Support us

There are lots of ways that you can support us.

Two cats
Donations
It costs lots of money each day to keep a cat at one of our fosterer's homes - in addition to all the basics such as food, litter, heating, we have to pay for all the medical bills, flea treatments, blood tests , neutering, vaccinations and micro-chipping, among other things!

This is why we rely so heavily on the kindness and generosity of the local people.

There are three ways to donate

1) For a one off donation or to set up a standing order to help us, please contact our treasurer on 0345 371 2064.  

2) Click on the Donate button in the bucket in the top right corner of this page and complete the form.

3) Via our JustGiving page here.

Please remember to always include your name, address and indicate if you would like to give gift aid when you send in any donation.
Not only will we be able to thank you but we can also make sure that your donation will qualify for Gift Aid meaning that we can a further 28p in every pound from the tax man!
 
Volunteer
We rely solely on volunteers to make the branch work!  We would welcome your help especially if you think you may be able to help to look after cats in our care whilst we find them new homes!  Fosterer's (cat carers) temporarily house cats whilst waiting for them to be re-homed - this can be done in a spare room or in a purpose build cat pen (provided) in your garden!  All expenses are paid for, and the role gives enormous satisfaction.  Quite simply, we cannot operate without fosterers!  Contact us for more information.

Unwanted Cat Food & Accessories
If your cat is anything like most cats there will be one flavour of cat food in a selection box they won't eat.  We will gratefully accept these sachets and tins!  Just collect them together and, when you have a bag or box full, donate them to us.  We have cats which will be glad of it!  Contact us for details of where to take the food, or we can collect.
If your cat also has scratching posts, blankets and toys they have not used or played with we would be very grateful for these items also.

Please email fundraising@stalbans.cats.org.uk to find where and how you can donate these items

Unwanted GiftsGrey and white kitten
Do you have unwanted gifts?  If the answer is "Yes" then why not donate them to our branch?  We are always in need of items to use in raffles, online auctions, Quiz Nights and Tombola stalls at our fundraising events.  Please contact fundraising@stalbans.cats.org.uk





Gifts in Wills
Gifts in wills provide an important income for Cats Protection.  We are grateful for the kindness of people who remember us in their will, and this is a significant source of support for the work we do.  It allows us to keep our promise that we will never put a healthy cat to sleep.  For more information on leaving a gift in your will, please click here.   You can donate to the National branch of Cats Protection or specify that your legacy goes to your local branch wherever that might be.
Thank you for all your support and help and for thinking of us with your donation.
