Rescue A Cat Inc. - Our Purpose
R.A.C.I. is a not-for-profit incorporated association run by volunteers. Our purpose is to:
1. Care for the health and wellbeing of stray, abandoned and surrendered cats through offering a network of foster-carers.
2. Provide an adoption/placement network.
3. Inform potential adoption families about responsible pet ownership.
4. Assist in the education of the general public on the importance of de-sexing cats and kittens.
All cats and kittens re-homed through R.A.C.I. are Vet checked, de-sexed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and wormed. The funds we receive as donations and adoption proceeds go towards veterinary fees, cat food and accessories for the cats and kittens we foster.
We are occasionally contacted by members of the public asking for assistance with re-homing their own cat(s) or kitten(s), as some people are hesitant to take them to a shelter or pound for the purpose of re-homing.
We are set up as a small rescue group that fosters abandoned and stray cat(s) and/or kitten(s) which may come to us via shelters or vets, and as such we are unfortunately unable to take on any cats and/or kittens from owners looking to re-home them.
Rescue A Cat Inc. regards cats and kittens as true family members and therefore see their care as a life long commitment. However if you think that your lifestyle is going to change to the point where you are no longer be able to care for your pet in your own home environment, you should allow plenty of time to find them another suitable loving permanent home.
To assist, we have set out some suggestions for how to go about re-homing your own cat(s) and/or kitten(s) on our Education Page under ‘Suggestions for Owner needing to Re-home their pet’.
