How PPCT grants are helping two smaller charities cope with vets’ bills

"Vets' bills are our major expense."

Smaller animal charities have had it particularly tough this year.

Yet these charities do vital work within their local communities thanks to the extraordinary dedication of their founders, helpers and supporters.

Based in Oxfordshire, Sunshine Cat Rescue provides care for both cats and kittens in need. Many need veterinary care which, according to Sharon Carbonero, is the charity’s major expense. The charity also endeavours to reduce the number of unwanted felines at large in the local area through a programme of neutering.

Refuge4Pets provides a pet fostering service to the victims/survivors of domestic abuse in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. According to the charity, the animals are often targeted by the abusers as a way to intimidate and control their partners and children.
