The Cat Protection Society are a team of volunteers dedicated to providing stray cats in need with loving homes. From humble beginnings in 1958, the charity has expanded to consist of a range of feline care services including educating the public about socially and environmentally responsible cat care.
At their no-kill shelter in Newtown, the charity aims to reduce the number of stray cats on the streets. The Cat Protection Society are members of the International Society of Feline Medicine and society affiliate members of the International Society for Anthrozoology. Whether it takes a week, a month or even a year – cats stay here until they are adopted. The Cat Protection Society are committed to providing the purr-fect home for every one of their cats in their local community and across New South Wales.
