Celia Hammond Animal Trust rescues and homes cats in need, and offers low cost veterinary treatment to those whose owners cannot afford private veterinary fees but do not qualify for help from the major charities.
The Celia Hammond Animal Trust (CHAT) provides care and refuge for cats and kittens, both feral and domestic, and for those animals which on the basis of age, temperament or appearance would not normally be taken in elsewhere. CHAT aims to humanely reduce the population of dogs and cats, both pedigree and mongrel in the U.K by neutering as opposed to the current situation where hundreds of thousands of healthy but unwanted or stray animals are being destroyed simply because there are not enough homes to go around. CHAT provides low cost neutering and veterinary treatment in our two veterinary clinics for sick or injured animals whose owners do not qualify for help from the major charities but who cannot afford private veterinary fees. The Trust has a strict non-destruction policy unless animals are suffering with a terminal illness or are hopelessly injured and beyond any veterinary help.
