Our Branch is run by a small team of dedicated, unpaid volunteers who work very hard in their spare time to care for and find homes for unwanted cats and kittens throughout the Orkney Islands. Being a small branch, our cats are not based at a central location to visit - instead, all cats/kittens within our care are placed in foster homes pending a suitable home being found. The Branch is essentially self-sufficient, depending on funds raised locally to care for the cats we rescue; with our charity shop, in Stromness, providing the majority of our financial support.
It is our policy to never put a healthy cat to sleep and we believe that there is a new, loving home somewhere for each and every cat in our care. We have several cats who need rehoming as well as kittens looking for their forever home.
If you wish to adopt a cat or kitten, please do not hesitate to contact us on by telephone on 01856 771642 or by completing the online form. If you are looking for barn cats let us know. Please don't be put off by the answer machine that records our telephone calls as our volunteers work full-time. We do try to respond to all calls and queries as quickly as possible, however, this does tend to be in the evenings and at weekends but your patience and understanding is appreciated.
If you have an injured or sick cat, then please contact the SSCPA on 03000 999 999 who operate a 24-hour helpline or take the cat directly to any of the county's vets. Please DO NOT bring cats to the shop in Stromness as we have no facilities to deal with them at this location.
Thank you for considering giving a rescue cat a new home. Our cats have so much to offer and we appreciate you giving them a second or third chance to enjoy a happy life!
