Kitten Food Appeal!!
Its that time of year again, we have pregnant cats, mums and kittens, orphan kittens as well as the usual feral and abandoned kittens and we need your help to feed them all! 
We have volunteers in Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Spennymoor, Shildon, Crook areas who are grateful for drop offs or in some cases we can collect - contact us for collections. Donations of adult cat food also gratefully received!

Fundraisers needed, could you organise a table top sale? do a car boot? hold a coffee morning/afternoon? organise something at work like a collection or fun day? if so we could provide some promotional material and even have some goods for boot sales etc. Contact us
In order for us to help as many cats as possible we need to make sure we always have funds to support the fostering and vet costs of these cats.

No CP volunteers are paid for their help. All the money we raise is used directly to help cats and kittens in need.

We do not get any funding from central or local government or any other authority. Vets' fees account for most of our running costs with fostering costs for food and litter taking up most of the remainder. Donations, no matter how small, are always very gratefully received. Without the general public, to help and support us we cannot continue our work.
