Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue is a small charity providing a number of very important community based programs. These include Seniors for Seniors where cats are matched with older Australians who want the companionship of a pet, but feel they cannot commit to the long term care a pet would entail. These cats remain in the name of the charity and we continue to provide health care where applicable, and the owner just supplies the daily needs of the cat eg food and litter. We also provide Crisis Care while owners are hospitalised or experiencing an unexpected family emergency. With the ageing population many people are forced into parting with their much loved companion when they have to go into nursing homes. This can be extremely traumatic not only for the cat but the owner as well. We have known of some people who have refused to go into nursing homes because they were concerned that their pet of many years would be put to sleep if they weren't there to care for them. With this sort of situation happening more regularly, the charity desperately needs your help to continue it's work providing care and security to these mostly older companion cats and peace of mind for their owners.
