Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We are a small branch located on the Isle of Arran. The island is 20 miles long and 10 miles wide. There are several villages but lots of farmland and mountainous ranges in between, including Goatfell at over 2,800 feet.

We rescue stray and abandoned cats, foster and rehome cats and kittens, neuter both domestic and feral cats and kittens. We havea  Facebook page that we use to advertise our work and for educational purposes as well as to find homes or lost owners!

Our phone line is open 24 hours a day seven days a week.

We provide advice and help in whatever way we can, not just to Arran residents but also surrounding areas like Mull of Kintyre and outlying islands such as Bute and Islay where there are no resident branches available.

We have homed cats across the UK and see no boundaries to helping cats although our primary work is for the cats of the Isle of Arran.

We may be small but our hearts are BIG!

As with all branches we rely on donations but you can appreciate that such donations are limited here on the island both through limited numbers of people - there are just over 5000 people with around 1500 households. We are one of many charities represented on the island but on of the few with actual resident help provided here.

Please can you help us increase our resources so we can help more cats desperately needing our help? For example it costs £55 to neuter a female cat and £40 for a male. Vaccinations cost approx £75 per cat. To feed a cat for a day costs a £1.Transport costs are higher than the mainland and we currently have no vehicle to help us in our work.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
