What we do
Respond to calls from members of the public who have seen a cat being abandoned or mistreated
Foster cats that have come into our care until they can be rehomed, once neutered and microchipped. In 2017 we rehomed 140 cats to new homes after being vaccinated micro chipped and neutered.
Operate a lost and found register to reunite missing cats with their owners
Arrange for veterinary care as necessary - in 2017, 317 cats received treatment in our care care.
Try to find homes for cats whose owners have become ill or died
Encourage responsible cat ownership and neutering
Trap and neuter feral cats before releasing them back where they came from.
In 2017 we neutered 178 feral cats all of them receiving other treatments before being returned
We found new homes for two dozen that could not be returned to their original sites for one reason or another.
We are also currently feeding 7 feral colonies aided by members or helpers
Carry out a variety of fundraising activities, including bazaars and carnival stalls - check our news & events area for upcoming fundraising activities.
Our members have always tried to help cats beyond the area we were set up to serve but as many our team do not drive, and others have day jobs, it has not always been easy to meet half the demand.
The loss of branches around us and increasing neglect of cats in the West Yorkshire conurbation has put a huge strain on our rescue team and our fundraisers. On top of this our fame has spread through such things as radio programmes, yellow pages and more recently the internet. We are a high profile branch in an area of great need.
This is reflected in the rocketing of our activity figures during the last three years or so.
