Cat charity shock after finding ‘discarded’ cat and kittens in Mansfield Skip


Mansfield Adoption Centre, a branch of UK charity Cats Protection, located on Mansfield Road, was established in 1996 and has been a focus for cat lovers in the area ever since.

The center currently has 15 rescued cat pens and a long waiting list of over 100 cats in need of forever homes.

Jane Holt, head of the adoption center, said she feared the figure could be even higher, as many cat owners are in dire need of support and said they could no longer afford to. expect.

Ru and Paul were rescued from a Mansfield dumpster.

The branch has issued a stern appeal to cat owners not to dump cats on the street, after they rescued an abandoned cat and two kittens from a dumpster behind Subway on Leeming Street, Mansfield.

The tomcat – now named Danny La Rue – and two kittens – Ru and Paul – are being cared for at the centre.

“We can offer a range of support to people in all sorts of circumstances, so they don’t feel like they have to abandon their cats just like that.

“Unfortunately we were alerted to a cat and two kittens who had been dumped in a dumpster behind Subway in Mansfield.

“They were found by a member of the public who contacted us to see if we could help.

“One kitten was in a carrier bag and the other had made its way into the wheel arch of a nearby car.

“It is a heartbreaking situation, but the cat and kittens are in good shape and have joined our residents at the centre, all in need of forever homes.

“We are a self-funded center and responsible for all our veterinary and operating costs.

“All donations are essential to take care of the cats in our care.”

To find out more about the support available from the center – from vet bills to microchips – cat owners are advised to call the team on 01623 845846.
