How you can help
We have set up this appeal to raise extra funds for us to provide pet food to pet owners and people caring for feral / community cats affected during this Covid-19 crisis as some people have contacted us to ask how they can help. Please donate if you can help.
Support for the Pet Food Bank is gradually coming through, however very few are interested in helping people who feed the feral or community cats. They deserve help too and have been used to being feed over the years, so to stop now would be dangerous for them and distressing for their 'guardians'.
We know that there are lot of people out there struggling to feed themselves, let alone donate necessary funds to help animals. We don't want you to donate if you are, but we do want you to contact us to see if we can support you.
Thank you for all your support, keep safe and care for all your furry loved ones during this time
Would you like to help us?
All details of our events are on our events page if you would like to help out at these.
We also raise awareness of animals through World Animal Day on 4 October each year and especially close to our heart, to promote the poor feral cats in the run up to National Feral Day on 16 October. We introduced Feral Cat Month in 2014 and during this time we donated most of the cat food given to us to helping feed Feral / Community Cats. We are looking for help to promote this event every year, perhaps you could even organise an event to help raise awareness, collect food or let us know of cats that could benefit from this.
So if you can spare a few hours to help us, we would be grateful - please e-mail us to Thank you from all the furries!
Daisy Day- 24 December - we are asking everyone to spare a few moments on this day each year to remember all the innocent animals killed in war.
You can help animals by:
Taking responsibility for your own animal. If you are thinking of putting your animal up for rehoming - please think again. Animals will nearly always be better off in the home enviroment they are used to, rather in a Pound or Sanctuary.
Keeping your pet in, keep it safe, as many animals go missing or get killed on the roads.
Not ignoring a stray animal if it turns up on your door - it's probably starving and in need of help. It's picked you for a reason - will you help it? Will you give it food? Can you give it shelter? And will you contact anyone to see if it is lost (eg council, vets, charities)?
Offering an animal a loving home.
Caring and treating your own pet, or indeed any animal, with love and respect. And please encourage others to do so too.
For us, these suggestions are the most important things you can do to help animals!
There are various ways to help 7th Heaven:
We are currently looking for the following help:
- October is a very special month for 7th Heaven. This is the month that we raise awareness of animals. 4 October is World Animal Day. This global event is dedicated to raising awareness about the plight of animals throughout the world. 16 October is National Feral Cat Day. This international event highlights the plight of these poor, unfortunate, unwanted, and for many, unloved animals. 7th Heaven last year introduced 'Feral Cat Month' for the whole of October. We collect and donate a lot of pet food and provide shelters to feral or community cats during this period. We try to raise awareness through various events during this time too. Would you like to be part of this? Would you like to organise an event yourself to help us promote any of these? This is not about raising funds, but helping raise awareness of all the animals out there who need our help & support.

My name is Poppy. I was pregnant & paralysed from being shot. 7th Heaven took me in, paid for the operation to remove the bullet and provide a nice, warm, safe enclosure where I could rear my beautiful babies, Peanut & Truffles. I have since successfully been rehomed. Now other animals with similarly sad stories will be staying in this enclosure. By being a sponsor, you will be helping them, until they too find a loving home
Sponsor a Long Term Resident
Whilst we would love to be able to rehome all the animals we rescue, realistically there may be some that may need to remain with us, for whatever reason, long term or for the rest of their days. We will provide them with all their home comforts, lots of love and any treatments they may require throughout.
If you are interested in sponsoring an enclosure or Long Term Resident, it costs £50 a year. Please e-mail us to: or complete the Become a Friend below and send it to us
Lucky is a beautiful older female cat. Her owner passed away and she was left with her friend. However she lived in a fold and they did not allow pets. She has been here long term and made friends in with the oldies. When we did find a home for her, she became very stressed and ill at being removed from her friends and so is likely to remain with them
Angel is older cat who is very afraid around people. She prefers the company of Astra and Smokey. As she is so timid no one wanted her. So she is now settled in our long term 'oldie' home and is happy to be herself
