cat homing page cats protection wharfe valleyCATS PROTECTION - WHARFE VALLEY
Registered Charity no: 203644
The Wharfe Valley area lies between the Yorkshire Dales and the cities of Leeds and Bradford. In addition to finding homes for many homeless cats and kittens, they run a sponorship scheme for their long-term residents Volunteer cat lovers wanted: If you have any spare time and would like to help, the branch would love to hear from you.
Lost & Found Register: The branch runs a lost & found register for missing cats in their area, contact as below.
Feral & Farm Cats: The branch is experienced in trapping, neutering and returning feral or farm cats, have all the necessary humane equipment and work with experienced vets. This work is invaluable to stop interbreeding, cuts off a supply of kittens that get handed out to people who probably won't neuter them, and gives the poor adult cats a chance of a healthier, happier life. Did you know that a neutered cat makes a much better mouser? (sorry mice!).
Urgent Appeal - Feral & Farm Cats Needing Homes: The branch is full to bursting with feral cats that couldn't for various reasons be returned to site. So if you are around West Yorkshire and need someone to keep the mice and rats down, or just want some outdoor cats, please get in touch. You would need to feed the cats in their temporary home for a couple of weeks then release them and continue to feed to encourage them to stay. A starving cat will only catch food to eat, a fed cat enjoys the sport so catches more rodents (sorry again, mice and rats!)
