Felines 1st is comprised entirely of volunteers.  This ensures that our charity costs are kept to a minimum and that the money you donate is used to care for the cats we rescue and rehome.  A very big thank you from the cats and Felines 1st volunteers for any support you can offer us.

Single donations:

Send a text using the word FELINES followed by your chosen amount (between £1 and £20) to 70085.  To donate £10, text: “FELINES 10” to 70085.  Your text will cost the amount you donate plus your standard network charge.  To opt out of marketing communications when donating, instead text “FELINESNOINFO 10” to 70085.  To add gift aid, click on the link in the return text and enter your details.

Regular donations:

Regular donations are very valuable as they allow us to know how many cats Felines 1st can support on a monthly basis and this enables us to support more cats.

To donate £2 every month, text CATMONTHLY to 70085.  Texts cost £2 plus two standard rate messages and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS.  If you’d like to give £2 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text CATMONTHLYNOINFO to 70085.  To add gift aid, click on the link in the return text and enter your details.  You are free to cancel this at anytime and can do this by texting STOP to 70085.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to arrange a regular payment from your bank account, please email website@felines1st.org for more details.
