Special Needs Cats

Here at Heronbank Cat Rescue we have a variety of cats with complex needs which therefore need very special homes.  Please keep reading to see how you can help.


Would you consider sponsoring one of or special needs cats? These are cats who have injuries or illnesses which mean they need to spend a long time in the rescue. All of these cats are a significant drain on our resources but we believe they are just as entitled to love and care as every other cat. Some may need expensive operations, others are on long term medication, some have to have special diets. Please read our cat’s stories and consider sponsoring one of them. Sponsorship can be done on a monthly standing order or by donating a larger lump sum. This money will go directly into our Special Needs cat fund and will contribute directly to helping the cat of your choice.

Sponsors will also receive a certificate of sponsorship with the story of their chosen cat. 

Please pay via PayPal on Heronbankrescue@kittymail.com using the family and friends option and quoting sponsorship and the cats name, or Contact us for the Rescue’s bank details. We are grateful for sponsorship of our cats and kittens. Sponsors will receive updates regularly.
