What we do

Our vision is to ensure that every cat is given the chance of a life where it will be treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Cats Protection has three simple and clear objectives to help cats:

Cats Protection Branches such as Caterham, Redhill & East Surrey are run by volunteers and cover their local areas. Cats for rehoming are cared for by fosterers, from their own homes. Branches fund-raise to support their work and welcome new volunteers.


About Caterham, Redhill & East Surrey Branch
