What we do

What We Do

Formed in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity.

Cats Protection rehomes and reunites 55,500 cats and kittens every year, through our network of over 250 voluntary run branches and 29 adoption centres.

The Grimsby and District Branch is staffed completely by unpaid volunteers who undertake all aspects of the branches work in their spare time, fitting this commitment in around their own work and family commitments.

We cover the following postcodes - DN31, DN32, DN33, DN34, DN35, DN36, DN37 and DN41.

We inform the public on the importance of having their cats neutered as well as providing additional information on what they can do to properly care for their cats at home.

We also work hard to rescue and rehome both cats and kittens. We are continuously searching for others to join our team to help us achieve these goals.

Rescue and Rehoming

We have 3 volunteer foster carers who care for our cats in their own home, until they find their forever home.

Due to space restrictions, we currently have a waiting list in place for cats requiring our care.


We encourage neutering to be done as early as possible. This is to control the feline population by reducing unwanted litters as well as to prevent fighting, straying, infections such as FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and cancers.

The standard age to neuter domestic, owned cats is four months old.

CP cats may be neutered after their first vaccination, if applicable. 

Feral cats are neutered at 3 months of age to reduce unwanted feral litters.

Cats Protection does offer financial support for those who are in receipt of benefits, state pension, a low household income or full time students for neutering.
