Here at Clarendon House we work closely with our local Cats Protection Branch. Vets and nurses visit the adoption centre in Chelmsford once a week to treat, vaccinate and health check cats and kittens that are awaiting adoption. We also support the Cat Protections philosophy of early neutering and carry out the procedures at our Galleywood surgery. Early neutering provides health benefits to the cats and also helps to control the feline population. We also have several pets registered with us that have ongoing clinical conditions and are being supported in their new home by the Cats Protection.
