We are run entirely by volunteers – meet the team behind the cats 🙂
Our founders: From left to right: Carole, Annie, Stewart and Claire. Our trustees set up MK Cat Rescue in 2015, and each has a unique role to play: Carole has been fostering cats for over 15 years and has a well established excellent reputation with local vets for providing a high standard of care to cats that are in our care. Annie fosters cats in her cat pens but is also our Treasurer, making sure that every penny raised counts and helps cats of MK. Stewart has been rescuing stray cats for over 20 years and has considerable experience in safely trapping cats that are scared or injured. Claire is our administrator and welfare officer, working tirelessly to ensure that stray cats are brought into foster as soon as we can and liaises with the media team, as well as working with the volunteers in the homing and welfare team. All four of our Trustees are out there day and night helping the cats of MK and aren’t alone:
Within our homing team are a team of amazing fosterers who, when they can, look after our cats in care day-in, day-out. We also have a small team of cat-workers who go out to reported lost or abandoned cats.
Chris leads our fundraising committee looking for ways to raise money including events, raffles, our new 50/50 club and more. We have an amazing team of fundraisers who help us to collect donated items, attend events, bake goodies for sale, and more.
Our media team is run by Sarah who manages our social media and website and works to increase our profile in the community, so we can help as many cats as our resources allow. We have a team of social media administrators who help to answer messages and post on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Sarah is also our volunteer coordinator, so if you want to work with us get in touch and she’ll give you a call.
