Save a Stray, Sheffield
Updated: Dec 4, 2020
The mission of SAVE A STRAY, in Sheffield, is to try to reduce the number of local strays and feral cats having to live on the streets and in the wild. They neuter as many of these cats as possible, their aim being to enhance the life of every cat they encounter. Many have been born in the wild as a consequence of poor animal ownership or find themselves struggling through abandonment or neglect.
Their aims are:
To trap and neuter stray and feral cats to control breeding,.
To socialise and re-home as many cats as possible.
To provide information to enable the public to help strays in the area.
To flea/worm all cats they come into contact with.
To promote the benefits of neutering and good ownership.
Whist in their foster care they provide food, cat litter and any veterinary treatment and are grateful for any help to make this possible to enable them to go out and rescue more animals. They are a small volunteer-run organisation based in Sheffield/Barnsley and any donations are welcome in the form of food, litter, money, toys, rabbit hutches to provide shelter for the ones that can not be rehomed.
THE SANCTUARY ANGELS sent £300 to Save a Stray as part of their Winter Appeal 2020: "Received with thanks 🙏🙏🙏. We'd like to buy some more outdoor sleeping boxes, food for the ferals and we'd like to transfer some to the vet account. The only thing ferals have in life is food and they usually get tins that others don't want, so it will be really nice to be able to get something tasty for them as a treat. We also have several who need dentals and teeth extractions. Your donation will help a lot of cats out of pain that would otherwise be suffering alone out on the street. Xx"
