As a charity, we rely solely on the generosity and kindness of public donations to enable us to go on caring for cats and kittens.

Our work never stops, so your support is vital to us. From giving your time as a volunteer to leaving a gift in your will, or taking part in our weekly lottery, anything that you can do is much appreciated.

Alternatively, you can help us by giving a regular gift via Direct Debit, sponsoring or becoming a guardian of a cat or by making a one-off donation online today.
