Cat Protection Society

Cat Protection is a registered charity that has been caring for cats since 1958. It started as a small group of volunteers concerned about the plight of street cats and has grown into a comprehensive feline welfare organisation incorporating a shelter which has cats and kittens for adoption; community outreach programs such as discount desexing and vaccination; education and information resources; and advocacy and policy work. Cat Protection depends on donations and bequests to do its work.

Cat Protection’s website has a wealth of information about cat health, welfare and wellbeing. Information on desexing and cat welfare has been translated into five community languages: Korean; Hindi, Simplified Chinese; Vietnamese; and Arabic. There are also videos that include an Auslan interpreter. 

The Good Neighbour Project is the umbrella for Cat Protection’s responsible cat ownership initiatives. It includes resources for cat owners such as factsheets on how to create cat-proof fencing; how to keep indoor cats happy and healthy; a video about the health and welfare benefits of early-age desexing; as well as community events and programs such as discounted desexing and vaccination. 

A CPD-points accredited training package on early-age desexing for veterinarians is available free of charge on Cat Protection’s website for people who work with cats:

Cat Protection is a member of ISFM and is proud to support the University of Sydney’s School of Veterinary Science, donating more than $200,000 for feline infectious disease research in recent years.
