Help Us To Help Them!

enter online

FOR many years, OUR CATS ran a Rescue Directory, which was published in OUR CATS on a regular basis. Towards the end of last year, we decided to omit the column as so many of the entries were no longer in operation.

Several readers informed us that they had not been successful in contacting some of those centres on the old list.

We would like to set up this facility again, and therefore ask readers who have contacts with either local rescue centres or with cat club networks, to GET THEM to inform us if they wish to be included on a regular listing.

The listing is FREE to bona fide charities, and is a goodwill service that OUR CATS provides in order to help all cats that fall upon ‘needy times'.

However, we must stress that the inclusion on the list is dependant on a Rescue Directory Listing form being completed by the centres' owners or operators and returned to us. This form will be published regularly to enable new additions to be made or amendments to existing entries to be recorded. Centres or cat club networks will need to renew their details every 12 months.

Rescue centres may be breed specific or general. The centres need not be a registered charity but must be non-profitable organisations. Lost and Found facilities and Benevolent Funds etc., are also eligible for listing.

Once the list is published, our Chief Reporter, Nick Mays,
will feature the rescue centres or club networks in OUR CATS.
