Worthing Cat Welfare Trust has been rescuing, treating, rehabilitating and re-homing cats and kittens in the Worthing area since 1995. In the last year more than 180 have benefitted from our highly professional level of care. A current list of cats ready for adoption is posted and updated regularly on our website.
At that time we had 40 cats in our care and the princely sum of £40! We did car boot sales and any other fundraising that would help. We paid for cat food and vet bills ourselves. Carla Lane opened our first charity shop in Brighton Road, which proved to be very successful and started us out on the path to where we are today.
We couldn’t have done any of it without our band of foster mums, volunteers and loyal supporters. We all kept each other going through the ups and downs at this time. Today, we still have our foster mums, volunteers and loyal supporters and through sheer hard work and determination, 2020 has found us to be the successful charity that we are today. We are so lucky and appreciate all you do for us.
We also have new Trustees and committee members, whose enthusiasm inspires us all and our shop at South Street, Tarring goes from strength to strength with Abigail at the helm.
We have an excellent network of temporary foster homes, which really equates to a virtual sanctuary without the ruinous costs of setting up our own establishment. With Jackie as our dedicated welfare officer, we will carry on with the excellent job that we do and that is rescuing and rehoming cats and kittens in and around the Worthing area.
