2016 Fundraising and re-homing
We raised a whopping £7,524 last year with fundraising events. Majority of that money was spent on paying our ever increasing vet bill and the rest was spent on medication, flea and worming products, food and cat litter.
We have successfully re-homed 101 cats this year and a few more reserved that will be going to their forever homes in the next few days .
The best new years news ever!!!!!!
Our beautiful Keely who has been with us 2 1/2 years has finally got her purrfect furever home! We are so pleased for her, she did her mummy duties & was overlooked for so long but her new mummy fell for her & she so deserves it! Live a long & happy life sweet girl.
FABULOUS CHRISTMAS DONATIONS
A big SHOUT OUT to our fab supporters ‘The Flowerdays’. Instead of buying each other Christmas gifts this year they decided to donate the money for much needed supplies at the rescue . To their lovely neighbour who sadly lost their beautiful Fluffy for donating his blankets to help keep our kitties warm, Fluffy would be so proud. Another shout out to the lovely Jan for the big box of dreamies & lovely Pam for her generous donation. We really do have the best supporters.
Big thank you from Tommy & all the other rescue kitties to Uncle Steve Holmes & Uncle David and Julie Thewliss for making generous donations to help towards our vet bill over what has been a very busy vet period! Also thanks to Sylvia & Ray who continue to send a monthly donation to help the kitties.
CADENCE FINDS A HOME!
Some fantastic news. The lovely Cadence finally got her purrfect furever home yesterday after a year & a half at the rescue! We are over the moon for her after been overlooked for so long. Have a long & happy life Cadence.
PAWPRINTS TO THE RESCUE!!!
These poor babies were rescued from a house eviction a couple of weeks ago. There are 5 in total, all full of cat flu & in a horrible state. So far two of them have spent over a week at the vets which puts a big strain on our already huge vet bill but we will do everything we can to get them well & into loving homes. We have named them (Saint) Nick, Noel, Santa, Ivy & Tinsel who is still at the vets . We will keep you updated on their progress.
