Building a future for Cats
“Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs”. For nearly one hundred years, the Cats Protection League has led the way among British animal charities with its selfless and relentless commitment to the welfare of cats and kittens.
Now known simply as Cats Protection, it is the UK’s largest feline welfare charity. In the last 90 years, this tremendous charity has rehomed over 1.5 million cats and kittens and championed the rights of cats. But where did it all begin?During the 1920s, cats were frequently not seen as the companion animals they are today today – instead of much-loved pets, they were often considered as nothing more than pests. Concern was expressed at the ignorance of many people regarding the needs of the domestic cat. In an attempt to raise the status of cats, a group of like-minded people gathered together at Caxton Hall in London. They formed the Cats Protection League.
Since its humble beginnings, the dedication and commitment of the CPL’s volunteers and staff has never waned. Surviving war and recession and defying the odds to help as many cats as possible, their aim remains the same as it did in 1927.
