Our Aims

Our aims are to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome the cats and kittens coming into our care.

We take them in as strays, also those who have been abandoned by uncaring owners. Some have been neglected by their owners and are in need of treatment, reassurance and a lot of tender loving care.

Road traffic victims are brought to us injured, so we commence emergency veterinary treatment and endeavour to try to trace the owner. If this is not successful the cat or kitten remains in our care while being treated, and if still not claimed will be rehomed once being passed as fit by the Veterinary Surgeon. We also take cats in whose owners have passed away or are unable to care for them. Also for owners that move and are unable to take their pets to the new accommodation. Relationship break-ups and allergies are also other reasons we would be called on to help.

All necessary treatments are carried out before rehoming eg: all are tested for Feline Leukaemia and Feline Aids routinely, any dental treatment needed is carried out or any other surgical or medical treatments or investigations. All are treated for fleas and worms.

Prior to rehoming, any kittens or cats over 4 months of age are neutered or spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Any kittens under this age when homed are neutered through us when they are 4-5 months of age and microchipped at the same time as the surgery.

We carry out home visits before rehoming our cats and kittens and follow up visits are carried out 2-3 months after homing. We keep in touch with the new owner over the phone for the first 3 weeks of them having the cat or kitten from us, so if there are any problems/concerns these can hopefully be ironed out as they arise.

We remain responsible for ANY cat or kitten we rehome in the event of the new owner being unable to keep them or care for them, this applies throughout the animals life, and we will take them back into our care at any stage/age.

Feral Cats & Kittens

We also deal with feral cats and kittens on the Island. We have helped 100’s over the years, whether they are in rural areas, town centres or residential areas. We aim to neuter and release them back to the same site, if there is a source of food and the environment is suitable for them. If this is not possible we endeavour to find suitable alternative accommodation for them eg at a stable, smallholding or farm. A good standard of living is a priority in every case.

Neutering/Spaying & Microchipping Scheme

We are running a Special Neutering/Spaying & Microchipping Scheme for low-income families.  We are aware that the majority of people want to be responsible pet owners and are eager to have their cats/kittens neutered and spayed. The scheme has been running now since 2002, and we hope it will continue on the long term, as it does have a knock on effect in reducing the cruelty figures and also those of neglect. Also Microchipping will quickly help identify lost cats that may have been picked up as strays.

Fund Raising

Fund raising is ongoing. We attend various events throughout the Summer months, and we hold our own Summer and Christmas Fayres. We also go to Car Boot Sales during the Spring, Summer and as far into Autumn as we can ! Liz and Doug can be contacted on: 298882 as we are always looking for good quality bric -a-brac – unwanted gifts – books – toiletries – gift sets – good quality toys – new/nearly new clothes – Raffle and Tombola Prizes and cakes/pastries for our Summer and Christmas Fayres. We can collect if you prefer.  We are always in need of items to sell on our stalls – any money raised goes directly to help the cats/kittens in our care.
