WELCOME TO BEXLEY AND DISTRICT BRANCH 01322 611911
On 14th June, we had a visit from Howbury Tumblers. For their citizenship award, they had to help others and the children and parents collected cat food and other items to donate to us. The family of 3 loved the extra attention and the children had impeccable manners and behaviour - a credit to their parents and teachers!
|We are a small, but busy group with 19 pens, run entirely by volunteers. We always welcome new friends to socialise the cats, donate food, bedding, scratching posts etc., or even give a gift of money however small or large. We would like to thank everyone, for donating food/litter/toys, for donations of money, giving goods for us to sell, and to all our wonderful socialisers who we could not do without. We really do appreciate this extra help. A very big thank you.
|OUR HOMING STATISTICS
We have approximately 30 cats in our care at any one time and we operate a waiting list for any cats that we may not be able to take in immediately. Due to the hard work of all our staff and volunteers we have achieved: -
|During August 2018 we homed: 11 Cats and 15 Kittens
In 2017 we homed a total of 337 cats and kittens
|Last fundraising event :
||Shoulder of Mutton Green : £220.84 - A stunning amount!! Well done to all!
A very generous sum of over £900 was donated to the Branch in memory of Carole Terry, a life member and long time supporter of Bexley & District Branch. Thank you to all her family and friends. We will all miss her.
We have a number of older cats needing loving home! Please do not overlook them as they have so much to give, and do not deserve to be passed over and left in a pen for many months.
