Local charity is concerned about their vet bills which are the highest they have ever been after 31 years of running.

Lynn Nicholls CEO of Yorkshire Cat Rescue says “ From January till July we will have spent over £70k. This is likely to be the same for the next half of the year (if not higher as we are taking in more cats) so our overall costs for the year will be well over £150k. We are very worried about what this means for us as we receive no government support and are already struggling to keep up with demands. 

Yorkshire Cat Rescue takes cats in regardless of their ailments or age and won't put any cat to sleep without knowing they have tried everything to save them.So far this year the charity has helped a number of extremely ill cats and spent hundreds, if not thousands of pounds on each one. 

The cost of living crisis is massively impacting the animal welfare sector as a whole,  as people can no longer afford to look after or pay for treatment for their animals and as a result charities are seeing a high increase of animals being put out on the street and left to fend for themselves.

Lynn also says “We so desperately need your continued support to raise £10,000, as  this will give us the chance to clear outstanding bills and put us in credit for the new cats and kittens we have coming into the centre weekly.

Anything you can donate will go straight to our cat's veterinary care and will hopefully give us some room to breathe.”
