7th Heaven's October Feral Cat Month - each year

We continue to highlight the plight of feral cats through our annual Feral Cat Month in October. Feral cats are frequently ignored, considered pests and treated very cruelly by some here. During October, cat food donated to us will be used to feed feral/community cats throughout Northern Ireland. Donations received will be used to buy them food and shelter. Our ongoing Project Wildcat Scheme provides waterproof shelters where possible, pet food and help with the cost of neutering.

Global Feral Cat Day - Oct 16 each year

We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the plight of these poor, unfortunate, unwanted, and for many, unloved animals. To everyone who helps them in any way, from feeding them, providing shelter, caring for them, neutering them - a big thank you on their behalf. Let's all take time out from our busy lives to think about them. try to place yourself in their paws on this day - how would you feel to be homeless, cold and don't know where your next morsel of food will come from? What if you are ill and can't fend for yourself? Just take some time to reflect - are they really so bad for people to want to kill them, day in and day out? It's not their fault they are in this situation. Please take time to help them, stop cruelty and don't just turn the other way.

Daisy Day, 24 December

Have you a moment to spare on Christmas Eve? We at 7th Heaven are asking you to take a few moments out of your busy schedule on this day to remember all the innocent animal victims of war. We are planning to make this day an annual event in remembrance of them. We have chosen the daisy as it symbolises innocence and, like the animal victims of war, they are numerous and always overlooked. So please, take a few moments out to say a prayer or just spare a thought for them on this day. Perhaps you could link into our facebook pages and share our Daisy Logo to help spread awareness of their plight and together we can create a 'Daisy Chain of Compassion' (Facebook pages: 7th Heaven Animal Rescue Trust and Seventh Heaven)

For Pets’ Sake, Quit Smoking: No Smoking Campaign (incorporating No Smoking Day - 11 March 2020

Everyone is aware that smoking is hazardous to one’s health and that passive smoking is hazardous to the health of one’s family members. It would appear, however, that, not everyone uses this knowledge to pursue it to its logical conclusion – smoking is also detrimental to your pet’s health. Passive smoking can cause respiratory problems and lung, nasal, skin and mouth cancer in animals. A study carried out by Tuft’s University School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts found that continuous exposure to cigarette smoke doubles the chances of cats getting lymphoma and living in a household for more than five years where there is a smoker increased the risk by 400%. Cats are particularly susceptible to illness because when they groom themselves they ingest particles containing nicotine and other dangerous chemicals such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, arsenic, benzene from the cigarettes. Research into the effects of passive smoking on dogs carried out by Colorado State University showed higher incidence of nasal cancer, particularly in long-nose breeds of dogs. It also showed an increased risk of lung cancer. Numerous other studies have shown that inhalation of cigarette smoke causes bronchoconstriction and inflammation of the lungs in guinea pigs, laryngeal carcinomas in hamsters, skin tumours on rabbits and mice and pneumonia and lung cancer in birds. So if you don’t want to give up smoking for your sake, give it up for the sake of your pet. Make your home, a smoke-free zone.
