On May 11th 2019, 4 of our intrepid volunteers will brave the largest Zipslide in Europe to celebrate Gwent Branch's 40th Birthday and to raise funds for our many cats and kittens in care. Please donate if you can.
Our current appeal on 21/1/19 is for lovely Skippy, found with an horrific injury and suffering major blood loss. Please read her story in the link below ..
***Operation successfully completed and our little girl is recovering well
Our current appeal 14/9/18 is to raise funds for Hoppy, a 6 week old kitten with an open leg fracture.
Today our volunteers were called out to a location to save an injured kitten (approximately only 6 weeks old).When they got to the scene, they found this little girl with an extremely nasty open wound with broken bone protruding. Despite her pain and circumstance this little lady was still very much mobile and incredibly friendly and affectionate.
She has been rushed to our emergency veterinary centre and will need to have her leg amputated.
As a branch we are still in the throws of ‘kitten season’ which are already consuming are large portion of our funds and resources, along with the steady influx of older, stray and injured cats.
This appeal is to help raise funds for Hoppy’s operation and after care. Any monies raised which exceed this amount will be used to fund other cats and kittens under the care of Gwent Cats Protection branch.
If you can, please make a donation, if you are unable to donate, please share this appeal to help us reach our goal. Thank you.

In addition, in August 2016 our shop in Abergavenny was flooded and we appealed for help. The shop suffered severe damage from the rooms above it and was closed for several weeks. As the shop is a major funding source, we struggled to meet the bills without it's income. On top of this, during July, we had extortionate vet bills to pay as a result of numerous litters of sick kittens & cats from multi cat households and abandoned litters.
We also had a major clean up to do at the shop and replacement of equipment once the repairs were completed.
