Founded and run by a team of dedicated volunteers, local charity MK Cat Rescue has been proudly helping to give Milton Keynes’ cats a second chance for two years.
“We had a vision to set up a local cat charity, where all funds raised went entirely on helping cats, and putting them first. Every penny helps cats in need,” said Claire Henesy, Secretary and Welfare Officer. “We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but we want to do even more!”
Claire is one of the founding trustees, along with Annie, Stewart and Carole, who between them have almost 40 years’ experience helping stray or unwanted cats. They work with a wonderful team of volunteers throughout the city to raise funds, help cats in need, provide foster care, and re-home.
MK Cat Rescue has so far rehomed over 140 cats and kittens, including ferals, and pregnant and nursing queens. They’ve also connected with UK-wide network to rehome senior cats and FIV+ cats, with significant success.
“We’d like to thank the cat-lovers of Milton Keynes for their donations over the past two years,” says Claire. “Thanks to them, we’ve been able to give so many cats the care they deserve.”
