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
