We have seen a huge rise in the number of kittens being born in and around South Yorkshire over the past few months. Each day we receive calls from people who’s pet cats have dropped litters unexpectedly or members of the public coming across ferals setting up home in their back yards. The number of unwanted cats in the area is spiralling out of control.
Rain Rescue are taking action to try and help these poor cats and their litters. Just this week we have taken in 6 cats into foster to find them homes and will ensure they are healthy and neutered. A mum and her four kittens was especially distressing to see as the mum was only a baby herself.
One of our volunteers and a band of friends have made it their mission to help the ferals who roam a huge site in Sheffield . There are around 100 cats to neuter at the site in Sheffield, a big project but somehow Rain Rescue are going to try and help the pitiful things.
With a team of dedicated volunteers we will trap and neuter each cat to try and stop their ever growing population so they can lead healthier lives. We have had fantastic offers of transport and cat shelters – thank you to all who have helped so far. The team have in just a few days set up a cat shelter on site and trapped and neutered 2 cats.
We are also hoping to provide better facilities for the cats here in our care here at Rain Rescue by building a more suitable cattery on site. In the mean time we have a fantastic bunch of fosterers who are doing a sterling job caring for the cats until their new homes come along.
