Catwomen and men needed

A Rye News volunteer with a rescue cat

The local Branch of the Cats Protection League (CPL) in Iden has been responsible for successfully placing over 2,000 local cats and kittens into “loving forever” homes since opening in 1999. This wonderful effort has been achieved by the dedicated service of a small handful of volunteers, but the numbers have dwindled to the point that the branch may have to close.

If you have a few hours to spare each week and can help to save these desperate animals, many of whom have a very sad history of neglect, homelessness or abuse, please please get in touch. Just three or four dedicated and reliable volunteers giving a couple of hours morning or evening would make such a difference. Contact CPL local co-ordinator Pauline on 01424 754328.
