The Forest Cat Shop


Trading hours will be Tuesday to Saturday 9am-5pm

Due to the volume of donations anticipated & the need to quarantine these for 72 hours before sorting them, we will run an appointment only drop off between 9-10am & 4-5pm on the days we are open.

Donations need to be in sealed bags, please. Call the shop to make your appointment. We look forward to welcoming you all back!

Our shop opened at 28a Newerne Street, Lydney in 2001 & is staffed by a wonderful band volunteers, currently led by our assistant manageress. Without the time & effort so generously donated by our volunteers, we could not exist! The shop generates a significant income which helps to defray the considerable expenses involved in helping Forest cats. Our main expenses are, inevitably, incurred for veterinary care for the cats in our care.

Additionally we have to pay for quantities of tinned cat food & biscuits, cat litter & for transporting cats to & from the vets. Due to a generous legacy, we were able to purchase our own van in 2007 which you may see out & about.

We also run regular neutering campaigns to enable those less well off to have their cats neutered free of charge or at a vastly reduced rate.

New volunteers & customers are always welcome, especially those bringing us good quality items to sell!
