** Wednesday August 8th is International Cat Day ***
This event, celebrated worldwide, is a fun way for people to celebrate their bond with cats and to advocate for their welfare. Why not send your cat selfie to our Facebook page (and give us a "like" while you're there). You could make a donation or volunteer to help? We know lots of people don't have much spare time, so what about volunteering for a one off event? We're very short of volunteers for our last carboot of the year on Sunday Aug 19th, and we need a few more people for our rehoming day / Xmas fair on Sat Nov 3rd. You can make a difference!
Welcome to Ipswich Cats Protection - a branch run entirely by volunteers
Areas covered: Ipswich branch covers the post code areas IP1 - IP5 & IP7 - IP11.
Fund raising: We fund raise regularly, both to raise much needed funds for the cats and to raise the profile of the branch. We run a Christmas fete in Nov/Dec, charity nights and car boot sales. And we could do so much more with more volunteers.
We have our own charity shop- reopening in a new town centre location on Queen Street IP1 on Aug 31st. Do please come and visit us Mon to Sat 9am to 5pm (3pm close on Fridays).
All our members receive newsletter updates on the cats, to which they are welcome to contribute articles/photos etc. Annual membership is only £5.00 per year. Details from
The Cats: We do request a set fee of £55 for every cat or kitten. Cats Protection asks adopters for this fee when rehoming a cat. If you feel able to make a donation on top of this fee that would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard, and thank you for your decision to rehome a CP cat. For this fee, you will get a pet that is:
microchipped, vaccinated, spayed or neutered if needed and treated for fleas / worms.
Our cats are always checked over by a vet before homing, and come with one months free pet insurance. See the homing page for further details of all we do for our cats, and the attendant costs. Please note we will home to rented accomodation only on receipt of your landlords written permission.
