Venture Farm Cat Rescue is based in Mattishall in Norfolk. The aim of the Trust is to rescue, care for and rehome cats throughout Norfolk. At any one time there are over 100 cats on the site – some for rehoming and some resident cats that for various reasons (medical, age, behavioural) cannot be rehomed. These cats have a home for life at the sanctuary – they have heated chalets to live in and can wander the grounds freely during the day (or in many cases stay curled up in bed!). We never put a healthy cat to sleep.
We view cats with FIV as a priority and we want to increase public awareness and understanding of this condition with a view to increasing the re-homing percentage of these animals. We have a dedicated pen for these cats with a large garden area, so they can get plenty of exercise. The Trust is run entirely by volunteers. Everyone that helps out either cleaning the cat pens, helping to sort donated goods, gardening, DIY are all volunteers. Even our shop in Dereham is run on a volunteer basis.
One thing that anyone can be sure of when donating to Venture Farm is that every penny goes to the cats!
