THIS month, Cats Protection is celebrating the first anniversary of our Keighley shop.

The past year has been very successful and we would like to thank everyone for their support and generous donations.

We hope to see many more cat-lovers popping into our shop at 46 Towngate, where we have for sale a number of items including second-hand clothes, accessories, household goods, books and media, bric-a-brac and cat-related products.

Funds raised by the shop help us to continue our essential cat care work, both locally and further afield, including the neutering of domestic and feral cats, providing information for cat owners and re-homing unwanted or abandoned cats and kittens.

Cats Protection’s Keighley shop is part of a national network of over 110 shops, 250 volunteer-run branches and 36 adoption centres that together help around 200,000 cats and kittens each year. We always welcome new helpers so anyone interested in volunteering can contact us by e-mailing
