We cover the following postcodes: WF1 to 7, WF12 to 17 and LS 26 and LS27.
Our main aim is to reduce the number of unwanted cats and kittens by rehoming them to loving homes and promoting neutering of both owned and feral cats.
We have a small dedicated team of volunteers, most of whom have full time jobs, who foster cats at their own homes, ‘neuter and return’ ferals, fundraise and deal with the administration.
We need more people to help us to help more cats. If you live in our area you can help by adopting a cat or volunteering. We especially want more fosterers and homecheckers.
Can you fund raise for us, raffles etc. or have a collecting box? We also collect books and clean clothes to sell – just contact the Helpline 01924 261524.
Another way to help is to subscribe to our Scratching Post newsletter the annual subscription is £8.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Get involved with National Black Cat day 2016
Our annual celebration of black and black & white cats is happening on 27th October. This year, we want to acknowledge the uniqueness of black cats and focus on what makes them individually special. After all beauty is more than fur deep.
Go to cats.org.uk to upload a photo of your black or black & white cat for a chance to become the face of National Black Cat Day 2016. You can also Tweet or Instagram your photos using #BCDComp and #BlackCatDay to enter.
Give a thought too to adopting a black or black & white cat of your own. Have a look at our website and contact us for more information. Don't see one that catches your eye? Contact us anyway, we also have cats not yet on the website.
Missy and Poppy are still looking for a new home. Meet them HERE.
We are struggling to find suitable sites for the relocation of some of our feral cats, when we bring them in for neutering. If you know of any farms, stables, smallholdings or similar, where they might be willing to take in some of these cats, we would love to hear from you.
The cats would need to be contained for a few weeks to get used to their new surroundings and then provided with a dry shelter and some daily food. In return they will work hard, keeping their new home free of any rats, mice and other undesirables.
Please contact us if you can help.
We are desperate for some new volunteers. More information HERE
