A Cornish cat rescue has been forced to temporarily close its doors after facing mounting vet bills.
Sue’s Cat Rescue based near Redruth takes in stray and unwanted cats before finding new and permanent loving homes. Many of the cats need veterinary treatment such as neutering or life-saving surgery before being rehomed.
The organisation is appealing to the public for help to pay the ever-increasing vet bills and has set up an online JustGiving page.
A message on the site reads: “Sue’s Cat Rescue has had to make the heartbreaking decision to temporarily close its doors – a dreadful decision to have to make knowing that so many are desperately in need but we have to try and get this vets bill down before it runs away to a point that we can’t – which would jeopardise the future of Sue’s Cat Rescue.
“It’s dreadful to think of desperate cats having to be denied their one chance based on money alone. With more and more cats desperately needing Sue’s help the vets bill is currently accelerating through the thousands which is an enormous worry.”
