Here in Leeds (Wharfe Valley CP branch), we're facing a huge number and increase in the number of unwanted cats and kittens in our area. Our sister branch has recently closed, adding pressure to our already pushed branch and volunteers. Another 3 independant rescues have also closed and we're facing a disaster if something isn't done soon. Our closest city Bradford doesn't have a Cats Protection branch either and we often find ourselves covering that area as well. We are appealing to Cats Protection head office to fund a new shelter here in Leeds so that our dedicated and loyal volunteers can continue their work. Imagine if we could help so many more cats and kittens in the area!
