About Us Adopt Events Lost Found Sponsor Donate Volunteer Contact Us
We are the Southend & District branch of Cats Protection, Britain's oldest charity solely for the welfare of cats. Our branch covers post code areas SS0, SS1, SS2, SS3, SS4 & SS9, and is run entirely by volunteers.

We help thousands of needy cats every year, including finding new homes for hundreds of cats & kittens, and re-uniting cats with their owners through our lost & found register.

A number of fundraising events take place throughout the year, details of which can be found on our Events page.

We also arrange for cats to be neutered when their owners cannot afford the cost of the operation - for details, please refer to our neutering scheme below.

Well... you obviously love cats, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this!

You might be thinking you don't have the time to offer physical help, but have you considered becoming a member of our branch instead? This is a great way to show your support and, as with everything we do, you'll be helping local cats.

Members receive quarterly newsletters which keep you up to date on fundraising events and news about the local cats & kittens we're helping. We also try and give our members priority when dealing with any cat-related issues.

All this from just 10 a year. What are you waiting for? Click here to join us today!

Our neutering scheme is designed to help local cat owners on limited incomes to get their cats neutered, and we do this by contributing to the cost of the operation.

We offer vouchers worth 20 for a male cat, and 26 for a female cat, to help with the cost of neutering which can be up to 70.

To find out if you are eligible to apply for the scheme or to obtain a voucher, please click here to contact Mary, our neutering officer.

Please note - you should have your cat neutered when he or she is approximately 5 months old.
