HONITON: Cat charity to move to new premises
Thursday, 27 February 2014
Honiton Cats Protection are on the move to a new shop in the town.
The charity shop first set up a shop in Honiton 10 years ago and have already moved to bigger premises once. Now they are on the move again to 116 High Street.
Co-ordinator Elizabeth Manley said: “The shop is our main source of income to pay the veterinary bills that are inevitable to ensure that the cats and kittens we rehome have the best start in their new life.
“We are very excited to be able to expand into new premises as we will be able to offer more choice to shoppers, and so raise the ongoing funds we need.
“We will still have our office in the shop, which is a great contact point to get information about the cats we have looking for homes, as well as reporting lost or found cats. We’re really looking forward to welcoming new volunteers and shoppers to our new place!”
The shop will be officially opened at 4pm on Friday, March 7th attended by local MP Neil Parish and the Lord Mayor, with assistance from the Town Crier.
To find out more about the new shop, becoming a volunteer or to offer a cat a home, call 01404 45241 or visit the website at www.honit-on.cats.org.uk.
Honiton Cats Protection has been running since 1990.
Last year the branch rehomed 60 cats and kittens and helped a further 214 through neutering, returning lost cats to their owners and microchipping. A number of these were from feral and farm colonies, through a subsidised service.
