Sponsor a Cat

The vast majority of the cats that come into our care will find themselves the wonderful new homes that every cat so deserves. However some of the cats that come to us have special requirements that mean they need special attention. In some cases they have physical issues and require ongoing medication. In other cases their previous lives have left them psychologically scarred and so they have behavioral issues. And then there are those cats who are extremely elderly and who deserve a proper home in their twilight years rather than a life at the Shelter.

These cats remain in the care of Lothian Cat Rescue and are permanently fostered by one of our dedicated volunteers. This way each cat gets the individual care, love and attention that it deserves whilst Lothian Cat Rescue continues to help with upkeep and veterinary costs. You can help us continue to keep these cats safe by becoming a sponsor. Pictures of each current sponsor cat are shown below and more information on each of these beauties can be found be clicking here.

What do you get?

As a sponsor you will receive a certificate and photo of your chosen cat(s), details of their history and twice-yearly updates on their progress, as well as our regular newsletters. It is up to you how much you give - you can either send a cheque for at least £30 per cat for a one year sponsorship, or set up a monthly standing order of at least £3 per month per cat. We do our very best to issue all sponsorship packs within two weeks of receipt of your completed form.

How do you become a sponsor?

If you would like to become a sponsor, or perhaps you would like to sponsor a cat as a gift for a friend or relative, please click here for our New Sponsor application form. Please print and return this to the Sponsor Secretary at address shown on that form. Cheques and Postal Orders should be made payable to Lothian Cat Rescue.

If you decide to pay by standing order please click here for a mandate form. Please complete this and send to your bank - we unfortunately cannot set up a standing order on your behalf.
