We are part of Cats Protection, the UK's leading feline welfare charity.Gildersome is the charity's new pilot centre, run on dedicated volunteer assistance. We run two centres. The first takes in cats and strays not yet fit for homing and cares for them until they are. The second centre houses the cats who are fit to home until they find their new forever homes. Our goals -
- Plans to rehome 500 cats per year
- Increase rehoming in the area by 68%
- Information and advice on cat welfare and ownership to the local community
- Promotion of our education programme giving fun talks about pet ownership
We have 12 cat pens where we can house up to 24 cats who are ready to find their loving new homes.
All cats at the centre are vaccinated, microchipped, neutered (age dependant) and socialised and can be seen by their new owners in an easy to reach, visible and modern environment.
