Sponsor A Special Cat

Why Cats Need Sponsorship

Dog Rescue Newcastle cares for kittens and cats, as well as dogs and puppies, because of the severe problem of over population, abuse, and abandonment cats. Senior cats and special needs cats need extra help; due to their lower chance of adoption they live out their lives in foster care.

Cats Available for Sponsorship

Please note that cats can have more than one sponsor. We’d love to have one sponsor at each sponsorship level for each cat. Thank you.

Cat Description Sponsor
Brin is a 10-year old cat who was abandoned by his owner in a quiet street and was found by an elderly lady who lived nearby.  Poor Brin was in shocking condition, skin and bone and riddled with fleas.  When he came into care, it was evident something had happened to his eye.  Brin’s eye could not be saved and he lost his eye.  Unfortunately, due to a disease, it looks like Brin will shortly loose his other eye and be completely blind.

We are seeking sponsors to help pay for Brin’s ongoing medical care including the removal of his eye.  He will remain in permanent foster care with us so he is safe and well cared for.

Nikita 9-year-old Dr Jekyll was dumped on a farm by his owners that no longer wanted him.  The farmer found him and was going to shoot him but thankfully, he was saved in the nick of time.  Dr Jekyll was so traumatised by what happened to him that he is now permanently affected and may turn if he is scared. Therefore, he will need to be in permanent foster care and cannot be re-homed. Platinum: vacant.

Jacquelini Jacquelini and her best friend Cheeky were left behind by her owners who moved to a new house. She is an affectionate cat to her foster carer but can become worried of strangers. She is about 12 years of age and a wee bit “round”. Cheeky and Jacquelini cannot be re-homed due to some behavioural issues and so we would like to keep them in permanent foster carer.

Patches Patches is a 2yo cat who has been re-homed 8 times. YES, 8 TIMES in only 2 years! Poor Patches is tired of going from home to home. He thinks no-one loves him and he just wants to settle down and feel safe. He loves to socialise with other cats and is often found smooching with his carer or sunning himself in a nice spot. Due to various issues from being re-homed so many times he will need to be in foster care for the rest of his life. Platinum: vacant.

Pepper Pepper is a 5 yo male cat who was surrendered with his friend Salt. He is obsessed with climbing trees. He likes to mingle with some of the other cats but really loves his brother Salt. They can be seen walking around the property, talking about birds, trees and politics. Pepper has not been able to be re-homed due to some behavioural issues so will need to stay as a foster cat for his life. Platinum: vacant.

Puddy Puddy is 19 YEARS OLD! Can you believe it? His story is very sad. His elderly owner absolutely adored Puddy and was the love of his life, but unfortunately his elderly owner became blind and had to move to a nursing home where he couldn’t take Puddy.

So, let’s help Puddy. We would like to keep Puddy in permanent care as he has some medical issues. His owner will be forever grateful.

Saffy Saffy’s female owner, who absolutely adored her, unfortunately got sick and was no longer able to care for her. Her husband refused to look after poor Saffy, so he surrendered her. Saffy misses her female owner so much.

Unfortunately, at 16 years of age, Saffy has some serious medical issues and cannot be re-homed. She is a loving, quiet girl and is no trouble for her foster carer.

Sarah This gorgeous cat was previously abused by her owner. She became so untrusting of humans that she wouldn’t let anyone go near her. She has been re-homed several times but always returned. Poor Sarah just wanted to be loved. She trusts no-one, except her wonderful foster carer who she absolutely loves.

Because of Sarah’s behavioural issues, she cannot be rehomed, and we are looking for a kind soul to sponsor her, so she can remain permanently in care.

He has been rehomed several times but it never worked out. Simon was too scared, so he will remain in permanent foster care. He is a sweet boy who just wants a quiet life and will snuggle up to his carer often. Platinum: vacant.
