Long stay cats deserve the best too.

 

We have a number of cats that for various reasons can’t be homed and need to stay with us, often for health or behaviour issues that can be costly to treat and emotionally draining to deal with . The stresses of being adopted to risky and the cost for adopters to high. 

We have a strict no destroy policy and a depleting bank balance,  the pandemic has had huge impact on our small charity making fundraising events impossible. 

Please consider supporting us donations can be made via PayPal or direct bank transfer. https://www.paypal.me/CatsRUs

Thank you.

Thank you

 

 So many people to thank we simply can’t fit all names in so please know how grateful we are to you all. Wether it’s been donations instead of Christmas cards, direct bank donations, go fund me, PayPal or Facebook  THANK YOU.  Donations of raffle prizes and cat food and goodies have been amazing too. It’s been quite a year and it’s not over yet. Stay safe everyone and roll on 2021 😻.

Help Cats R Us through Pandemic

Please Help Save Cats R Us click this link to go to our go fund me page.


Coronavirus has had a huge impact on small charities who unlike the large charities cant launch huge fundraising campaigns with paid advertising , don't benefit from rate relief or staff furlough because we don't have paid staff only unpaid volunteers.

No fundraising events means no funds and Cats r us has also had to close its small fundraising store as couldn't afford overheads.

Cats R Us has a strict no destroy policy and are left with a lot of very difficult to home cats either because of their health or behaviour problems and all still have to be fed and vet treated regularly, volunteers feeding them and the feral colonies we support are doing so out of their own pockets as funds are so low.

Sadly if no funds come in then Cats R Us may have to close completely which would be devastating for the local area cats.

Please consider making even a small donation to help this charity keep going.

Since 1998 Cats R us has been helping cats even fighting Toys R Us for their name https://straycatsrus.blogspot.com/p/blast-from-past-cats-r-us.html 

See some of the rescue successes here https://straycatsrus.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html  there are many more too.

Coronavirus

Coronavirus: well we are likely going to struggle for cat food in the coming weeks. Amazon may not see cat food as delivery priority.  All our trustees and some volunteers fall into the self isolation groups.  Our vet bills are fully paid up to date , all fundraising events this year have been cancelled and fundraising store will likely be closed a few weeks soon.  Donations of cat food can still be dropped off at store entrance as we will hopefully be able to check regularly.  If you would like to support us at this difficult time donations can be made via PayPal  https://www.paypal.me/CatsRUs or direct banking our account details
