In order to consolidate the internet presence of the Forest of Dean Cats Protection branch, we have decided to close down this site in June 2020, & operate through the main Cats Protection website.

Our Facebook page will remain open & we hope you will continue to support, follow & share…



Phone: 01594 841511


Donations are always welcome.

Please send your cheques made payable to “Forest of Dean Cats Protection (FOD CP is acceptable to the banks!) to:

The Treasurer
Grove House, Pine Tree Way, Viney Hill, Lydney GL15 4NT

Alternatively you can make a payment directly into our Bank Account which is at Barclays, Sort Code: 20-42-58. Account Number: 00166626.

Perhaps you would consider making a Standing Order to us for a monthly payment from your account? This would be very welcome as it enables us to predict our income and plan our outgoings more accurately.


We also welcome new members to join the 200+ local cat friends we have locally. As a member you will receive our quarterly newsletter, Paw Print, which will keep you informed about what we, as a Branch, are doing and how the cats in our care are faring. It also carries articles about cats in general, both amusing and informative.

Membership Rates are as follows:

Single £10.00,

Senior Citizen/Unwaged £7.00,

Family £15.00

To become a local member, send your subscription to:

The Membership Secretary, c/o The Forest Cat, 28a Newerne Street, Lydney GL15 5RF. Make your cheque or postal order payable to “FOD CP” and don’t forget to include your name, address, postcode and telephone number. It would also be very helpful if you could state whether or not you are a UK Tax Payer and whether you are content for us to claim back the tax you have paid on any donations you may give us now or in the future. We can, for instance, claim back Gift Aid on membership fees and, on 200 members, that comes to quite a tidy sum!
