Description of the charities activities and outcomes
Working in a One Welfare framework, Cat Protection offers best-practice sheltering to homeless cats and kittens, providing all required veterinary and rehabilitation services before adopting them into loving and responsible homes. In the year we took in and found permanent homes for almost 900 felines and additionally supported low-income cat owners with discounted feline desexing (almost 2,000 cats) and F3 vaccinations (more than 1,200 cats). We provide free information and education programs to cat owners and people working with cats; support and participate in research into feline infectious diseases and welfare; and contribute to policy and development in the companion animal sector, particularly in the area of responsible cat ownership. For more information on programs and support for the general public see www.catprotection.org.au and for professionals working with cats see www.catcare.org.au
