Our aim is to help cats and kittens in need, from Gloucester and the surrounding areas, to find new loving homes, so please browse our site to look for your new cat, send us a donation or read about events past and future, or join us by becoming a volunteer
Please note that we only have a very limited number of fostering spaces. As a local, volunteer-run branch, we only have a few fostering pens in some of our volunteers' gardens. We are not an adoption centre or large shelter. The nearest Cats Protection adoption centre is at Allensmore, near Hereford.
We look forward to hearing from you, whether by phone or e-mail, contact us
Do please check our events
page for forthcoming events.
Cats Protection Shop in Newent
We would like to clarify that Cats Protection has not operated a charity shop in Newent since February 2012. The new occupiers of the premises on Broad Street, Newent are not Cats Protection or affiliated to us.
At the present time Gloucester Cats Protection covers the postcode areas of GL1, GL2, GL3, GL4 and GL19.
If you have any questions regarding this please contact 07929 279 438
Home to Home service
Even if our fostering accommodation is full (as often it is!), we can still rehome cats by offering a Home to Home service. We can take details of cats needing a home and may be able to match those with the wishes of individuals who have contacted us wishing to offer a new home to a cat in our care. We would then put the two parties in contact with each other. Please note that under this arrangement we would not accept the cat into the care of Cats Protections, and the process after being put in touch would be down to the individuals concerned. We are, however, always happy to answer any cat-related issues, so please do get in touch.
If you are happy for your personal contact details to be placed directly on to the website then please email the following address and they will be uploaded with your cat request details:
If you have a cat to re-home please provide us with the following details:
the cat's name, age, sex, colour and a photo if possible
- whether vaccinated, and if so, when the next booster is due
- whether micro-chipped
- whether neutered
- whether it can go to a home where there are other cats, children or other animals
Please let us also know of any other details which you think the new owner should know, such as: the cat loves to be groomed or likes to help with the ironing by lying on top of the freshly laundered clothes.
