Time ‘fur’ celebration as charity turns 90
15th May 2017

A charity that has helped an estimated four-and-a-half million cats over the past nine decades is celebrating a milestone birthday this year.
 
Cats Protection turned 90 in May and is marking the occasion by sharing some of its key animal welfare achievements from down the years.
 
The charity’s welfare work has ranged from lobbying for changes to animal welfare laws to opening the UK’s largest cat adoption centre.
 
Peter Hepburn, Cats Protection’s chief executive, said: “We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings in 1927, from a time when cats were regarded as pests to the more compassionate society we live in today. Cats Protection’s work over those years has played a major role in these changes in society.
 
“This is the ideal opportunity to celebrate the achievements we have made over the years and to thank everyone, including our dedicated volunteers, supporters and staff, for all they’ve done to further feline welfare in the UK.
 
“The people in the charity over those 90 years have made this superb organisation what it is today and we look forward to taking that heritage forward to help the cats who need us in the years to come.”
 
Since the late 1960s the charity has been running neutering programmes and now runs the largest single-species neutering programme in the world.
 
The charity also gives educational talks to groups including school pupils, Girl Guides, Scouts and adult community groups.
