Pleased, PLEASE, help.
Our shops have had to close due to the current Coronavirus outbreak. These shops are our lifeline and all of our 100+ animals lifelines because it is through them that we can generate money to help feed and care for all of the animals in our care. Without this income we will struggle to provide the care these animals need. PLEASE HELP US, HELP THEM!
We offer advice and support to the general public, in particular the elderly, on all animal welfare issues. We rescue animals in urgent need, and try where possible, to find them a new caring home.
Where this is not possible, we run a sanctuary to offer a lifelong home to animals which for one reason or another are difficult, or impossible to re-home.
We support the general public with their pets, offering transport to the vets, grants towards vets bills and helping people re-home pets they can no longer look after, through illness or relocation.
Powys Cat Rescue was officially formed in 2002, with the opening of the first fund raising shop in Newtown, Powys. It became known as Powys Animal Welfare, a registered charity (C.N 1098246) in 2003 to acknowledge the fact that we do not only help cats and kittens, but can offer help and advice on the welfare of all animals from cats and dogs, to birds, sheep and even horses.
Over the past few years it has become apparent to us that it is elderly people who often need help with their much loved pets and so the Trustees have made the decision to direct their help to this particular sector. This includes helping when people have been hospitalised and need temporary support or when sadly people are no longer able to care for their pets, through long term illness or even death.
