Cats’ Aid urgently needs new volunteers to assist in our work.
We have reached a crisis situation and if we don’t get some help we may have to cease operations, which would be a shame after thirty years of helping countless hundreds of cats and kittens.
We need help mainly in the following areas: –
Our telephone Helpline. This involves dealing with requests for help with TNR etc. and enquries about homing cats. We need people to take over 1 or 2 days per week to start with. A good telephone manner, patience and tact are needed.
House visits. We always like to visit prospective adopters in their homes, to meet them and to see where the cat would be living. Help with this is needed especially in the inner city and north side.
Emails. This involves responding to email inquiries, passing on queries, etc.
Foster Carers Temporary homes are urgently needed for our kittens and cats.
Transport Bringing cats to and from vets and homes. Delivering traps, etc.
Fundraising People to organize fund-raisers and new ideas for fund raising needed.
If you can help us in any way, please either add your name and contact details to this page and hand it to one of our Core Group, or leave a message on our Helpline on 01 2751665 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please spread the word; we can’t continue without your help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this appeal.
CHRISTMAS GIFT SUGGESTION
Are you looking for a Christmas gift for someone who loves cats? You can sponsor a cat or make a donation to us as a Christmas gift. We can design a personalised Certificate for the recipient. Suggested minimum donation €20. Email email@example.com for further details.
Foster families are always needed for scared and lonely cats and kittens to bring them on so they can have a happy life instead of living in fear under a hedge or shed scrounging for food and being chased away terrified. You may be just one person with a kind heart or a busy family willing to spare some time, depending on the kitty’s needs, but it makes a huge difference to them to send them on their way, well fed and confident into their new life. Can you help them for a relatively short time? If so please call 016683529 and leave a message or email: firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number also.
Cats Aid are delighted to say we now have a text donate option. We are hoping this means we can reach out and help even more cats in Ireland. If you love cats and would you like to help stray cats in Ireland then please text LOVE to 50300 to donate €4 to Cats Aid. Every cent we receive goes towards helping unwanted and abandoned cats. We do not take a salary.
Without the generous support of our followers we could not continue.

Coppers for the kitties!!
Anyone out there with lots of loose coppers thrown in a jar that you don’t want? We have a home for them!
We would love if you could donate them to us to help the kitties.
All you have to do is bring them along to either of the following this weekend –
Next Friday 30th and Saturday 1st we are bag packing in Supervalu, Malahide then also on the Saturday we have our Autumn Fair in Raheny. (All Saints Church of Ireland Rectory Hall, beside Watermill Rd., oppposite Supervalu and near Raheny Dart Station.)
We will count them, bag them and use them wisely.
Thank you for your support 🙂
IMPORTANT NOTICE In light of the recent controversy about Charities, Cats’ Aid would like to once again reassure our supporters that all donations received go directly to benefit the cats in our care. We are an entirely voluntary group with no paid staff. We don’t have premises and our adminsitration costs are kept to an absolute minimum. Our accounts are independently audited each year and are available for inspection. We are very grateful for your on-going support; please continue to help us to help the cats. Thank you.
Cats’ Aid has a number of cats in our care at present that are nervous and timid. We are looking for experienced people to foster them on a temporary basis or to offer them permanent homes. These cats probably wouldn’t suit busy family homes with young children and it would be preferable that the cats wouldn’t be left alone all day.
If you think that you fit this ‘profile’ please phone our Helpline 6683529 and leave a message on our voice mail or email email@example.com.
In either case please give your location and an evening phone number.
Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney TD launches Irish Pet Advertising Advisory Group (IPAAG) Minimum Standards for online classified advertising websites.
On 15th April 2015 leading Irish animal welfare organisations, representatives from the veterinary profession and websites advertising pets for sale launched the ground breaking and progressive IPAAG Minimum Standards at the Mansion House, Dublin. This major initiative will improve the welfare of the thousands of pets advertised online on a weekly basis.
IPAAG introduced a set of minimum standards for websites to ensure that the welfare of animals sold online is protected and that any illegal activity is identified and investigated. In addition to providing standards for the online advertising of animals for sale, IPAAG will also provide an opportunity for the buyer to be educated on what criteria to use to identify a responsible breeder. Online websites that comply with the standards will provide links to www.ipaag.ie,which will include information for the safe purchase of healthy dogs, cats, equines and exotic animals.
You can find out more about the work of the IPAAG at http://ipaag.ie
