Can you help me?
They’ve called me Holly because I came to stay here just before Christmas. 
I'm not very old, only a few months and I used to live with some other cats, just us on our own, and some kind humans used to put food out for us.
When I was rescued I was so frightened, no more cats for company just humans. They’ve been really nice to me but I’m so scared as I’ve been used to living outside, and wasn’t used to being touched and picked up.
I’m a lot better than I was and am getting used to it a bit more, but I still like to hide away sometimes.
They have said I can go and live in a house eventually but I need someone special to help me get ready, someone who can spend some time with me and show me that it’s not so scary living with humans.
Holly needs someone who can foster her in their home on a temporary basis. She needs a lot of TLC in a quiet environment with no other pets, to get her used to everyday noises and life in a home environment.
Our branch will provide support and everything she needs during her time with you. If you have that ‘special something’ then Holly needs you to help her.
Please give us a call if you think you can help 07823 550886.

  • More and more pets are returning home due to having been microchipped, months and even years after going missing or living stray.
  • It is now illegal in England to own a dog without a  microchip. Owners who do not comply could face fines of up to £500.
  • Microchipping costs only a few pounds, is virtually painless and is done in seconds.

Dogs & Rabbits
As we don't yet have an animal centre, most of our dogs & rabbits are cared for by our colleagues at Chesterfield Branch.

All our cats are cared for temporarily by volunteer fosterers, in their homes in the Barnsley area, until a forever home becomes available.
Our cats are not free, there's a fixed donation to cover pre-adoption costs.
Have a look at our feline beauties to see who you'd like to give a loving forever home.

If you own a cat (dog,rabbit, guinea pig or other small pet), male or female, it is your responsibility to have him or her neutered as soon as your vet advises it is appropriate, and we cannot stress enough the importance of doing this.
Please don't add to the homeless crisis.

Owners have a legal responsibilty to meet all of their animals' needs under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

Help change the law on air gun ownership in England and Wales
Cats Protection has launched an online campaign to urge the government to bring in air gun licensing laws across England & Wales. This is becoming more and more of a problem in our area with many animals losing limbs/eyes for absolutely no reason.
Please help change this by signing the petition.
