Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue’s event promises something for everyone and features a wide range of crafters exhibiting their wares for sale and offering buyers a perfect opportunity to pick up unusual, handmade, one off gifts for that special someone in the lead up to Christmas.

Co Founder Sarah Ross says “we have worked very hard to ensure a balanced and varied range of crafts at this event to ensure a wide selection of wares for the public to peruse.  Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue is a local charity and we would like to bring something different to the town for people to enjoy”

Throughout the afternoon you will have the opportunity to have a reading from our guest Clairvoyants and learn what 2013 may have in store for you.  Our Clairvoyants are travelling near and far to join us for this fantastic event, with the goal of raising critical funding for our new cat rescue centre.

Sarah says “Interest has already been high for clairvoyant readings and we are advising that visitors to the event arrive for 1pm sharp to book their reading to avoid disappointment”

What is the Feline Fund?

28 Aug

The Feline Fund is the name Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue have given to our project to raise the capital needed to purchase land and begin building works to create our very own purpose built cat rescue centre within a radius of approximately 20 miles of our current location in Fife, to secure the future welfare of the ever increasing stray cat population in the Fife, Edinburgh and Lothian regions.

Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue primarily serve the Fife, Lothian and Edinburgh areas, however we regularly take in cats in desperate need of help ‘out of area’ from Oban to Glasgow and even as far south as Birmingham, where there has been a need for our specialist care.

Sadly, despite over 2 decades of sending out the Neutering message there continues to be an alarming increase in the number of cats in need of help and the problem is getting bigger with every year that passes.  The volume of stray cats wandering our streets is forever increasing and more and more people are looking for help in rehoming their cats or kittens. Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue’s currently limited resources are struggling to cope with the deluge of new cases that arrive every day.

This is a much needed resource in the area and without it, animal welfare, particular for cats is going to revert back a few decades in level of care, disease and volume of stray cats.

Joey - Just one of the cats that Sunny Harbour have fought desperately to save, only to be lost to Rainbow Bridge as we got to him too late.

At the current time we have to turn away approximately 20 – 40 people a week who are looking for homes for their cats due to a wide range of circumstances, simply because we do not have the facilities or room to help as we are at full capacity 90% of the year

By putting in place a purpose built facility we will be able to create essential spaces to help these families and cats in need without having to turn them away simply due to lack of facilities.  We will be able to provide dedicated facilities and areas for post natal and intensive nursing care as well as rehabilitation of cats with severe behavioural problems.

As part of the expansion we will also be looking to include education on animal welfare for local children’s groups and schools through talks and inviting the children to the centre to learn what rescue work entails and how to responsible care for a pet.  Extend our volunteer programs and work with local vets and the veterinary school to provide trainee vets with insight into how rescue truly work as well as enabling hands on experience in the hope of enriching their start to a veterinary career
