CATS IN NEED OF A RESCUE SPACE

IMPORTANT COVID-19 NOTICE

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, visiting the cats at our shelter is closed to visitors without appointment. Visitors may visit our onsite shop or drop in donations without appointment.

If you are looking to rehome a cat, we are conducting Skype / Facetime / WhatsApp home checks – call us on 01992626110 to register. After your home check, one of our staff will invite you to a rehoming page on Facebook where you will be able to see photos and videos of cats we think will suit your situation.

As a charity, without support, we will struggle to survive. Please help us by donating.

Owned Cats

If you need to surrender your cat into our care call us on 01992 626110. Please be aware that we have a waiting list and cannot take a cat at short notice. The earlier you contact us the better. For example: if you have an elderly relative going into a care home, please do not wait until moving day to call us as we will not be able to help. Contact us as soon as you know it might be a possibility. If circumstances change, you can always remove your cat from our waiting list. Our waiting list can be up to 3 months!

Stray Cats

If you suspect a cat is a stray, please call us on 01992 626110.

Before reporting to us please do the following:

  • If the cat is friendly, take the cat to a vet to be scanned for a microchip. If it is chipped, the vets will help reunite the cat.
  • If the cat isn’t microchipped, then attach a paper collar with your phone number on stating the location too.

If none of the above work, then please do the following:

  • Call us to add to our waiting list. We will need your address and contact details as well as any detail about the cat you can give us. Our waiting list can be up to 3 months!
  • Set up a regular feeding pattern – we will not be able to help trap a cat if we can’t find them.
  • Try and establish trust with the cat.

Emergencies

If you find a stray cat which looks ill or injured, please call us immediately. If we are able to, we will take the cat and ensure it gets the treatment it needs.

You can also take the cat to a vet. They will treat the cat and then transfer it to a rescue centre.

PLEASE DO NOT TURN UP AT THE SHELTER WITH A CAT WITHOUT HAVING CONTACTED US FIRST. WE WILL NOT HAVE SPACE.
