twenty for 2020 campaignTWENTY FOR 2020 CAMPAIGN

To celebrate our 20th anniversary, we aim to find homes for the UK’s 20 Most Overlooked Cats.

Working with hundreds of rescues across the UK and Ireland, throughout 2020 we will be identifying those cats who have been in rescue care for the longest time. By highlighting these deserving cats through nationwide publicity and social sharing, we aim to reach their perfect person.

Please Neuter Your Cat (male or female)

Neutering your cat is better for them, and for the wider cat population too! Rescue centres get over-run with kittens in spring and summer - largely because too many owners didn't get their cat spayed, resulting in unplanned, unwanted litters. Please neuter your cat - male or female. If cost is an issue, low cost neutering is available - don’t wait til it’s too late!
