Cat Protection Society Op Shop To Close After 40+ Years

COVID-19 is set to claim yet another victim by the end of this month when the Cat Protection Society Op Shop on Enmore Road closes its doors for good.

“This decision was heartbreaking,” said Cat Protection Society CEO Kristina Vesak. “The Cat Protection’s Op Shop volunteers, customers and donors have made a profound and positive impact on feline welfare in NSW, and Sydney in particular. Their contribution is highly valued and appreciated

For more than four decades the Op Shop has been central to the Cat Protection Society’s fundraising and community presence. However, due to COVID-19 and the requisite social distancing measures there is a need to utilise the space previously reserved for the op-shop to house feline welfare staff and other retail products for cats.

“Our mission is to care for homeless cats and find loving responsible families for them. We will continue to do that and maintain COVID-safe operations by changing our processes and ensuring more space per person.

“Our shelter will be focused on adoptions (by appointment only) and 85 Enmore Road will become our retail store and welfare office.”

The Op-Shop commenced it’s closing down sale on June 11 but will remain open for the remainder of the month. So head in now and grab some goodies, while also helping contribute to the long term welfare of cats in care.
