Mr Elsip, who co-ordinates the appeal with his wife Mary, said environmental protection regulations introduced in 1991 mean most city strays were taken to Birmingham, Meriden and Honiley.
Tony Elsip, organiser of the appeal, praised her for her efforts and said he hoped more people would support the appeal.
