The Cats at Haslemere Cats Protection Shelter Need Your Help!
The Cats Protection Adoption Centre in Haslemere, Surrey is desperately trying to raise funds for a new isolation unit.
Despite many supporters of the charity voting for a £50,000 grant from Support Adoption for Pets to be put towards the unit, Cats Protection were not successful. They now are relying solely on fundraising and donations to build the new unit for the Haslemere adoption branch, which has already rehomed over 200 cats. Decent isolation units are crucial for adoption centres, as they allow unwell cats to be kept seperate from the main cattery - which prevents spread of illness and allows the sick cat to recooperate. Being without this means that Cats Protection Haslemere have to cap the number of cats they can help, and that volunteers at the centre are under a huge strain caring for poorly cats with inadequate facilities.
The video below, which was submitted by Cats Protection, demonstrates the impact a new isolation unit would have for cats and kittens at the adoption centre:
In short, a new isolation facility would mean that Cats Protection Haslemere could:
- Increase the number of cats they are able to find new homes for
- Ensure that cats that become ill receive the best possible care, without putting others at risk
- Take a huge strain off their volunteers who run their branches that do not have the resources to deal with this problem
- Make their Haslemere Adoption Centre a centre of excellence in the area for helping with the control of infectious diseases in cats
We all know that Cats Protection do excellent work and have helped introduce many cats to a perfect and loving forever home.
