Adopt Don’t Shop
Christmas seems to be the season of buying: presents, food, decorations.
BCWR does not advocate the buying of any animals as presents, and therefore our last re-homing weekend will be next weekend, 8th December.
BCWR prides itself on re-homing cats and kittens, and matching them with their new families.
We do not sell animals. When we re-home, we ask for a minimum donation of £45 for a cat and £75 for a kitten. This is a contribution towards their care during their time at the shelter, a vet check, first vaccinations, neutering, microchip and a reduced fee for their second vaccination. We also provide 5 weeks free insurance. The minimum donation does not cover the additional care and vet bills very often needed, which can run into thousands of pounds, depending on the health on arrival. This is not reflected in the adoption donation.
