Bridlington, Driffield & District Branch

We are delighted that Defra has given approval for us to rehome animals again! Our cattery is open for adoptions with temporary procedures in accordance with the CFSG guidance to keep everyone safe

 

Please ensure that you follow the guidelines:

 

For the safety of the cats, we can only limit visitors to the viewing of two cats.

We are open every day, but appointments are at 12.30 only.

Please wear a face mask and bring your own cat carrier.

If you or any of your family have COVID-19 symptoms, please cancel your appointment.

A maximum of two visitors are allowed in the cattery, and sorry, we cannot accept children at this time.

When you arrive, please wait in your car and call our cattery from your mobile. We will then come to you and bring you to the cattery. We will open all gates and doors.

 

If you have already reserved a cat, we will be contacting you within the next 48 hours to book your long awaited adoption! If you are looking to adopt, please take a look at our website to see which cat would be suitable for you, and contact our Coi-ordinator on 07712459857 for more information.

 

Thank you for your support throughout this time.

 

As all our fundraising events have been cancelled and our charity shop has closed for now, we have very little income coming in but all the bills still have to be paid. Any donations would be really appreciated. You can donate by clicking on the blue button at the top of this page.

Many thanks to everyone who supports us at this very difficult time.

 Forthcoming Events for 2020

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are unable to hold any fundraising events this year.

If you wish to support us, you could join our local Branch Lottery for £1 a week or join our "Friends" and give us a small monthly/quarterly donation. Any offer of support will be really appreciated.

Please email anything you are interested in doing to:

Hedgehogs

 

Hedgehogs in gardens can be fed on dog food or cat food, but not ones containing fish, and given water to drink until they hibernate. Under no circumstances should they be given milk as this can make them really ill or worse. Piles of fallen leaves and small twigs are ideal for them to hibernate over winter in gardens.

 

Please do not use netting in your gardens or allotments as hedgehogs get trapped in it. We have had many casualties taken to the vets that have been trapped in netting, some of them in a really bad way and some who despite everyones best efforts have sadly not made it.

 

Hedgehogs should not normallybe out and about in daylight. It is a sign that they are in trouble. Hedgehogs can be taken to our local vets for checking over and given any necessary treatment. They will then go to Jane, our hedgehog volunteer, or another hedgehog rescue.

 

Please see our designated hedgehog page for more information. 

 

 

 

Every cat that comes into our care has a full health check including being tested for FELV if appropriate. This is really important and especially so if going into a household that has existing cats. All cats are treated for worms and fleas. Our cats are given treatment for fleas and ticks that last for 3 months. With the exception of young kittens all cats are neutered and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Adopters of young kittens are given a voucher to cover the cost of neutering when the kitten is old enough. All this treatment costs our local branch over £100 for a male cat & £140 for a female. We keep cats in our care for a minimum of 3 weeks until they have been given both vaccinations. It costs £37 a week to board a cat so add that to the veterinary care makes the total cost in excess of £200 even if a cat is lucky enough to find a new home straightaway. Sometimes cats can spend many months in our care before they find their forever home. Many cats also need extra veterinary care, (not many come in in tip top condition!)such as dental treatment.

The adoption fee for a cat in our care is £65 so we think this is a very reasonable fee.  We do NOT charge more for kittens!

If you are looking to adopt a cat please look at the lovely pictures on our cats looking for new homes page, download and complete the Perfect Match form or ring 07712459857 for more information on cats and kittens.
