Special Appeal
ELSA  is a stunning Calico cat of approx 2 years, brought in by RSPCA Inspectors from an owner who asked for our help, as she had taken on too many cats and could no longer cope.
Most of the cats were kittens who were rehomed quite quickly, but Elsa has been with us for a long time now because she is somewhat wary of strangers.
Despite being very scared and hissy at first, with much TLC from her fosterer she has come a long way, and although she is still a bit reticent with people she doesn't know, she can now be stroked and enjoy a fuss - especially if you have a few treats in your hand.......!
ELSA needs an experienced cat home with older children (if any) as they will need to understand her sensitive nature and realise that it's not her fault - she has just had a bad start in life, but we have promised her that things will get better.
She needs someone who will help her continue to gain confidence by being very
patient with her, giving her a bit of space and a lot of love.
Can you make Elsa feel loved, safe and at home? Call 07823 550886
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.

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.
