    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Many of you will already know about the work we do to help reduce the vast number of stray cats in Renfrewshire. Our group consists of a few dedicated volunteers who work seven days per week throughout the year to rescue and rehome as many cats as possible. Though under the name of Johnstone Cat Rescue, we deal with situations in towns and villages all over the county. We have to accommodate these cats, feed them, provide necessary equipment such as litter trays, scratching posts, and get them whatever vet treatment they require, be it neutering, dematting, tending to war wounds, flea and worm treatment etc. Sometimes it's more serious than that. The two cats in the photo had a combined vet bill of £2000 caused by injury and neglect. This money was raised by the donating public, and without it these cats wouldn't have survived. We receive no funding from the government or any other agency, we rely totally on the goodwill of the public to keep us going. We are asking for your help again folks. Renfrewshire's street cats are sleeping under cars and bushes, and begging for food wherever they can. They deserve a loving home just like your cat or mine. Please donate to help them.

      Angus's owner sadly passed away and there was no-one to look after him or offer him a new home. After we got him to the vet to have him neutered, we took him into foster care while we searched for a forever home for him. Along came a lovely family who fell in love with him, and subsequently adopted him. Angus is just one of many cats we rescue in Renfrewshire, and there are a lot out there who need our help. We fear the future for these cats because our funds are drying up, and without the help of the public we will not be able to continue.

      Marco was found a few weeks ago, wandering the streets and begging for food. Infested with fleas and ticks, not neutered or microchipped. With the help of a local man Marco was brought into our care. He has now been neutered and chipped, and is free from the unwelcome guests that roamed through his body. Marco has been adopted by a lovely family and will be on his way to his new home in the next few days. Marco is one of the lucky ones but there are more Marcos out there who need our help.
