***Important notice to all our supporters - 21-March-2020***
In light of the continuing Coronavirus crisis, Cats Protection has taken the difficult decision to cease all rehoming for the time being. This unfortunately includes our own little branch. At this time we are also unable to take any more cats into our care other than in exceptional circumstances. If you have an emergency situation and you think you need to rehome your cat please contact Cats Protection Headquarters on 03000 12 12 12 or email@example.com For our local followers, we are still able to post online notices for any lost or found cats on our branch’s website and our branch's Facebook page, and we are still available for advice by telephone, through our 'contact us' page or through Facebook messenger. We hope that you and all your loved ones stay safe and we send each and every one of you our very best wishes at this difficult time.
Our branch has been in operation from the 1980s. We cover the area from Halland to Saltdean. We presently operate 3 shelters located at:
•Seaford x 2
On average, cats remain in our care for approximately 4 to 6 weeks before they are re-homed. During a year we re-home just under 200 cats and kittens. During the time they are with us they require food, heat pads, cat litter, veterinary care. Our total outgoings for rescue, re-homing and neutering is aproximately £17,000 per year but this is not an exhaustive list of expenses. We have many fundraising activities but these do not keep pace with our expenditure.
These shelters are run by a commited group of hard working volunteers many of whom combine this role with their full time employment. This is a very fulfilling role giving great job satisfaction particulary when you see a happy outcome to a sad, hopeless case.
