What we do
Truro & District Branch of Cats Protection was formed in 1984. We are a group of enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about cats and their welfare.
Fostering: Our Branch currently has 5 purpose built cat pens in the gardens of supporting volunteers. You can see one of these pens at the top of this page. These cat pens have been funded by the Branch and our volunteer fosterers give their time to care for cats whilst the Branch finds suitable loving homes. Other volunteers care for cats and kittens in specially adapted spare rooms in their homes. Find out more about fostering by following the link.
Homing: Volunteers make a home visit to make sure that each cat is being adopted into a suitable environment. We aim to make adopting a cat from us a pleasure that lasts the lifetime of the cat.
Feral cats: Truro Branch is lucky enough to have a volunteer with years of experience helping feral cats in Cornwall. Follow the link to find out more.
Neutering: We advocate the neutering of cats. Please follow the link to find out if you are eligible for financial assistance with neutering.
Fundraising: Our charity shop in Truro is our cornerstone. Please help us by shopping there and donating good quality items. Our volunteers organise fundraising events. All funds raised are spent wisely for the maximum benefit of the local cats we assist.
Volunteering: We are always keen to welcome new volunteers. There are lots of ways in which you can help. You'll enjoy being part of a team of like-minded people. Please follow this link to find out more about current volunteering vacancies.
