About this organisation

Description of charity

We use evidence to guide our practice to improve the situation for cats, wildlife and our community. We stand for transparency in rescue and empower our community to help by informed voting, informed donating, informed adopting and supported volunteering. We aim to make Tasmania no kill while preserving our ecosystem. It can be done.

Summary of activities

We rescued orphaned bottle fed kittens who were too young to feed themselves. We ran a community desex program to help people with barriers to get their cats desexed. We educated the community on the best evidence for managing urban stray cats in Tasmania and how that differs from the mainland because we do not have the fox or dingo and we have proportionally less cleared land. We are striving for a No Kill, No Cruelty Tasmania and call out bad practice that is impeding that progress. We advocate for cats and call for transparency in cat rescue as a vital first step to engaging our community in the issues.

Mission or vision of the charity

We rescue orphaned newborn and neonatal kittens who are unable to feed themselves and would not survive without intervention. We raise them to healthy weight for desex and adoption and find loving homes where they have the best chance of being cared for for the duration of their lives. We promote responsible cat ownership and cat containment. We identify where kittens came from and desex as many owned cats at the source as we can

Programs and activities


What is this?

This graph shows how much revenue (money in) and expenses (money out) the charity has had each year over the last few years. Charities have many sources of revenue, such as donations, government grants, and services they sell to the public. Similarly, expenses are everything that allows the charity to run, from paying staff to rent.

What should I be looking for?

First off, this graph gives a general indication of how big the charity is - charities range in size from tiny (budgets of less than $100,000) to enormous (budgets more than $100 million). You're also looking for variability - if the charity's revenue and expenses are jumping up and down from year to year, make sure there's a good reason for it.

Unlike companies, charities and not-for-profits aren't on a mission to make money. However, if they spend more than they receive, eventually they will go into too much debt and run into trouble. As a very general rule, you want revenue to be slightly above expenses. If expenses is reliably above revenue, the charity is losing money. If revenue is much larger than expenses, it means the charity might not be using its resources effectively. It isn't always that simple, however, and there's a lot of reasons a charity might not follow this pattern. They might be saving up for a big purchase or campaign, or they might have made a big one-off payment. If you're worried, always look at the annual and financial reports to understand why the charity is making the decisions it is.
