Ty Nant Cat Sanctuary

£20,000 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 1,426 people in 34 months
UPDATE - On behalf of myself, Teresa Ahmad, and all the volunteers at Ty-Nant Cat Sanctuary, we take this opportunity to wish a collective Thank You for all of your donations.
We are truly astounded at the amount that has been raised so far and so quickly. We take this as a testament to the amount of animal lovers around the world who have been as outraged and appalled as we are at the needless deaths and abuse of our beloved cats.
The donations will ensure that we can improve our sanctuary with a security system as well as restore the damaged caused to the building. We will also be able to provide greater facilities and higher standard of living for the cats that are with us now and our future residents. Your continued donations will ensure that we can provide our cats with the sanctuary they deserve.
In due course we will be arranging an Open Day and extend a warm invitation to all of you to attend so you can meet the team and the cats as well as be able to see the fruits of your kind donations. For those of you further afield we will be providing a full breakdown of all costs where the donations have been implemented.
We are still utterly shocked at the incident. We will, however, continue to grow stronger and continue to provide a haven for cats and kittens in need. We now have a way forwards that has been lit up by your collective response and support. We leave you with this touching and fitting quote for now:
"Friends are like stars; You don't always see them, but you know that they are there".
Thank You to you all, sincerely from Ty-Nant Cat Sanctuary and an extra special "meow" from the cats!

We are deeply saddened to inform you all that last night the sanctuary has been the victim of a terrible attack. A 18 and 15 year old has been caught unclear if more involved. Our room that we have our older cats reside in has been broken into and most of the cats that we had there are now missing/stolen. One cat was found killed in the lane, and only one other has been found and returned.

All our hard work and love that we have shown these cats has been devasted by this malicious attack. Teresa, Nicky and the rest of the team are heart broken by this.

We would ask for any information from the public and our friends who follow and support us, to contact us or the police. Please share this post with friends and family. We hope all our fellow cat lovers with help us with this.



About us - 

Established in June 1990, Ty Nant Cat Sanctuary is a small, independent, not-for-profit organisation based in Cymmer, Port Talbot. We were established in response to the problem of unwanted, stray and abandoned cats within the area. Since then hundreds of cats & kittens have passed through our care. Most have been successfully re-homed but others due to their temperament or illness have stayed at Ty-Nant.

Our main aim is to rescue unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens, domestic and feral, and where possible find them suitable forever homes

Sadly placing these young scum bags in prison will not help them. They need the hard truth knocked into them...they cut the cats legs off so they could not run...well then so we do that to them, what will they do then? what happens when the fact dawns on them that this is the pain they have inflicted? that they can't run away either? just oxygen wasters and want putting down.

How DARE people question why no one was at the sanctuary or that this may be a hoax... Do you have ANY understanding how hard people work to look after these unfortunate animals? Do you have ANY idea how this will effect those same people for the rest of their lives? Let alone how it has effected the cats that survived. SHAME on ANYONE criticising these people who give up their time to help these lovely animals ... Do YOU stay at home 24/7 incase someone takes advantage that you are not there protecting it? GET A GRIP and APOLOGISE.

Dee Henry Kessing it is you who should be ashamed of yourself, I can assure you that this is in no way a hoax. My sister owns Ty Nant Cat Sanctuary and we have spoken with her and know the full details, some of which are to upsetting to post here. There were more than one cat tortured and killed and the ' bizarre' ones as you say left in the cage are the lucky ones because they would have had the same fate as the other poor ones or would have had dogs set on them! Please find out the full facts before you post hurtful comments. I also know that my sister and her friends that help her have been overwhelmed and amazed at all the help and support that they have received and especially grateful for the donations received from the lovely people here and I know that the money will go towards helping rescue and re -home more cats in the future, so thank you everyone.

The laws in this country surrounding animals need changing. Anyone can hurt your animal and it is seen as merely theft now or destroying property! It is not seen as murder or GBH. That's what we all need to work on and lobby to get tougher sentences for animal abusers.

I am so sorry that this has happened, I cannot understand why people should want to harm defenceless animals. I hope they are caught and taught a lesson, but it will probably only be a fine, which their parents will pay. I hope that you get as many of the cats back as possible. xxx

You deserve every last penny. Prison is too good for these evil scum. There is something seriously wrong in their heads and prison won't sort it. They are twisted psychopaths and will be freed back into society to hurt again..
