Shropshire Cat Rescue
Shropshire Cat Rescue is a local animal welfare charity established in 1990, registered as a charity in 1998, and is presently based at Lyth Hill, Shrewsbury. The charity is 100% Volunteer run, and is funded by a charity shop in Shrewsbury, together with legacies, donations, sponsorship and fund raising events. During the past two years, because of Covid-19, few events had been held and the shop closed part of the time.
A unique feature of our Animal Shelter is our Moggies Retirement Village for older cats, many of whom have health problems requiring regular medication. Normally over ten years of age, these are cats whose owners have passed away, entered Care Homes or are no longer able to care for them. Here, in Moggies Mansion and six cottages, they are able to live out their lives in comfort and security.
In normal times, the Shelter hosts Open Days once a month between April and September, when visitors are made welcome to enjoy the cats, when our “Paws for a Cuppa” cafe is open offering cream teas and homemade cakes.
Shropshire Cat Rescue provides practical animal welfare advice, rescue support on a “call-out” basis to a range of local agencies including Police, Social Services and Housing Trusts, as well as to other charities and those concerned with animal welfare.
Our Big Purr project is looking to raise £2M, of which some £700K has been raised, in order to move to a larger site where we might expand our services and build on our past achievements.
