Due to the coronavirus lockdown all our shops are closed for the moment.  We do not yet know when we will be able to reopen - we will have to follow Government advice.

If you're having a clear out, please keep your donated goods safe and we will tell you when it is safe to donate again.  

Thank you for your support at this difficult time.

Donations are what we need.  Without these we would not exist !!

If you are revamping or de-cluttering your home or clearing out a wardrobe then we will gratefully accept your unwanted items. This can be a car load or just a few items, all of which will raise vital funds required for the running costs at Yorkshire Cat Rescue. All donations are welcome (with a few exceptions, listed at the bottom of this page). If we, for some reason, are unable to sell a donated item we ensure to recycle these whenever it is possible.

If you are a UK taxpayer you can make a Gift Aid declaration so that when we sell your items we can apply Gift Aid and raise an extra 25%.  Please ask our staff for details when you donate.

We collect items for free if you have too many to carry and no means of transport or if you want to donate a small piece of furniture. All we need you to do is contact the shop that is within your area. 

Our shop staff are happy for you to drop your donations off at our shops. There is a free parking area outside our Keighley shop for loading and unloading.

Whilst Yorkshire Cat Rescue is extremely grateful for all donations regrettably there are certain items we can not accept. This is as we are legally unable to sell them or there is no market for the items any longer and we would have to dispose of them at a cost to the charity.

If a donor has any queries then they can contact a member of the team who will gladly help.
