Cats Protection is appealing for Harrow cat-lovers to make a New Year’s Resolution to help local cats in need by volunteering to help at its new centre.
The charity’s Harrow Homing Centre, due to open in Tudor Road in the Spring, will care for up to 600 cats every year while they wait to find new local owners.
With construction already underway, the charity is now appealing for volunteers for a variety of roles, including cat care assistants and volunteer fosterers.
Lydia Sawyer, Manager of Cats Protection’s Harrow Homing Centre, said: “We’re really excited about opening our Harrow Homing Centre as it will enable us to help give even more cats a second chance in life.
“This new centre will especially help unwanted and abandoned cats in London, while also giving countless people in Harrow and the surrounding area the chance to find their perfect pet.
“We’ve been so grateful for all the messages of support we’ve received from the local community and would now love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved. We’ll have all sorts of volunteer roles available, from helping look after the cats to organising fundraising events and activities.
“No formal qualifications are needed, just a love of cats and bags of enthusiasm. In return, you’ll get the satisfaction of making a real difference to local cats in need.”
As well as appealing for volunteers, Cats Protection has also launched a fundraising appeal towards the cost of the centre’s 20 cat pens, each of which costs £300 to equip with sleeping areas, feeding bowls, litter trays, bedding, scratching posts and toys.
