About our resources

We are a small charity with no paid staff, completely reliant on donations to fund our running costs. These can be high: our vets' bill for one month can come in at £1,100 or more. We are very sorry but we are unable to pay vets' bills for animals other than those in our care.

We are also sorry that we have limited capacity to take in all the animals that need our help. Our pens and foster-homes are always over-subscribed, and space can only be found when one of the residents moves on to a permanent home.

All donations of money, food and goods to sell are gratefully received. Please see elsewhere on this site for details of events and help needed.

Are you a cat lover? Could you run a cat rescue?

Hay Cat Rescue has rescued, rehabilitated and found homes for over 1000 cats and kittens, and helped many more in other ways, since it was established in 2004.
So it is with a heavy heart that due to worsening Arthritis I will be unable to continue to provide this much needed service for the cats and the community for much longer.
Hay Cat Rescue is, therefore, looking for a reliable cat lover, or several cat lovers working together, willing and able to continue to run this small, independent, registered Charity. This involves accommodating, sometimes trapping, veterinary health checks, record keeping and fundraising, as well as delivering cats and kittens to their new homes. Some equipment is available to a committed and caring person.
Over the years HCR has been very generously supported by many kind and caring people who would, I am sure, continue to help with donations of cat food and goods for fundraising.
If no one is forthcoming, Hay Cat Rescue will close once the cats in our care have found their new homes.
For more information, or to offer a cat a home, please call Kathie on 01497 821401.

Oliver. A super chap with FIV looking for a special home.

Ollie 1  Oliver is a neutered male about 3 years old. He is a wonderful black & white chap with lots of character. His left eye was removed when he was found with it, badly scarred, possibly from an old injury and thought to save him from further complications. He copes amazingly well and seems a happy chap, taking home life in his stride, loves a cosy bed and most of all, his food! He is wary of new sounds, and dogs and unfamiliar surroundings but is an easy going chap who likes lounging in his bed, playing and having cuddles. He has, sadly, tested positive for FIV, so would need to be an only cat or the company of another with FIV and would need to stay indoors or have an outside run. He can still have a long and healthy life and has so much to give the right home. He is a special boy who touches your heart when you meet him and really deserves the best and a sofa he can call his own! For further information & to meet Ollie please call Tania on 01544 350708 or e mail her at taniacoates@mac.com While happy to help find Ollie his forever home, HCR is not responsible for his care and condition.
