Welcome to Mere & Gillingham (Dorset) Cats Protection

We rescue and rehabilitate stray and unwanted cats of all ages across Dorset, parts of Somerset and Wiltshire. Our aim is to find every cat their "forever home", as well as educating cat owners future and present on neutering and general cat care. We are entirely not-for-profit which means that our costs have to be covered by the generosity of donations, volunteers giving up their spare time and income generated from our shop.
