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.

New Missing & Found Help
We have a new Missing and Found pet online form service, whereby we will feature your missing or found pets, and try to actively help animals be reunited with their owners.
Please be sure to read and act on our advice first.

Branch Coverage

  • 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.

Food Donation Boxes

'Non clumping' cat litter & good quality kitten food needed urgently
We're desperate for both these crucial donations.
We have food donation boxes at Tesco Stairfoot, Tesco Penistone, Morrisons Barnsley and Cookes Pet Store, Barnsley.
Please help if you can.
Donation Station
Cookes Pet Supplies 
Wakefield Rd, Barnsley, S71 1NG
Cookes Pet Supplies have generously offered to become a 'Donation Station' for us.
This means that you can collect donation sacks from them, fill with your donations (either for our charity shop or with items of clean cat bedding, bowls, cat toys, non clumping litter etc for our cats in foster homes) and then return them to Cookes for us to collect.
They also have a food collection box where you may donate cat food. We always need quality kitten food especially.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
