Deeside Branch of Cats Protection
Some exciting news will be coming in the following weeks of a special event we will be holding. So watch this space.
If you are interested in fundraising please get in touch as we would love to hear from you, And also if you have any idea's.
Our branch is one of the smallest Cats Protection branches around but covers one of the largest areas in the UK. Deeside Branch is run solely by dedicated volunteers who use their spare time to help our feline friends at no benefit to themselves. We may be small but we have a mighty impact on our area.
We would like to remind everyone that everyone here at Deeside Cats Protection are purely volunteers. We work tirelessly in our spare time to help our feline friends but we are unpaid and do have other commitments i.e. work and family. Please be assured that any messages you leave with us will be received and we will get back to you when our busy lives give us the time to do so. We care deeply about what we do, and will do our very best to answer all messages as soon as we are able.
Please note You will need to have a home visit done by the branch before you can adopt a cat. Its nothing to worry about. If you are in RENTED accommodation we will need to see a letter from the landlord or local authorities to give permission to have a cat. Without this we will not be able to proceed until this has been done.
Please also note TNR of ferals....ALL ferals who are trapped, neutered and released back to site will be EAR TIPPED as per cp policy. There are no special circumstances this must be done.

Deeside Branch - terms and conditions:
Not all branches offer the same terms and conditions. If you have been checked and approved (Home Visit) to home one of our cats/kittens from Deeside, please be aware that only our terms and conditions apply, regardless of whether another branch has a different set of T's & C's.
Deeside branch require £50.00 per cat or kitten. This is to help us with the cost of your cat's/kitten's min. first vaccine, neutering and flea and worming treatments. On average it costs the branch £150.00 to have of this done, and gives you the security of knowing a cat/kitten from us has been thoroughly health checked.
We also offer 4 weeks free insurance with the well known insurance provider Petplan. After this period you have the option to continue with Petplan if you wish.
On the subject of vaccination. We provide the first vacc. and then its up to the owner to get the second one administered. The cost of this is on the owner, not the branch. At the point of adoption this is explained verbally and is pointed out in the vaccination card you are provided with.
In some cases if a cat has been in our care for a period of time, we may have had it fully vaccinated upon adoption. Please note if this is the case you will be informed. As before once the cat has been adopted the yearly booster is to be paid for by the owner.
