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.
In response to demand we do have a scheme guaranteeing to take in cats from people in the event of their death. As we have expanded to take on 60 more cats, we have more capacity to enable us to make sure we can always do this. Please see the 'About Us' page for further details.
We are delighted that we have an active patron who has strong links with animal welfare. Jeremy Stattersfield MA BM Vet MRCVS, is Principal of Burnham House Veterinary Surgeries at Dover, Folkestone, Whitfield & Walmer. Jeremy is well known throughout Kent & neighbouring counties for his work in helping animal charities, has agreed to be an honorary patron of the Sanctuary.
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.
