The Cats Protection League is a registered charity dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming stray cats and abandoned cats and kittens.

In addition to cat rescue and rehoming, Cats Protection League provides a range of services to the public, including our Feline Fix desexing program which provides financial assistance for desexing. We also offer discounted worm and flea treatments, help with veterinary costs, cat food, cage and trap hire. Click here to view our services for Canterbury cat owners.
