In 1998 Cats R Us faced a battle with Toys R us to keep our name, we won that battle and have helped thousands of cats since but now we face another Battle.
Summer is coming and summer sees an army of abandoned and unwanted neglected kittens needing the charity’s help, a registered charity we receive no government funding and rely entirely on our fundraising and kind donations from the public without a surge in donations we are going to be unable to help as many of these kittens as need us as we are running out of funds.
Cats R Us already struggles just to pay the daily costs of food and litter for cats in care, ones like long stay Huwey with Pemphigus requiring daily medication, older cats like nineteen year old Buster and Snowy the white cat with cancer as well of the stream of cats that come into care who we then prepare and find forever homes for. Feral Colonies that we feed daily 365days a year there are lots of feral colonies that need that extra support we provide in feeding as well as neutering.
Sadly our fundraising store at South West Durham Business Centre , Dabble Duck, Shildon DL4 2QN which is open Monday Tuesday Thursday and Friday 10am till noon simply doesn’t raise enough funds for us to cover all cost involved in rescue and unless we get an increase in donations we are going to be unable to continue. Donations of cat food help enormously too, donate the cat food your cat won’t eat, buy and extra tin of food when shopping a little bit really does go a long way as well as monetary donations.
Donations of food and items to sell can also be dropped of at our dabble duck store or at Darlington Vet clinic Faverdale who kindly help us.
