We have been asking for a minimum donation of £50 per cat for the last few years and that does not even cover what we have spent on most cats.
Every cat has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and de flead and wormed.
Whenever people donate more, we are so very grateful.
We have now had to increase our minimum donation to £60 per cat. This now includes a micro chip in adult cats.
Thank you for understanding.

Claire raised £275 for braving the zip wire. Thank you to everybody who donated.

On Thurs 6th September, Co Manageress Claire is going to do a sponsored zip wire and Mega Drop to raise money for the cats here at Rhodes Minnis Cat Sanctuary.
She will whizz past the city’s world-famous skyline during an adrenaline-pumping zip line adventure. It is one of the world’s fastest urban zip wires with Zip Now London at Archbishop’s Park.
She will feel the wind in her hair while zooming past some of London’s top attractions, including The Shard, Big Ben and the Coca-Cola London Eye.
A true adrenaline seeker, Claire will climb to heights of 35m (115ft) above south London, before making an exhilarating 225m (738ft) descent. The zip line experience goes to speeds of up to 31mph (50km/h) and promises to give riders the ultimate thrill.
THE MEGA DROP is a freefall jump which is 15 meters high. It requires riders to take a step into the void, with a stomach-flipping freefall followed by a gradual slowing towards ground. It’s a bit like a bungee jump without the bounce.

The grand total raised for our open day on Sunday 22nd July was £4,720.
Not quite an all time record but perhaps the many events in Folkestone, including the Red arrows took a little of the attention later in the day. Still a splendid result for a one day fundraiser and a lovely crowd to see what we do and enjoy our home made fare. As always a great big thank you to all of the staff and supporters for all the hard work making, baking and preparing in the weeks before, pulling out all the sales stops on the day and then putting it back together afterwards. all on a very warm day!
We had a great day and we were so happy to see so many of you.
