What we do

Operating for over 70 years, The Cat Protection Society of Victoria is a not for profit animal welfare organisation committed to working with the community to ensure that every cat has the opportunity for a loving, safe and healthy home.

As a not for profit, our society relies entirely on the kindness of donations, legacies and memberships for our day-to-day existence and to ensure we can provide the highest levels of care to cats in need. We receive no government funding.

Located at 200 Elder Street, Greensborough Victoria, The Cat Protection Society includes an Adoption Shelter,
Veterinary Clinic and Retail Store.

Adoption Shelter:

Each year, over 2000 stray and abandoned cats seek refuge and are cared for at our Adoption Shelter. Our team of staff, foster carers and volunteers work with the goal that every one of these cats are re-homed and provided with their second chance for love, health and happiness. 

Veterinary Clinic:

The Cat Protection Society of Victoria is also home to a feline dedicated Vet Clinic that is open to the public by appointment only. Managed by a highly skilled and compassionate team, our Clinic is committed to offering cost effective procedures and subsidised de-sexing and microchipping programs to promote responsible cat ownership.

Retail Shop:

Our Retail Shop stocks everything your feline needs; from food and bedding, to flea and worm treatments, toys and collars. We also stock a great range of merchandise for our human, cat enthusiast customers. You can check out our range by visiting our online store (click here) or by popping into our Shop at the Shelter. All proceeds from our online store and retail shop directly contribute to looking after the cats in our care.

In addition to work at The Cat Protection Society of Victoria itself, our society also works closely to local community groups and local and state government bodies to promote responsible cat ownership and to help identify proactive solutions to tackle the issue of cat overpopulation.

I love my job. What gets me up in the morning is knowing that I am going to be working with a fantastic team that’s really driven and committed to providing the best possible care and discovering the best outcome for every animal that comes through our door
