Welcome to Shropshire Cat Network
What does Shropshire Cat Network do?
We evolved during the pandemic to help cats and people with cats. Since then we have become a not-for-profit organisation and set up a TNR Program – to date we have neutered over 140 cats in the Oswestry and Wrexham areas. We work with the smaller Rescues, like Sleapy Cat Rescue in Wem and Candy & Tibby Trust in Wrexham. We help support each other.
Our goal is to help the unowned cats – the Community Cats – the ferals and strays who have little to no chance of being neutered (or spayed) or of receiving veterinary treatment for illness or injury.
These cats are the most vulnerable. They are the most likely to be neglected and they are the most likely to be forgotten.
They live in our Communities but often have to struggle to survive, sometimes in harsh conditions, with not enough food and lack of adequate shelter.
We give these cats a second chance through our Foster, Adoption and Relocation Programs.
We can only do this with support from people like you.
The more support we get the more cats we are able to help.
Education is key!
We want to provide people with the necessary INFORMATION, SKILLS and SUPPORT so they will be able to help their cats in their Community.
It’s easy enough to Trap a load of cats and get them Neutered with a view to Returning them to the place where they were living but WHAT IF…? There are so many What if’s….
The location may be dangerous; there is a cat that needs veterinary treatment; there is a Mother with kittens; there is a heavily pregnant cat; there are older unsocialised kittens; there is a very friendly cat that we could find a home for. The list is endless.
