We are Open to the public by appointment Monday to Saturday and to casual visitors during our opening hours Monday to Friday. If you would like to get in touch with us then please email us, contact us on our Facebook page or phone the center between 9am and 12pm. We can book appointments to visit our cats or to drop off any cats that you may want us to rehome.
The charity shop is now open from 10-12 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. At present we are only able to accept payment by cash.
In 1925 Mrs Margaret Payne set up a small cat’s shelter to help the stray cats of Ipswich and surrounding areas. This grew over the years and her daughter, Mrs Daphne Parmenter, continued her mother’s hard work to establish the society as it is today.
We are based at 181 Cauldwell Hall Road, Ipswich, where we house stray cats and re-home them.
We also provide veterinary care and run a clinic for all animals whose owners are in receipt of state benefits.
Please take time to see how you can support us. We are a small local and independent charity, that relies solely on public donations, legacies and sales of items in our shop. We receive no government aid and we are no affiliated with any national charity. If you feel that you are able to give a cat a loving home, please contact us.
Supporting Ipswich & District Animal Welfare Centre.
We always welcome donations of cat food, blankets, cat toys and baskets, and any items for our charity shop. If you are able, please buy/sell our Christmas raffle tickets or hold a cake sale, boot sale or coffee morning.
