Welcome to Worthing Cat Welfare Trust...

Worthing Cat Welfare Trust has spent the past 19+ years caring for abandoned, sick and distressed cats, organising veterinary treatment, neutering, fostering, re-homing, lost cats etc. all throughout the Worthing district. In order to support these activities, the charity relies solely on donations, legacies and gifts as well as the fund-raising activities of many of its dedicated volunteers.

Happy 20th Anniversary!

This July 2015 sees Worthing Cat Welfare Trust celebrating itís 20th Anniversary. Let us look back over the past 20 years and look to the next 20 years!

The past...

20 years ago the charity was formed by Iris Green and Sandra Collins with a handful of volunteers, £60 pounds in the bank and a large number of cats looking for new homes. Over the years with your support and a lot of hard work we have become recognised as the caring all volunteer based charity which cares more about the cats than promoting itís visual image. Up to now the charity has been run by a small number of trustees all with their own areas of excellence and a number of very reliable and very hard-working fosterers and volunteers.

The present...

As the years have progressed we have accumulated a good proportion of the money in the sanctuary account to purchase a small property where we may be able to build up our sanctuary and re-homing centre, the rest will be temporarily taken from our running account. All the cats looking for new homes, together with all the aspects of the charity, would be able to be kept in one place. Visitors would be welcome to come along and visit their new potential furry family members and many of our permanent cats can run free within the house and gardens for the rest of their lives. This way the charity would become a permanent fixture in the Worthing Area. We have identified a possible property and are now wishing to move forward... We are currently running 2 charity shops, one in West Tarring and one in the Guildbourne Centre. We have come a long way.

But we have all got older!

The future...

We urgently require more members especially those who would like to take an active role in furthering the charity. We need kind people to foster our cats looking for homes until we have a sanctuary up and running. We would like to hear from anyone willing and able to come forward to join us on the board using their special expertise. We would like to hear from anyone willing to back up and enhance the current members of the board of trustees and to take over where and when needed.

THE CHARITY WAS FORMED in July 1995 and granted charity status in October 1995. It consists of a team of very determined and enthusiastic cat lovers, a number of whom have previous experience over many years caring for abandoned, sick and distressed cats, organising veterinary treatment, neutering, fostering, etc., and the fund-raising necessary to support these activities. In 1998, we were very proud to have been Runners Up in the Friskies Petcare Foundation Awards, and we are also very pleased to be accredited to the Feline Advisory Bureau.
