Welcome to C-L-A-W-S
Animal cruelty can take many forms (physical violence, emotional abuse and life-threatening neglect are daily realities for many cats but the most common of these are abandonment and neglect.)
You will see these trends reflected as you read the stories of our resident cats.
Rehabilitating them calls for great commitment often over a long period of time, years even. Patience, persistence in the face of what sometimes seem insuperable odds, the ability to interact with the cats and interpret their behaviour are just some of the qualities needed. It is challenging, frustrating but very rewarding.
C.L.A.W.S. has always worked with old, infirm and abused cats but most of their work involved taking in and re-homing cats and kittens.
The influx of abused cats in 2014 changed its focus since when it has evolved into a refuge for those underprivileged members of the feline race which other cat charities will not help
If you would like to sponsor one of these cats
