ABANDONED animals will enjoy a brighter future thanks to the support of Waitrose Melksham shoppers
Cats Action Trust North & West Wiltshire has received £350 from the Waitrose Community Matters scheme. Shoppers receive a token at the checkout and then choose which of three charities they want to support that month.
Cats Action Trust North & West Wiltshire will use the money to rescue and re-home abandoned cats and kittens. Charity chairperson Emma Lord said, “We are sincerely grateful for this generous donation from Waitrose and its customers. In July alone, our team of volunteers were caring for 50 cats. Each animal is checked by a veterinary surgeon and given blood tests to reduce the spread of feline diseases. We also ensure the cats are neutered in an effort to reduce the number of unwanted kittens.
“Once checked, they are placed at one of our local foster homes where they are given love and attention until a prospective new owner steps forward.
“The Waitrose donation will help to cover the costs of veterinary bills, food, cat litter, heating and other expenses. We would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in supporting the charity through volunteering or fundraising. We have lots of opportunities to help at our shop in Bath Road, or people may want to consider providing a foster home for the cats. Others may simply want to organise coffee mornings, raffles and other events which will help to generate much-needed funds. All support is gratefully received.”
