If you run a boarding cattery, vets, pub, club, cafe or other public premises, or if you would like to host a collection pot for us at your workplace, please read on:

Collection Pots are a useful additional souce of funds for Cat Chat. Every penny really does count, so we would like to find more cat-friendly places to pop our pots please!

Each collection pot is individually numbered, with a security seal. We will also provide you with a replacement seal, for use when you empty the pot, and a receipt will be sent for all donations received from collection pots.

For many rescues Cat Chat is their 'Rehoming Lifeline'
All donations, however small, help to ensure the future of that lifeline

Interested? Here's what to do...

To enable us to monitor all allocated collection pots, we need full details of the person responsible for hosting and emptying the pot, and of the premises where the pot is to be sited. If you are able to host a collection pot on our behalf, either contact us from the establishment's own email address, or write to us on headed paper of the establishment where the pot is to be sited. We cannot send out collection pots in response to contact from a personal email address (to prevent fraudulent usage of the pot).

Please include the following details in your email or letter:

  • The name & address of the premises where the pot will be sited
  • Your full name
  • Your own full address (if different from the premises address)
  • Your position at the above premises (owner, manager, employee etc)
  • A contact phone number
  • A contact email address (a business email, not your personal email)
  • You should also state in your communication that you agree to be the nominated 'Potholder'

Important Notes:
1. If you are an employee applying for a pot to site in your workplace, you must first obtain the permission of your manager or superviser.
2. Our collection pots may NOT be used for street collections, or door-to-door collections unless specifically authorised by us and the necessary licence obtained. Collecting in this way is illegal without a licence.
3. You must be aged 18 years or over to apply for a Cat Chat collection pot. 
4. It is the Pothohlder's responsibility to ensure that reasonable precautions are taken regarding the safety of the pot and it's contents.  

As the old saying goes... 'Every Penny Counts'... Pennies mount up into Pounds, and Pounds help More Cats find Homes!

Thank You to those of you who host a Cat Chat collection pot!
