VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY NEEDED
Our Branch urgently needs volunteers to help with the daily care of our “Resident Cats” waiting for that forever home. Currently we have 5 Fosters (4 of which each have a pen) and 1 who shortly will have 9 pens because unfortunately 2 of our long term Fosterers are moving out of the area. We could just not move the 3 x pens, but that is just not an option with the number of cats and kittens desperately needing shelter, food and love – the numbers are currently unprecedented.
Therefore, we desperately need Fosterers. Either Home Fosterers or someone with a space in their garden for 1 x pen we currently have looking for a new home. Cost of litter, food, electricity and any incidental travelling is reimbursed by the Branch.
If you love cats and want to help in making a difference to the lives of the many unwanted family pets and strays why not consider becoming a Fosterer. There is a real sense of achievement when fostering a cat initially traumatised by its experiences in life – to that confident, loving and friendly cat you will ultimately see successfully rehomed.
If you are unable to Foster, have you a spare 2/3 hours to come to Bourton and help with the 9 pens? Yes, there are obviously some gutty issues i.e. litter trays and cleaning pens, but then there is the time you allow for cuddles, grooming and playing with the many cats/kittens all seeking your love.
Currently we have a team of ladies coming in 1 x morning a week so we are really looking for like minded ladies to come and pair up with those already here. I promise you it is tremendous fun and really rewarding when an “inmate” finds an owner. So if you are a driver and have a spare morning please contact Sandy (Branch Coordinator 01747 840621).

MANY THANKS FROM SANDY, ANDREW & THE MERE & GILLINGHAM CATS PROTECTION VOLUNTEERS.
We rescue and rehabilitate stray and unwanted cats of all ages across Dorset, parts of Somerset and Wiltshire.
Our aim is to find every cat their "forever home", as well as educating cat owners future and present on neutering and general cat care. We are entirely "not-for-profit" which means that our costs have to be covered by the generosity of donations, volunteers giving up their spare time and income generated from our shop.
