If you are based in West Norfolk and are thinking about rehoming your cat, we’re here to help. You can find detailed advice on this here, or, if you would prefer more tailored support, please email us with details and how best to contact you.

When times are hard, we understand people may have worries about ongoing food costs for their beloved cats.
