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.

Homing costs

Our cats and kittens have, as a minimum, a basic Veterinary Health Check, as well as being flea’d and wormed, although they often need other treatment when they first arrive.

Basic kitten costs:

Health check by vet                    £15.53

Frontline spot-on flea treatment    £3.95

Worming treatment                      £3.05

Total cost per kitten               £22.52

Basic adult female costs:

Blood test for FIV/Felv                 £17.61

Spay adult female                        £38.81

Flea treatment and worming         £6.99

Total costs / adult female      £63.41

To blood test, neuter, flea treat and worm adult male costs £53.58

None of the above includes food and litter for as long as the cat or kitten is with us.  A suggested contribution of £30 per cat/kitten is much appreciated and helps hugely towards our costs of treatment and care for our rescued cats and kittens.
