Cats Protection has new co-ordinator

The Fraserburgh branch of Cats Protection has a new branch co-ordinator.

After 23 years at the helm of the Broch branch, Margaret Strachan, stepped down in 2010 and Lorriane Leith took over as co-ordinator, responsible for admissions of abandoned cats and kittens.

Margaret has however, remained active within the Fraserburgh branch and is still a committee member, continuing with fundraising, home checks, and organising the annual pet show which will be held on Sunday, August 21, at Fraserburgh leisure Centre.

The Fraserburgh branch of Cats Protection was started more than 23 years ago.

From then till now the branch has continued to rescue; rehabilitate and re-home needy, sometimes neglected and unwanted cats and kittens.

Over the past year, Fraserburgh Cats Protection has re-homed more than 100 cats and kittens and several feral colonies have been trapped, neutered and returned.

However, there are many mature cats looking for homes and the Broch branch are asking people to consider offering these cats, aged 12 plus a loving home.

Speaking to the Herald, Margaret said: “We are always looking for volunteers, whether it be providing transport to take cats/kittens to the vets, picking up abandoned animals, possibly giving up a spare room to become a fosterer please get on touch. Any help no matter how small is greatly appreciated.”
