Minnie has really had a tough time living rough and she came into our care near to death. You can read her story and view her video here





We would like to say a huge thank you to all our supporters who voted for us in the Pets at Home Love To Give campaign. We are runners up and have received a fantastic £250 worth of lifelines which buys a lot of Felix!!

We would like to let our wonderful supporters know that you can build lifelines for us all year round if you are a VIP member and you select us as your Lifelines charity on as this helps to feed lots of hungry little mouths.

Huge thanks again to you and to Pets at Home for this fantastic initiative. xxx



Each week we receive donations from our supporters and members of the public, whether regular or one-off, for which we are so grateful.

As a purely voluntary charity, donations are our lifeblood and provide a number of essentials.

Your money goes towards food, neutering, flea treatments, worming treatments, drugs to treat ongoing conditions, dental treatments and emergency care.

The many donations we receive of food, blankets, toys and other feline equipment provide comfort, warmth, sustenance and play which are vital elements of any cat or kitten’s stay with us.

Your kindness and support means that we can continue to help the many cats in need of us and find safe and loving homes for them.



We would like to say a big thank you to Sue for giving up her time on the two sweltering May bank holiday Mondays to raise funds for the cats in our care. She raised around £170 which feeds a lot of hungry little mouths!
