op shop

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cat Protection Op Shop is currently closed and not accepting new donations. Please hold on to your donations if you’re able to, we would love to receive them when we reopen!

Cat Protection would like to thank all our amazing volunteers for their dedicated hard work throughout the year. Thank you, we couldn’t have such a great Op Shop without you!

For more than 40 years the Cat Protection Society Op Shop has been raising funds for cat welfare programs. Thank you to all our donors, customers and volunteers for your life-saving efforts!


The Cat Protection Op Shop sells a range of quality and quirky second-hand items including: men’s and women’s fashion and accessories; homewares; collectables; haberdashery; entertainment; and more.

The shop is conveniently located at 85 Enmore Road – 9 doors down from our office and adoption centre – and is staffed entirely by friendly, feline-loving volunteers, so once we have paid the rent and utilities all profits from the Op Shop go directly to our work in feline welfare and you can feel even better about shopping at Cat Protection. Our opening hours are:

Monday – Saturday 10:00am – 4:00pm
Sunday 10:30am – 3:00pm
Public Holidays Closed


Please note our hours are subject to volunteer availability. If you would like to donate to the Op Shop, please read our Donation Policy to ensure we can accept and sell your thoughtful gift. Please note that as a small store we do have very limited storage space, if you have a large donation please call us on 02 9519 7201 or email opshop@catprotection.org.au to arrange a suitable delivery time.

Op Shop volunteers receive professional on the job retail training and may have the option to undertake some industry related courses. For more information on volunteering with Cat Protection or to complete an Op Shop volunteer application, click here.

For more than 3 decades one very kind Cat Protection member has made hand-knitted cat toys for the cats in our adoption centre. If you have any clean, unwanted stockings, pantyhose or knee highs, they can be left at the Cat Protection Op Shop or our office so we can continue this wonderful and caring tradition.
