Amazon Wish List
Please take a look at our Amazon Wish List where items can be ordered and delivered to our branch that will enable the cats in our care to have a more comfortable stay while they wait to be adopted.
Call Gilli Salmons on 01458 223124 if you would like to join our local branch and become a member. We currently have around 200 members who receive a newsletter every 4 months, in return for a membership fee of £6 per year.
This is an A5 publication of around 35 pages, which details all our activities, future events and news of the cats in our care. Members are encouraged to contribute articles and pictures of their cats for inclusion in the newsletter.
Cat Pen Sponsorship
Hungry, homeless and alone, so many unwanted cats arrive at our branch. Sponsoring one of our cat pens is one of the best ways you can help, providing them with shelter, warmth, food, medical care and the love they need.
It's easy to become a sponsor right now, for as little as 19p a day. To get started, just choose the cat and pen you would like to sponsor from the gallery here: - www.cats.org.uk/glastwbr. Please use this link to sign up and Glastonbury and Wells branch will receive 100% of your sponsorship.
You will get close to some very special cats as a Cats Protection Sponsor. To start off your journey as a sponsor, you'll receive a fantastic welcome pack including a personalised certificate, your very first photo introducing you to the lovely cat you're currently helping to care for in your pen, a photo album to collect all your photos along the way and a window sticker!
And that's not all. Throughout your time as a Cats Protection Sponsor we will keep you posted with regular newsletters and new photos of the cat in your pen and will update you by email with stories, videos and photos on all the sponsorship news. You can even access your sponsor area on our website where you can see more information about the cats you're helping, including videos and wonderful photos of your current sponsor cat.
Thank you xx
