What we do

Cats Protection is the largest feline welfare charity with over 260 branches and 29 adoption centres across the country with a head office is Sussex.

Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

As a national organisation Cats Protection has 3 main aims:

To encourage neutering of all cats and kittens
To rescue and re-home cats and kittens of all ages
To inform the public on cat care.

To maintain the above policies Cumnock & Doon Valley blood test for Feline Aids and Leukaemia, neuter, vaccinate, worm, deflea and microchip all animals in its care. We get involved in the trapping of feral cats and kittens, these felines will be given the same measure of care as domestic felines, but will be released after veterinary treatment, if not suitable for homing.If possible, we try to tame young feral kittens but this can be a long process and requires dedicated fosterers for this.

Cumnock and Doon Valley branch has helped thousands of felines since its inception in 2001. We have a small group of volunteers who help with the cats and as we are self sufficient we ask for donations and our Fund Raising Officer runs events as this is our only means of income, so if you would like to further help us, please visit the donate tab and any funds raised will come to this branch.

The branch is run by a committee consisting of:

Co-ordinator .............................Lorraine Douglas
Welfare Officer ..........................Lorraine Douglas
Homing Officer ..........................Jen Scott
Secretary ..................................Wilma Malcolm
Treasurer ..................................
Fundraising Officer.....................
