Cats in Crisis Thanet (registered charity no. 1122296) are an entirely voluntary charity. We rescue and rehome cats in the Thanet area of Kent, UK, with particular concern for elderly cats and ferals. We usually have more than 100 cats in our care at any one time.
We do not have a rescue centre – our cats are all cared for by volunteers in their own homes. This means that our cats are usually well socialised and used to being around other cats.
Our volunteers are available out of hours and at weekends for emergencies, and vets have personal mobile numbers for us.
We have no wage bills, so that every penny we receive in donations can be ploughed straight into animal care. Our volunteers heavily subsidise the work of Cats in Crisis from their own pockets.
Animals are our lives. As well as working hard to care for and rehome cats and dogs, many of our members are dedicated animal welfare activists, who try to make time to attend rallies and demos against fur, live exports and animal experiments. Many of us are vegetarians or vegans.
We are a truly local charity: we believe that by improving the lives of Thanet’s animals we also work for the benefit of local people.
