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.
