About the charity

Story

We are a 100% volunteer run charity in our 21st year of operation. We receive no public funding and all monies raised come from our Boutique Shop in Roushill Bank, Shrewsbury, sponsorship, donations, legacies and fund raising events.

Due to Coronavirus our shop has had to close for the time being in order to protect our volunteers, most of whom are amazing retired people, our fundraising events have had to be been postponed and we are no longer able to open the Shelter for Saturday visits from April until September. Adults and children love to visit the Shelter, see the cats and other animals, (guinea pigs, pygmy goats, shetland ponies, pigs, ducks, chickens and Hector the dog), enjoying 'Paws for a cuppa', our outdoor cafe with homemade cake and cream teas and our little on-site shop.' All of these activities raise funds for our Charity in normal times.

Our vet and medication bills for last year were in excess of £40k, which averages £3.5k per month and this is paid for mainly from the proceeds of our shop and Shelter activities.

Most of this expense is to look after our 'Villagers'. Our Village is where we take in cats over 10 years old whose owners have gone into care homes, died or no longer able to look after them. Many are on medication, and require weekly visits from the vet to check on their health as we want them to enjoy their retirement in comfort.

We understand that these are difficult times at present especially from the financial aspect but if you are able to donate even a small amount please #helpmakeadifference

We have all the other ongoing bills to pay at the Shelter and a donation would help so much.

Thank you for reading this.
