Services For Cat Owners

In addition to rescuing and rehoming cats, Cats Protection League provides a range of services to the public, including our Feline Fix desexing program which provides financial assistance for having your cat desexed. We are also able to offer discounted worm and flea treatments for Community Services Card holders, help with emergency veterinary fees, cat food, cat cage and cat trap hire.

To access any of these services you can call our office (03 376 6094), drop in, email ( or leave a message via our Facebook page.

Flea and Worm Treatments
Low cost flea and worm treatments can be purchased from the CPL office for $4 for a single flea treatment and $4 for two worming tablets.  Please note that these are only sold during the week and not at weekends.  You will need to be a Community Services Card holder to purchase these.

Cat Food
Thanks to many generous donations we are often able to help with cat food for those in need. We can also provide food if you have found a stray, while you look for its owner, or while it is on our wait list to come in if an owner has not been found.

Help With Veterinary Bills
If you find yourself facing an unexpected veterinary bill, we may be able to help.  Please do not rely on this service as your regular means to pay a vet, it is for people in dire need.  We wish we could help everyone but as a charity we must be realistic.  Contact us to discuss your situation and needs.

Cat Cage and Trap Hire
If you need a cage to take your cat to the vet, CPL can help. We can also help to provide traps for stray or difficult to catch cats and crates for cats which may need to be confined.

Carry cages can be borrowed for free, a small donation is appreciated.
Cat traps can be hired for $25, $20 of which is refunded upon return of the clean trap.
Cat crates can be hired for $30, $20 of which is refunded upon return of the crate.

To avoid disappointment, please ring our office on 03 376 6094 before popping in to hire a trap as our available traps may all be in use.
