About The Sheffield Cats Shelter

The Shelter has been operating for over 125 years, evolving and adapting to changing social issues. These include converting the shelter into open rooms, not cages, for our cats to socialise in and developing our volunteering scheme to better support those with disabilities and special needs.

Our Mission

With an estimated nine million stray cats in the UK, the number of strays roaming the UK has reached a critical level.

Because of this it’s our mission to make sure that every cat that needs a home, finds a home.

We shelter our rescues in rooms, not cages, to let them adjust to living in a home-like environment where they are not only safe, but have the space and facilities to express normal cat behaviour. We provide all of our cats with lots of comfy beds, cat trees and scratch posts, toys, catnip, quality food and exceptional care. We aim to keep them as happy and fulfilled as possible until they find their forever home.

We also neuter, vaccinate, and microchip every cat that comes to us. This means that our cats are safe from unwanted pregnancies, and cat-lovers can adopt from us in confidence.

With your help we can make sure that cats throughout Sheffield and surrounding areas are cared for and protected, and that they never have to be scared or hungry again.

Please consider making a donation to our rescue to help us continue the work that we do.
