East Harling cat rescue centre faces closure

A cat rescue centre in Norfolk faces closure unless it can raise £70,000 by the end of September.

Feline Care in East Harling homes up to 140 cats at a time and was set up as a cat retirement home by its owners Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre in Sussex.

The Sussex charity says it no longer wants the responsibility of running the Norfolk centre and has offered Feline Care the chance to keep it open.

This means the management now has to find money for the centre and the land.

Centre manager Molly Farrar said: "This news has hit us hard as we are already working flat out and running at full capacity but we know there must be enough people out there who can club together to save us.

"So far we've had just over £19,000 donated and have been amazed at the generosity of those around us and I can't thank everyone enough for what they're doing to help us."

As well as re-homing domestic cats, Feline Care traps and neuters feral cats.

If the sanctuary does have to close, its cats will be moved to the Sussex centre.
