Weymouth cat cabin campaign

The Weymouth branch of the Cats' Protection League needs help to raise £5,000 to build a new cabin to because of the increasing number of local cats in need of care.

Last year, the branch of volunteers at Weymouth & District Cats Protection helped to rescue and rehome 154 cats and kittens.

Cats Protection Weymouth is appealing for help to raise some of the money towards the cost, so that more homeless and unwanted cats and kittens in the area can receive respite whilst they seek to care for them and find them new homes.

A spokesperson for the charity said: "There are so many cats in the area that are, through no fault of their own, made homeless. Like Ashley, an elderly female who came to us as a stray and needing an operation due to a serious hip injury. She has now found a loving forever home.

"With one more cat cabin, we could rescue at least another 50 cats that desperately need help this year - probably a lot more if we take in cats and their kittens. Every individual matters to us."
