Paws Protect

For many victims of domestic abuse, fleeing violent relationships is made impossible, simply because they cannot bear to lose their pets.

That’s where Cats Protection comes in. Through Paws Protect, they take in and provide safe refuge for victims’ cats until their owners are in a position to reclaim them.

Since 2004, they have helped more than 400 cats and 225 families escape domestic abuse.

The areas they cover are London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Kent, Sussex and Surrey. In some cases we are able to signpost survivors from other areas to other, similar organisations.
