News from Farnham Cats Protection Summer 2013

E-mail sent by Tandy Murphy, Sunday, 18th August 2013 @ 2:53pm

Bob’s story

Quite a lot of the cats we help do not appear on the website. Bob was a cat like this. Christine, as usual, checked through her many emails one day in May, and found one reporting a stray white cat, without a tail, and in a bad condition, at Aldershot Barracks. 

Diane sped over there to meet the worried man who had reported it. Between them they were able to catch the cat which was obviously very hungry indeed. A trip to the vet showed that the tail had been surgically removed, assumably after an accident of some sort, and that his owners had had him microchipped. 

Using the chip number Diane was able to trace the address to Elvetham Heath in Fleet and contacted the owners. Bob had been missing for a month and the owners were ecstatic to see him again.   They had adopted him from the RSPCA ten years earlier although his tail had been removed before they had him. How he got to Aldershot Barracks is anyone’s guess.

It is really nice to have a happy ending and all thanks to that little microchip.

Summer Fayre - 1st September - Volunteers needed

E-mail sent by Amanda Clark, Tuesday, 6th August 2013 @ 9:19am

Tandy is kindly holding the Summer Fayre at her house again (near Farnham).  Its a great opportunity to raise money for the Branch, meet other volunteers, potential adopters and have some fun.

We're looking for volunteers to-
distribute fliers before the fayre
tell friends and family about the day and encourage attendance
organise and run a stall on the day

If you know any one that runs their own business e.g. crafts, party packs etc then we are happy for them to run their own stall at the event. All we ask for is a donation from them.

The more the merrier!

The actual event will run from 12pm to 3pm but you need to allow for setup/cleanup times before and after.

If you can help or have any questions, please contact amanda_e_clark@hotmail.com and

tandy@sirmoor.co.uk.

Even if you can't attend, please do spread the word about the event.  We'll send through more details (including her address!) in the next week or so.

Thanks

Amanda

CAN YOU HELP PLEASE!!!!

We have just had 4 cats abandoned outside one of our fosterers front doors. This isn't funny.
We have nowhere for them to go and at least 5 more urgent ones to bring in on Tuesday. We desperately need more fosterers please :(


To be a fosterer you need a spare room that can be used to keep the foster cats safe and separate. All equipment, food and litter is provided.
There is some basic information on volunteering here: http://farnhamcats.co.uk/how-to-help/help-wanted/, plus a volunteer enquiry form (linked at the bottom of the page above).
You can also simply email weyvalleycats@gmail.com and someone will be in touch to have a chat.
Or just email tandy@sirmoor.co.uk

News from Farnham Cats Protection - Autumn/Winter 2012

E-mail sent by Tandy Murphy, Wednesday, 21st November 2012 @ 11:41am

It has been a tough summer for Farnham and Wey Valley CP with a record number of cats and kittens coming into our care and low adoption rates. This pattern is being repeated on a national scale with organisations such as the RSPCA reporting the same problem.

Over the last three months, 72 cats and kittens have been adopted from the branch with an encouraging 35 being adopted in September; this is the highest for the year, but unfortunately it is not a continuing trend and there are still many cats needing homes and waiting to come into the branch.

On a positive note we are very grateful to Pets at Home who have given us a generous grant of £7640. This will make a huge difference to the branch. We are also hugely grateful for the kind support from you, our supporters and volunteers, without whose valuable time and expertise, none of it would be possible!

Appeal for raffle prizes for Farnham Cats Protection

E-mail sent by Louisa Bird, Friday, 28th September 2012 @ 5:19pm

An appeal to our valued volunteers and supporters

We have a number of events coming up in the run-up to Christmas where we will have the opportunity to hold raffles to raise much-needed funds. Not least of these are several awareness and fundraising events coming up throughout October at the Pets At Home store in Farnham.

If you have any new items and/or unwanted gifts (chocolates, bottles, smellies, cat-related items, etc.) that you would be willing to donate to the branch as raffle prizes, please reply to this email to let us know and to arrange delivery/collection. All gift-type items would be very gratefully received.

We are also short of helpers at fundraising events generally, so if you are interested in helping out for a few hours here and there (mainly at the weekends), and you are not already on the list of fundraising helpers (or you're not sure whether or not you are!), please let us know.

Thanks as ever for your kind support.
Louisa
on behalf of Farnham and Wey Valley Cats Protection
