Kate Mulvany was kind enough to share her experience of Cat Protection saying, “They take such care of the cats and they really make sure the cats go to the right owners. It’s a beautiful place to spend time with a lot of felines that are looking for some love.”
Thanks Kate and lots of kitty cuddles for Bowie and Heisenberg!Read more

NOTICE OF NOMINATIONS FOR APPOINTED DIRECTORS
CAT PROTECTION SOCIETY OF NSW INC
AGM 7 NOVEMBER 2015
After a few setbacks during the past financial year, Cat Protection is pleased to report a number of accomplishments to end the 2014-15 financial year on a high note.
Adoption centre reopens
Repairs and renovations to our adoption centre were completed and the adult cats have returned to 103 Enmore Road. Once again, we are able to accept surrenders and continue to find loving homes for cats in need … because every cat deserves a loving and responsible home.
We know that people are busy and traffic is congested, so coming
to Newtown isn’t appealing to everyone (but that said, when you’re
choosing a friend for life, a few hours of your time is a good investment!).
You may be aware that the NSW Parliament has established a Joint Select Committee to inquire into and report on companion animal breeding practices in NSW, in particular issues around limits to the number of animals allowed to be kept by breeders, a breeders’ licensing system and sales of dogs and cats in pet shops. The Committee is calling for public submissions; details on the terms of reference and how to make a submission can be found at the NSW Parliament website.Read more
