What we do
The Haverhill and District branch is a dedicated and friendly group of people, working together to rescue and re-home unwanted cats and kittens in Haverhill and the surrounding areas.
We take in stray, unwanted and abandoned cats. We accept cats of all ages, and it is not our policy to put an elderly or disabled animal to sleep.
We do not have a central adoption centre. This means all our cats in care are looked after in individual homes of dedicated fosterers.
Before our cats and kittens are homed, they are checked by qualified veterinary surgeons, blood tested, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for worms and fleas, and neutered (if old enough). If you adopt a kitten from us that is below 4 months old, we will meet the full cost of neutering, once the animal is old enough for the procedure. When adopted, our cats also come with 4 weeks free insurance, to help provide a good start in their new home.
Subject to interest in adoption from our branch, we carry out a complete home visit before allowing you to meet our available cats. This ensures that a potential adopter only needs to visit those cats which are suitable for their home.
We truly believe that our adoption procedure ensures that our cats and kittens find suitable and loving homes.
The number of cats we can help depends on how much money we can raise. Our fundraisers are busy thinking of new ways to raise money and engage our local community. Our fundraising events throughout the year include manning stalls at events or rattling tins outside supermarkets.
See the events page or our Facebook page for our upcoming events.
If you would like to take part in our fundraising, or have a great fundraising idea to share with us, please get in touch.
Our team aims to raise awareness on responsible cat ownership, by providing advice and support to anyone that seeks it. Furthermore, we organise free neutering campaigns throughout the year, as well as helping people from low-income backgrounds to get their cats neutered.
Additionally, we work to control and monitor the feral cat population within the local area. Our work includes neutering and feeding feral cats.
