Community and education activities
We regularly welcome (when safe to do so) the local community to the shelter to see and experience first-hand the environment where our cats live and in some cases, freely roam. We are also committed to providing advice and education on all aspects of cat care and wellbeing.
The Shropshire Cat Rescue Centre provides a wonderful visitor experience where you can meet and greet our feline residents and learn all about the work of the charity and the care and services we provide to cats in need in the local area.
We are also dedicated to supporting the public to learn more about all aspects of cat care and use our social media channels as well as face to face events to provide vital cat wellbeing education advice.
We cover all elements of cat welfare from meeting cats’ welfare needs, tips on grooming, diet and exercise and preventive care through to how to identify stray cats and how fulfilling it can be to adopt cats.
We welcome veterinary students for placement, support youngsters on the Duke of Edinburgh award and we also have children’s Book Buddies which educates children on pet ownership.
