Business overview

Caring for Cats is a small non-profit cat rescue centre working in the Hull, Beverley, York, Driffield and wider Yorkshire and Humber region.

“As Caring for Cats is not run on a business model, like some national charities with paid staff, our focus remains fully on the animals and their welfare.” Rose Atkin, charity coordinator.

Feral beginnings

The charity was officially set up in 2000 by Steve Marshall and the coordinator, Rose Atkin. Rose had already been working on her own for over 15 years to relieve the plight and suffering of neglected feral cat colonies. Combating both public and other charities’ misconceptions about the nature of feral cats, Rose was driven by a passionate belief that many of these animals could be re-habilitated and re-homed happily to domestic life. Any cat 'living on the street', whether born there or strayed from a home, deserves a second chance and these are the ones the charity still gives priority to.
