Free cat microchip check to unite cats

Cat Finders is a new charity based in Burnley U.K.
We offer a cat warden service providing a free call out service to check for a cats microchip and contact the registered owner if possible to unite the cat with its owner if lost.
(We don’t take the cat anywhere)

Many people can’t be bothered taking a cat to the local vets or cat rescue centre to have it checked for a microchip even though they know the cat is not owned by anyone nearby.

Some people are happy to feed a cat they think is simply a neighbours but don’t think it could be lost.

Some people may take months before they take the cat to the vets to check for a microchip, this would put the owner through much unnecessary stress (and the cat)

We have a long range thermal imaging camera to aid in looking for a lost cat.
Although objects can not be seen through the screen shows if heat is coming from an object, e.g. shed or some decking, so if a cat is weak and unable to meow, this could save the cats life.


We need money to start up the website, we wish to have a video sharing website for cats only, there’s lots of missing websites with photos on but if people can post videos of found cats there’s more chance of them being recognised by their owner, none are known of as writing this.

We also want to have a automatic recognition software for cat photos, this would work the same way as Google lens does, but the lost cat owner would load up some photos of the missing cat and the search facility would attempt to find a match on the internet and on our own website.

If a reward was given to us for finding a lost cat, the money would go straight back into the charity to expand, the cat owner would say how the donation should be received wether to the finder (a volunteer) or a split amount.

Our aim would be to have Cat Finders national within 5 years, which would cover the whole of the U.K.
We would try our best to make the government bring in a law to get all cats microchipped at 8 weeks of age (the same as dogs)

Please donate as much as you can afford, let’s stop people going through heartache and get their lost cat found.
