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…


We want people to support our objective of making every cat is treated with kindness and understanding of its needs Would you like to help?Van

We URGENTLY need more volunteers to share the workload and to continue to make a very real difference to the quality of life of cats in the Forest of Dean. Even if you can only spare a couple of hours per month, this could help to save a cat one of its nine lives.

You could help with:-

  • Homing Visits
  • Working a half day in our shop in Lydney
  • Creative skills to make items to sell in the shop
  • Fostering cats – this must be a long term commitment
  • Fund-raising.
  • Liaising with local newspapers
  • And many other tasks

Offer us your particular talent and, providing it’s legal, we’ll find a way of using it to help the cats!

And for those who may not be able to help us physically, donations are always welcome.

Please send your cheques made payable to “Forest of Dean Cats Protection” to:
