We are here for every cat to keep them happy, healthy and safe.


Cats Protection Glasgow Branch rescues and re-homes over 300 cats each year, and provides assistance with neutering costs for over 450 cats and kittens annually. The branch is self-funding and has to raise over £50,000 a year to provide food, shelter and vet care to the cats in our care. Our branch is run solely by volunteers.

It is our policy never to put a healthy cat to sleep and we believe that there is a new, loving home somewhere for each and every cat in our care.

Please consider making a donation to help the cats in our care. Or perhaps you would like to sponsor one of our long-term cats in care further details below ...


If you are currently unable to adopt a cat or are looking for an ideal gift for a loved one then perhaps you would like to sponsor one of these long-term residents? For £15 you can sponsor one of our very deserving cats for a year, contributing towards his or her ongoing medical expenses. You will receive a welcome pack with a photo of the cat you are sponsoring and regular updates on how he or she is getting on throughout the year.

If you would like to sponsor one (or more!) of them then please get in contact with the branch. You can do this via the form on the 'Contact Us' webpage on the branch website ( or give us a phone on 0345 371 2722 and leave a message on the answerphone asking for a 'sponsor a cat' application form (don't forget to tell us your name and address if you phone). We will post a sponsorship form out to you as soon as we can. Alternatively, you can download the Sponsor a Cat form (, print it out, fill it in and post it to our address (see the 'Contact Us' webpage again for this). Thank you.


Sponsor cat Archie  (shown above on our banner) came into the Glasgow Branch on the 28th January 2017. Archie is black and grey in colouring with a deformed back paw.

Archie had ripped the skin off the top of his head, his eyes were all swollen and looked in a very sorry state.  He was first seen by a vet on the 3rd February 2017, since then Archie has been on steroids, antibiotics and has been living with a protective collar ‘cone’ on for almost 7 months because he has very itchy dry skin manly on the right hand side of his face.

Numerous tests found that Archie has a deep skin allergy which will be manage by being on medication for the rest of his life. Archie’s skin has to be shampooed and cleaned three times a week and eye drops administered. Archie has needed a lot of care to help him keep well. This has not been an easy take as Archie was not used to being handled, he wasn’t even litter trained when he came in. However over time Archie grew fond of this care and attention and it was this appreciative nature that made his fosterer fall in love with him and on the 6th May 2017, Archie was adopted by his fosterer and found his forever home.

Update from owner:

Archie had been doing so well enjoying outdoor life, sharing his house with five other cats. Then Archie decided to attack his face again. The CP Glasgow Branch decided we need to give Archie a better quality of life so he has recently been referred to the Dermatology Referral Service Ltd in Glasgow.  Archie will get further allergy tests/investigations done whilst under anaesthetic so see if his allergy can be determined.
