A Scottish Registered Charity since 1993, the shelter rehomes on average 450 cats and kittens each year. Cats are health checked and neutered prior to re-homing.

They will always try to match cat and owner as closely as possible, as it is essential that cat and owner are happy together. So if you would like to rescue a cat (or two), give them a call!
Advice is also offered to cat owners about all aspects of cat ownership.
Neutering Assistance: The shelter offers financial help to owners towards the cost of neutering their cats.
