some of the ways in which we do this:

We promote responsible cat ownership: 
by providing non-veterinary advice on the care of cats and kittens

We have a dedicated group of fosterers who look after the cats that come into our care whilst new loving homes are found for them

We provide a home to home service whereby we act as a go-between for cats able to stay with their owners until a new home is found

We keep a Lost and Found Register of cats reported to us as lost or found. We dedicate time to working to reunite cats with their owners

e encourage neutering of all cats and kittens not involved in breeding programmes and champion neutering as the best way to ensure there will be fewer unwanted felines in the future

We help with the cost of neutering for
 cat owners on a low income or who receive benefits to assist them with the cost of neutering their cat

We facilitate the trapping and neutering of feral cats with our trap-neuter-return policy, while any kittens young enough to be socialised with be taken into our care and found homes

We offer an extensive range of leaflets on all aspects of cat care and ailments. These can also be downloaded from our national website

We campaign on behalf of cats on measures to protect them from abandonment, harm and neglect

We attend fundraising events throughout the year to raise the money to make all of the above possible. These are run by our dedicated band of volunteers. If you would like to join us, even for an hour or two to help out, you would be very welcome

e do not deal with cruelty cases. If you have concerns over the neglect or ill-treatment of a cat, you should contact the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999
