Welcome to Walsall Borough Cats Protection Home Page.
WALSALL BOROUGH CATS PROTECTION
in March of 2003 after spending 10 years operating as ALDRIDGE & BROWNHILLS BRANCH we were given the chance to expand and now we mainly take cats into care from these POST CODE Areas:
WS1, WS2, WS3, WS4, WS5, WS8, WS9, WS10
(Darlaston Only); B74
WE ARE SORRY TO SAY THAT WE ARE NOT A 200 PEN SHELTER WHICH YOU ARE LED TO BELIEVE FROM T.V. SHOWS.
Our rescued cats are kept in the 8 PENS
and 1 SPARE ROOM
at the moment.
To help rescue more cats we need more spaces to house them, and with more than 30 cats reported to us each week we have to prioritise what we take in.Pregnant and injured cats come first.
In some cases we will offer a compromise if you are willing to meet us half way. This will be discussed when you talk to our coordinator.
We have a small, happy band of volunteers who help by working to rescue
and rehome the stray and unwanted cats and kittens in our branch area.
we are always on the look out for more to come along and help us with
fund-raising and fostering.(Something for you to think about maybe)
We offer FREE NEUTERING to any cat owner in receipt of State Benefits living in Walsall.
For further information
please phone 01543 360819 (daytime)
or 01922 682005
Most of our income is generated by Fund-Raising. Essential if we are
to be able to meet our average MONTHLY Veterinary Bills of £1000.
THINK you could help as a Volunteer, then call 01922 682005 and have a chat.
If you would like to ADOPT one of our featured cats that we have in care then PLEASE call our coordinator on 01922 682005 after 6.00pm WEEKDAYS.
(e-mailing us slows down the process, so it is best to call our coordinator directly)
Our Coordinator as do many of our fosterers work during the day and
sometimes cannot be contacted as quickly as you would want them to be.
If you email us then you will be referred to the coordinator if your
enquiry is about adoption.
If you are going on holiday
please wait until you come back from your time away before you come and
see us about adopting a cat/kitten. You need time to adjust to your new
family member and they and you need to create a daily routine.
Our policy is that we will only place a reserve on kittens that are
not of adoption age with the understanding that they are homed as soon
as they reach adoption age.
We operate a "WAITING TO COME INTO CARE" list, and at the moment
there are more cats waiting than we have pen space for. So please be
patient and considerate when you are reporting a stray cat to us. If we
can help immediately then we will, but we are not a 200 pen Shelter and
cannot possibly take every reported cat into our care.
Please be expected to assist us in maintaining an out of rescue care
for the cat you wish to report as a stray or unwanted. By meeting us
half way then, when we can help the cat that causes concern for both you
and us, we will help.
We also get phone calls and emails from people who have LOST or FOUND a cat.
We now have a LOST & FOUND page and we will attempt to update it regularily with any reported cats.
We are all volunteers and have to work some of the time so please be
patient and try again if you dont get through first time. Thank You
