give a pet a HOME

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

DID you know that most un­wanted an­i­mals which are turned in are de­stroyed? For more than 20 years, the ded­i­cated vol­un­teers at Small Paws on Seil have saved thou­sands of un­for­tu­nate cats and kit­tens from that fate by res­cu­ing them and find­ing lov­ing for­ever homes. They re­ceive no pub­lic fund­ing, in­stead re­ly­ing on vol­un­teers, do­na­tions and fundrais­ing ef­forts. Open from 9am to 1pm, Mon­day- Satur­day, Small Paws wel­comes prospec­tive cat own­ers to come have a cud­dle with the cats on site – you just may find that a cat will choose you rather than the other way round. New own­ers are asked to agree to a home check, and a min­i­mum do­na­tion of £ 30 for each cat or kit­ten is ap­pre­ci­ated. Cats make fan­tas­tic pets. There are eight mil­lion pet cats in the UK, with 17 per cent of house­holds hav­ing one.

Small Paws in Balvicar, which res­cues and re-homes cats, kit­tens and small an­i­mals, is run­ning a re-hom­ing drive, to try to find families for furry friends.
