Back in February we featured two gorgeous kittens from Goole and District RSPCA who were looking for a new forever home. Now, as December approaches, we thought we’d try and grant some more feline friends their Christmas wish of a purr-fect family.
Goole & District RSPCA is a registered charity and, while they support and work with the national RSPCA, they are primarily responsible for generating their own funds to help and care for sick, injured and desperate animals in the local area.
The branch is run by a team of volunteers who spend their time fundraising, doing home checks or looking after the animals in their care. The volunteers are extremely dedicated – they even foster cats and kittens in their own homes until they are ready to find their forever families.
Some of the kittens were born in care and others have been rescued by the inspectorate. They are socialised in a fosterer’s home where possible so they become purrfectly playful and sociable cats. The RSPCA do not re-home until kittens are at least eight weeks of age and have had their first vaccinations to ensure they are in the best of health.
Georgina Petty, press officer and volunteer for Goole RSPCA said: ‘The cats and kittens fostered by us are usually unwanted and unloved so they will need considerable time and patience from an understanding owner to allow them to form a strong relationship. To be eligible to view or adopt one of our animals you will first need to have a home visit where an RSPCA-trained home visitor will talk through cat and kitten ownership with you. Giving one of our furry friends a happy home could be the best decision you ever make.’
This pretty one-year-old was found on the streets after recently having what is believed to be her second litter of kittens. Rosa was thin and unsure of people at first but she has been in foster care for several weeks now and is putting on weight and understanding that people look after you and love you.
Her real nature is coming out and she is becoming a very sweet and loving little black cat. Can you give this smart girl the loving secure home she deserves?
And these kittens are looking for a brand new family too:-
Gorgeous Harry likes to sit on your knee and is very playful
Dory is a beautiful kitten looking for a new home
Could you provide a home for lovely little Lilo ?
If you are interested in adopting one of our feline friends you’ll need to organise a home visit. You can arrange one by calling 07599087527 between 9am and 8pm, Monday to Saturday.
Goole RSPCA charges adoption fees of £55 for an adult (over six-months-old) or £70 for a kitten. This fee covers neutering, blood testing, vaccinations (including leukaemia), ID chipping and up-to-date de-fleaing and worming treatments to ensure your new life-long friend gets a purr-fect new start.
