Sunshine Cat Rescue

In 2012 when a national cat rescue charity closed its West Oxfordshire branch, several of the volunteers started Sunshine Cat Rescue. SCR is run entirely by volunteers, totally dependent upon its own fundraising to maintain and run the charity. The charity’s aim is to reduce the suffering of cat/kittens in need of care by providing shelter until new homes are found. While based in Oxfordshire we have no centre and all the felines in our care are with volunteer fosterers who take the animals into their own homes all over the county.

All cats and kittens which Sunshine Cat Rescue cares for are neutered prior to being re-homed. In the case of very young kittens, they are re-homed on condition that the new owner arranges for the kitten to be neutered at the appropriate age. Feral cats which the charity becomes involved with are trapped and neutered before being released back into the area where they were found. Neutering is the most effective way of reducing the number of unwanted cats/kittens roaming the area, thereby helping to provide a safer environment for the general public who are less at risk of coming into contact with potentially aggressive feral and disease-ridden animals.

It is with great sadness that we post to let you know June Brind unexpectedly passed away on Sunday.
June and her late husband Sid have been such wonderful supporters of our rescue since the late 90s and we will really miss her.
June has been a lovely fosterer and many of you will have met her when you adopted a kitty.
All of June’s family and friends are in our thoughts during this sad time.
Thank you June for all you did for SCR and all the kitties you had in your care over the years.
You are already sorely missed.

Barclays Bank felt the need to set us up a new current account, which is now active.   If you have a regular payment to SCR via a standing order, whether for the 200 Club or as a donation, or sponsorship payment, please cancel the payment to sort code 20 – 97 – 48 and set up a new standing order.   Please contact me for the new account details –

I still haven’t been able to contact several of the generous people out there who support SCR via regular payment, so can’t ask you all personally.

Thank you – hope to hear from you.   Best wishes and thanks to everyone for your continued support in these challenging times.
