It’s the middle of the freezing Melbourne winter, we’re isolating, and we all want to be warm inside rugged up in bed with our pets. Some animals aren’t lucky enough at the moment to be a part of a home where they are loved and warm during these hard times.

We know how many homeless and unloved animals there are, but what a lot of people don’t realise is how common this is in their own areas.

Just this past July, it came to light that a group of hungry, cold and undesexed cats and kittens were residing by the Merri Creek, abandoned by their owners when they needed them the most. Some of these animals are too young to be outside in such conditions, the chance of their survival is low and after investigation of their circumstance we realised we needed to find proper homes for all of these babies as soon as possible.

These cats need love, they need families, vet care and above all they need to be desexed. The core issue of unwanted animals in Australia is the overbreeding of so many dogs and cats.

A beautiful pensioner is currently paying for all these cats food and she has been keeping them alive by allowing them to feed and water. She saw that these cats were abandoned and wanted to help them. Now we want to help them too. We are so grateful for this woman who out of the kindness in her heart has used the little she has to probably save these guys lives.

It isn’t up to this lady to care for all these abandoned cats however. And if they aren’t desexed, the situation will very much worsen. Newborn kittens cannot survive this cold.

Our goal is to capture these cats, get them the full veterinary care they need and place them into homes where they can experience love and warmth like they should have always received.

They are too little, too precious, to be out in the Brunswick winter. All animals deserve a loving home.

We need donations to vet these babies, to place them into foster care and provide their carers with crates and food so they can slowly be integrated and learn what it is to be loved. There may be upwards of 15-20 cats that all need to be desexed, and this process is costly.

We want to save these angels. They’re out there now in this harsh weather, unloved and without a home and we really want to change that. The help of our Brunswick community and surrounds will allow us to save their lives.

If you can help with any donation to make this rescue happen, and if you know anyone who would love to provide a home for one of these sweet cats, please get in touch.

Keep an eye out for those animals that need you the most, don’t breed and buy while the homeless die! We want to save lives, if it’s in your means to help us reach this goal it would mean more to us and these creatures than you could ever know! Please donate and share our plea!

(All funds will go to the vet care and the process of rescuing and rehoming these cats. All remaining funds will go into the continued rescue of future abandoned animals.)
