Oh Carol...

Carol CatCarol has been through such a tough time and we really feel she is in need of a fabulous home so she can really understand how good life can be.

We found Carol dumped outside our office concealed in a bag that had been tied and was next to the bins. It is heart-breaking to think that she has endured such cruelness however that was not the end of her story. She was also heavily pregnant at the time and so has had a lot to cope with. She has thankfully come out the other end and is a different cat now. Carol is stunning and becoming a really nice character. We would like a home with plenty of access inside and out with someone who can spoil her rotten. No young children or dogs but she may be okay with another laid back cat.

To find out more about adopting Carol or any of the animals currently with us, please call Nicola on 07772 737 503.

Button About UsWe have celebrated over 75 years of providing welfare for local animals. As well as finding new homes for many unwanted animals each year, we provide a twice weekly veterinary clinic, reduced fee neutering and veterinary help vouchers for people within the community on income support. We are an independent charity and rely wholly on local support to generate funds to enable us to deliver animal welfare. A substantial proportion of our income is generated by our shops in Stroud, Nailsworth, Wotton-under-Edge and Cirencester. We are always looking for people who are willing to help out and for donations of good quality, saleable items. You could really make a difference.

The Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home

The Branch is undertaking a capital appeal to raise £2.5m to build The Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home; find out more on Cotswolds TV.  Once built, the home will provide a safe place for abused, neglected and abandoned animals from across Gloucestershire for many generations to come.  For more information about this exciting project and how you can help build the future for animals in need, simply click here.  To see the local newspaper coverage from the 12th December 2013 (in the Stroud News & Journal) click here.
