Sweep now has safe shelter and is no longer in a vulnerable position.  If you are interested in offering Sweep a home please contact us and we will pass you on to his carers.  Thank you to everyone who spread the word.  After this coming weekend Sweep was set to be homeless, but he now has a temporary home where he is safe and warm.

The lady who kindly took Sweep in after he was being bullied is having to move away and we are desperately trying to find a loving and safe home for him before she goes. Please click on the photograph to be taken to the Cats Protection website where you will find more details.

Please help if you can.

Tony, Lost in Stranraer


Tony was adopted so the owner doesn’t know his exact age, but he’s about 8-10 years old.  He’s grey, quite big, with a tiny white mark on his chest.

He went missing from Churchill Avenue in Stranraer on the night of Monday 29th July and his family are desperate to find him and have him home safe and sound.

If you’ve seen a cat like this around the area please contact us.


White Cat found in Newton Stewart

We don’t know his name, but we’ve called him ‘Albie’


Albie has been living in a cat lover’s garden for almost 5 months. He does not appear to have a home of his own as he still resides in the garden wanting to come indoors even in very wet weather and gets soaked to the skin. He was in the Queen Street area of Newton Stewart.

We think he is about 10 months old and is white with a medium length coat. He is not neutered.


If Albie could be your cat please contact us.

A Perfect Companion Cat

Suzie would love to have a home to call her own. She has been with us for over a year now and we are keen to find her a permanent and loving home. She would make a fantastic companion pet.

Suzie came to us along with four other cats, although she has lived with other cats we feel she is much happier as the only one. She is very confident with people, absolutely loves getting attention, being a lap-cat and would spend all day on your knee,she’s so friendly and very affectionate. She just adores human company. She is such a lovely companion to have around the house and would be great company for someone living alone.

She is known to have arthritis, at the moment she is not on any medication and leads a normal life. Most cats of her age would probably have the same condition. She is as healthy as any other 10 year old cat, probably fitter than most.

Whoever gives this little cat a chance of a home will be rewarded with the most loving and loyal pet. I will be very sad to say goodbye to her, but know she deserves more than the lounge of a foster home.

Think about Neutering sooner rather than later!

Whether you have a domestic pet or farm cats or ferals living in the area, neutering is important. An un-neutered tom will be more prone to fighting and more likely to spread disease through cat bites, neutering will not reduce a cats ability to hunt.  A large percentage of our funds go towards neutering. If we get to groups of cats before they have bred into colonies , the problem is much easier and cheaper to deal with. Our funds are not endless, so please if you notice cats breeding  on your farm, take action now.

The Stranraer District assisted in the neutering of an incredible 471 cats in Wigtownshire during 2011 and a similar number in 2012. The cost of this to our Branch has been enormous and in order for us to continue to offer assisted neutering, we are now asking for a £15 donation towards the neutering of each domestic cat.  If you have a pet cat and feel you are unable to afford to neuter it, our volunteers will be happy to discuss your situation.

Call 0845 371 2759

If the telephone is unmanned when you call, please leave your name and number on the answerphone and you will be called back as soon as possible. All our staff are volunteers, who give their time for free, please be patient if it takes a couple of days for us to get back to you.
