The Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre

The CRRC are now entering their busiest time of the year as it is kitten season and no doubt in the next few weeks they will see more and more coming into the Centre. Below are some of the longer term residents they would love to see rehomed soon, so if you can help please do! Thank you. Here is their April newsletter... 

Cat of the Month - Yvonne


Yvonne is a very gorgeous 5 year old long haired tabby female. She is a very loving and friendly girl who loves to sit on laps and even lick you. Yvonne has come back to CRRC twice now because her owners have both said she likes to spend quite alot of time outside. She’s such a lovely girl who is looking to find a understanding home where she can go outside as much as she likes.


Rabbit of the Month - Peppermint


Sadly despite numerous appeals Peppermint is still at CRRC and looking for his forever home.  He is a white 4 year old male neutered rabbit. He was brought into the Centre on the 2nd November 2012 because he was being tormented by dogs. He is a sweet friendly boy with his big blue eyes. Peppermint has been at the centre far too long now and is desperate for a new loving home with a female bunny. Peppermint does have to have his teeth checked every so often but this would be covered by our Foster Care Scheme, which means he can come back and see our vet for his teeth when needed.

Urgently Needed:


Wine bottles for our fantastic fundraising bottle stall.


Cat food sachets for our hungry residents


The CRRC Vet Nurse is running out of cotton wool balls for vet day.


Volunteers Urgently Needed - Towel Cutters


Sadly one of our fantastic volunteers Emma is no longer able to cut towels up for us and her absence has had a huge impact on our supplies.  Towels are cut up in flannel sizes to use in cleaning out the cat pens.  Obviously this job can be done at home so if you have a spare hour please get in touch by email.  


Cake sale raises cash for CRRC


Alina Mcmanus and Ruby Poley from Bourne Community College, held a cake sale on the 23rd  March for their RE Project with their teacher Mr Harper. They raised an amazing £60.52 for the animals here at The Centre. Thank you so much girls.


The ponytail got the chop!!

WELL DONE to both Zoe & Jan who have now tied the knot, congratulations.  Jan lost the ponytail and they managed to raise £650 to be split between CRRC and Kidney Research which is fantastic – A BIG THANK YOU TO BOTH OF YOU AND EVERYONE WHO KINDLY DONATED.
If you have an idea of how to raise money for us please let us know every contribution makes a huge difference.


A cute picture to make you smile!
