Loughborough Cat Sanctuary
IMPORANT! We can no longer take in any more cats
Due to an increase in the number of cats being dumped at the sanctuary recently, Joyce has no room available for any more cats. We are desperately looking for new homes for our kitties who are looking for a second chance at finding a forever human that will look after them properly. If you have space in your home for a cat, please come and meet our kitties.
If you really can't take care of your pet cat any more and need to find a new home for them, please consider the following rescue centres and sanctuaries in the surrounding area:
Please rescue, don't buy!
There are literally thousands of cats and kittens being taken-in at shelters such as ours every year throughout the UK. Unfortunately the number of these homeless cats far out-weighs the supply of good, loving homes. Whilst people continue to buy from pet-shops and profit-orientated breeders, this situation continues to get worse and many cats can spend the rest of their lives in sanctuaries and shelters. Although these rescue centres do everything they can to care for the poor little kitties, their pens are no substitute for a real home of their own. You can help by adopting your cat or kitten from an animal rescue centre or animal shelter like the Loughborough Cat Sanctuary - or by neutering your cat at six months to prevent any unwanted litters. Every cat deserves a home!
Some Extra Patience and Love Required...
There are a number of semi-feral cats at the sanctuary at the moment. These cats have often been abandoned at some point and left to fend for themselves in the wild. They are no less worthy of a loving home and certainly no less of a pet... but they may require just that little bit of extra patience and love whilst they adjust again. Come and meet these lovely cats. If you have the time and patience to give them a second chance, they will provide you with love and enjoyment in return.
The Sanctuary is currently downsizing as Mrs Harris feels is struggling to run the Sanctuary at full capacity. However, there are still many cats in our care that are patiently waiting to become a part of a new family.
We are looking to relocate the Sanctuary in order to continue her legacy of caring for, and re-homing, homeless cats and kittens. Please contact the Sanctuary if you know of any land or property in the local area that would be suitable for our relocation.
