Our New Centre

“Everyone who visits our centre will take away a better understanding of Shropshire Cat Rescue’s work.

They will learn about the commitment required to keep animals in the right conditions, and how the numbers of animals coming into rescue can be reduced.

Most importantly, they will appreciate how animals can enrich our lives.”

Our Big Plan

BUY up to 10 acres of land, preferably close to Shrewsbury

RELOCATE to this bigger site from our current base at Lyth Hill

BUILD a new centre for our animal and human friends
This will allow us to:

EXPAND our animal welfare and call-out rescue support

DEVELOP our work to educate on responsible pet ownership

PROVIDE more education and community programmes to promote mutual well-being, understanding, and respect between people and animals

Our new centre will have

RESCUE PENS for cats to stay while they are waiting for new homes

NURSERY to give the youngest cats a good start in life

HOSPITAL to provide on-site facilities for visiting vets

RETIREMENT VILLAGE for elderly and disabled cats to live comfortable lives whilst interacting with visitors to the centre

FIELDS and ENCLOSURES for rabbits, guinea pigs, ponies and sheep

COMMUNITY HUB providing space for a seasonal programme of public events, and for rent by local artists, craftspeople and musicians
