About Us

Thank you for dropping into our website which we hope will provide you with lots of information about the Cats Protection organisation and how you could help us in the work we do at the West Lothian Branch.

On a national level, Cats Protection (formerly known as the Cats Protection League) have been rescuing and rehoming abandoned cats and kittens since 1927. We rehome over 60,000 cats per year and we have 29 purpose built shelters nationwide plus a further 260 voluntary branches, of which West Lothian is one. Cats Protection’s main aims are as follows:

  • To rescue stray and unwanted cats and kittens
  • To rehabilitate and re home them wherever possible
  • To encourage neutering of all cats and kittens not required for breeding purposes
  • To inform the public on the care of cats and kittens

    We hope you will take a few minutes to look around our website which focuses on our branch activities here in West Lothian but if you require more detailed information on the Cats Protection organisation in general, please visit the main website by clicking on the following link: www.cats.org.uk

    We receive a lot of enquiries from the public asking where our rescue centre is located or what our opening hours are. Please note that the West Lothian Branch is run purely by volunteers and, unfortunately, we do not have specific premises for the work we do. Cats available for adoption are looked after by our dedicated foster carers in their own homes until new owners can be found for them. We can often arrange a visit should you wish to see a particular cat but we ask that you contact us either by email or via our online form to enquire about this. Thank you.
