Story

Just today a large tree stump from the cliffs above our cattery at our Torbay rehoming centre slid down the bank and smashed into one of our cattery buildings, crushing the roof. The first priority was to get to terrified cat Oscar, who had the shock of his life when mud and branches came crashing through the roof of his enclosure.

Luckily, all 15 cats in the cattery were unharmed and the team sprang into action to evacuate the cats and find places for them to stay. Thankfully, our team is safe too.

Three of our cat pens are crushed by the fallen tree, and damage is considerable.

We would be very grateful for any donations people can give as we work to get our rehoming centre back up and running again.

Your donations will be used to help repair the damage at our Torbay rehoming centre. If we exceed our target, any additional funds will go towards our vital work treating.
