MEET A VERY SPECIAL BOY NAMED KELLOgG

Kellogg came to us as a stray from Singleton, Ashford. He was being fed on Kellogg’s cornflakes and chocolates, hence his name. He was a bit rough around the edges and unfortunately has tested positive for Feline Aids (FIV).

Mother nature was unfortunately not on our side this year and with a tropical down pour half way through the day, our numbers did dwindle a bit. However, this did not detract from the fact it was a superb day for all involved. While we did not beat last year’s earnings, we managed to raise around £4300! This is a fantastic result given the weather and we would like to say a big thank you to all our helpers, supporters and volunteers who made it such a special event!

Having been short staffed and handed this year with a brand new team working together for the first time, the day was a remarkable success!  Everyone banded together to make the day such a triumph and we couldn’t have done it without our willing helpers.

WE URGENTLY REQUIRE GOOD QUALITY BRIC A BRAC FOR OUR SHOP & EVENTS. Please have a spring ‘turn out’ for us and bring your unwanted items to the Sanctuary or shop – we and the cats would be very grateful. Unfortunately, we are unable to process anything very big such as furniture.

Waiting List

Over the past year or two, we have seen a marked increase in the number of people needing to re-home their cats because they are moving into rented accommodation where pets are not allowed.

This “no pet” rule has a massive impact on rescue centres like ourselves and its a real shame that people have to make this choice and part with a much loved pet.

Generally cats are very clean and non-destructive, so is there really a need for landlords to be so strict?

If you find yourself in this position and need to re-home your cat, please do not leave it to the last minute to re-home your pet as most rescue centres have a long waiting list so the sooner you add yourself to the waiting list the better.
