We would like to thank you for your support of the Forth Valley Adoption Centre.
Contact us to find out more about volunteering at Forth Valley Adoption Centre. There are many different ways in which you can help. Our Volunteer Team Leader is Roslyn Mackay and you can contact her by email ForthValley.VTL@cats.org.uk
Running an adoption centre is an expensive business. Each cat that comes into our care costs on average £180, and the figure is often much higher than this. We charge £75 for every adoption, but this obviously does not cover the expenses of caring for the cats in our care.
All donations are gratefully welcome. To make a cheque donation please address all cheques to Cats Protection Forth Valley Adoption Centre. To make a cash donation, please do so at the centre, or you can donate online here.
Cat Food, Toys, etc-
If you would like to donate cat food then there are food bins located at B&M in Alloa (next to Morrison's) and also at our charity shop at 20-24 Kirk Wynd, Falkirk. Shop opening hours are Monday-Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 10am-4pm. And, of course, you can donate cat goods and cat food, treats etc at our Adoption Centre at Fishcross. We can take donations at the centre everyday between 0830am and 5pm - just ring the doorbell and someone will help.
PLEASE NOTE: The charity shop at the front of the adoption centre at Fishcross is now closed.
“What will happen to my cat after I am gone” is a common concern of many cat owners today. By signing up to our Guardian Scheme we can prioritise your cat on our waiting list, helping to bring them into our care should it be needed, as fast as possible.
We have set up an Amazon Wish List of items the cats need and would love. There are plenty of items to choose from, and we have tried to include a range of prices. All purchases are very much appreciated by us and the cats that will be able to enjoy them.
Help us shopping online-
What could be easier than doing your usual online shopping but through our EasyFundraising page, meaning your shopping helps us. It includes many popular sites like Amazon, Ebay, Argos, Sainsburys, etc so what could be simpler.
Play the cats protection lottery-
The cats protection lottery costs just £1 a week, and you will have 200 chances to win a weekly prize draw of between £50 and £1000! There is also a quarterly super draw raffle you will automatically be entered into- with a jackpot of £10000!
The Cat Magazine-
"The cat" is the official publication for Cats Protection, and subscription is just £15 a year. Each issue is packed with a variety of feline news, views and features. All subscriptions to the magazine help care for, rehome and neuter cats in the UK- while also helping to inform the public on feline issues.
Have some fun and do some fundraising-
There are lots of fun events you can get involved with that also offer an opportunity to fundraise for Cats Protection. Challenges and events are run in the local area and some are half way around the world, so let your imagination run wild! Run, swim, cycle, skydive, meet wild cats in the wild.... you name it, we've got it! Click here for more details. Just remember if you sign up to any events to say you want your funds to come to Forth Valley
Sponsor a pen
Over the course of a year, a pen could be a temporary home for a succession of needy cats and kittens. As a sponsor, you will know that you have helped these cats and kittens to have a secure place to rest and recover from their traumas before being re-homed. It's easy to become a sponsor right now, for as little as 19p a day. You'll hear their stories. See their pictures. You'll feel like these special cats are a part of your life.
