Give a Pet a Home!"He who harms animals has not understood or renounced deeds of sin.
Those whose minds are at peace and who are free from passions do not
desire to live at the expense of others."
From Acharanga Sutra - Jainism - non-vedic religion of Old India

Cat Action Trust 1977 (Leeds Branch) CAT 1977's policy is to help feral cats by limiting their numbers through neutering and returning to site, and by finding homes for kittens and tame stray cats. The charity is totally against killing for expediency. The charity's motto is "A lifeline for feral cats." Cat Action Trust 1977 is a small national charity dedicated to the welfare of feral cats. We have an Executive Committee and 11 branches in Aberdeen, Ayrshire, Bewdley, Central London, East Kilbride (Lanarkshire), Jersey , Leeds, Nuneaton And Hinckley, Shaw , Ullapool. The charity is run entirely by volunteers, which means that the bare minimum is spent on administrative costs and almost all money donated is spent directly on the cats and their welfare.
