The festive season is a time to celebrate and to spend precious time with family and friends.  It’s a time to count our blessings and to help others that are less fortunate than ourselves where we can.

If you would like to support cats in need, there are many ways that you can do this.  As a new and fast growing charity, we would really value your help.

  • Are you looking to adopt a cat or find a feline friend and live in Surrey or Sussex?  Please visit our Rehome page, where you can see some of the cute cats at Felines 1st looking for a loving home.
  • Could you financially support the work that Felines 1st does to ensure that no cat is left alone or vulnerable this Christmas?  Regular donations will enable us to ensure that this continues in the New Year.  Please contact info@felines1st.org
  • Are you able to donate your time?  We need people to help us with Volunteering and Fundraising.
  • Donations of wet and dry food are welcomed as they help Felines 1st support local strays and homeless cats and kittens. These can be dropped off in the food bin upstairs in Pets at Home / Vets for Pets in Crawley.
  • Support us when you shop for your Christmas presents on Amazon and with Easy Fundraising.
  • Help cats just by talking about us.  A mention to friends and family may be the catalyst that changes the luck for one of the abandoned cats that do not have a warm bed at night with a loving family to look after them.

From everyone at Felines 1st, we wish you a very happy and peaceful festive season. Thank you for your support!
