Linda Wilkinson of PARRT
, which is contributing pounds 100 towards the surgery costs, said: "Muffin now has a bright future in a happy home, thanks to a real collective effort by voluntary organisations."
It's cats like these that PARRT
are hoping to find new homes for this summer, by holding special events including a sponsored dog walk.
Earlier this month, we reported how the People's Animal Rescue and Rehoming Team (PARRT), of High Hauxley in Northumberland, had been inundated with pets needing new homes.
In addition, PARRT has been sent cat food and goods to sell in its charity shop, and had two other charities offer it cat pens.
As we reported yesterday, the People's Animal Rescue and Rehoming Team (PARRT) is on the verge of having to turn away cats after being overwhelmed with animals needing new homes.
Mrs Wilkinson, 60, of High Hauxley, near Amble, Northumberland, says 2010 has been the worst year for people giving up animals in her three decades in the business, having been a volunteer with the RSPCA before setting up PARRT.
PARRT believes the summer is just as bad as the period after Christmas for people giving up animals as many cannot be bothered arranging care when preparing for their holidays.
She was found in a garden with her sister Sophie and is now being looked after by one of PARRT's foster carers.
More than 100 cats have already been given to the People's Animal Rescue and Rehoming Team (PARRT) and because of the costs there is a chance it will have to close its doors.
SHOW DATE PARRT will be at Warkworth Show on Saturday, August 21.
