Stray Cat Rescue
Stray Cat Rescue was formed in December of 2002 with the aim of rehoming and caring for lost, stray and abandoned cats. It is a small group based in South Bedfordshire (UK) and covers (roughly) Luton, Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard and surrounding areas. We have a policy to ensure that no cat in our care is put down except in extreme cases of illness or injury, with veterinary advice.
The group was originally formed by people who had been involved with other animal charity work and who shared a like minded interest in cat welfare. Many of the members involved have a wealth of experience built up over many years dealing with (in some cases) a wide variety of animals. All the members are volunteers and the group relies on the fundraising skills of our hard working fundraising team as well as donations from our friends at flumpy.co.uk and members of the public. Information on upcoming events are available on the Upcoming Events page.
Our activities often require the services of the local veterinary practices and their support is invaluable in caring for cats with sometimes complex medical problems. Over the years members have built up a close working relationship with the vets and we hope to retain this working relationship as the group grows. The primary veterinary practices we use are Julia M Boness in Barton-Le-Clay and Harding & Ng in Leighton Buzzard.
We are delighted and honoured to welcome Simon Tofield as our Patron.
