our ongoing fundraiser for medical costs and food

We have a constant challenge to face with medical bills for sick and injured animals as well as for the provision of healthy food for these starving strays. To help us, please click here and go to our main fundraiser page


Help US neuter the cats!


Please send what you can via Paypal to tnravsallar@gmail.com

Sterilising cats is very important as it is the only way to keep the cat population from growing exponentially, causing many miserable deaths among mothers, mating toms, kittens and the general population due to the extra pressure on their territory when too many cats have to compete to survive. To find out more, you can visit our page on this website that explains all about our TNR mission. Please chip in to our ongoing trap-neuter-release efforts by donating to tnravsallar@gmail.com.


Thunderball - raise funds to help us TNR in a fun way!

Yvonne Sinclair has offered to help us by setting up our very own WEDNESDAY THUNDERBALL DRAW specifically to help fund our TNR (trap-neuter-release) programme.

This is a weekly draw of only 14 numbers costing £2 each weekly, with an ongoing commitment required.

If all numbers are raised there will be £28 in the pot.

This will then be split 50/50 weekly shared as £14 for the winning number and £14 for the TNR of Avsallar strays.

£2 per number (weekly commitment is required)
PayPal: mtoorkey@gmail.com

The chances of winning £14 are 14:1. This makes it an easy way to make a few pounds and covering some of the costs of TNR with a guaranteed £14 each week (if all numbers are allocated) to put towards much needed ongoing TNR efforts!

In the event not all numbers are allocated, the amount raised will be split 50/50 with the winning number and the TNR fund.

If any unsold number wins, the TNR fund will be given the winnings for that week as if it had been re-donated by the week's winner.

£14 each week raised = £56 each month raised = £728 each year raised!

This weekly £14 may not seem like a lot to me and you but to the hundreds of strays it is £14 each week more than they had. It will go a long way to fund neuter/spay the kitties, helping to promote a reduction of unwanted and defenseless fur babies joining this cycle!
