Can you help with centre’s cat crisis?
Chesterfield RSPCA is facing a cat crisis after being inundated with abandoned and unwanted moggies. The charity, on Spital Lane, is appealing for pet lovers to come forward as the centre is full to capacity and unable to take any more cats.
Animal care manager Gary Taylor said: " We currently have over 50 cats and kittens looking for homes. We are full to capacity and we are unable to take in any more cats until some have been adopted – we already have some cats waiting to come in. We would urge anyone who is considering adding a cat or kitten to their family to come visit our Chesterfield Animal Centre to view the cats we have available."
The towns RSPCA is entirely self funded and is currently fundraising for a major project to refurbish the centre.
Meanwhile, demand for the charity's service is rising and more animals are coming in to the centre for care than ever before.
