About Cat Welfare Sussex

Cat Welfare Sussex and Southern Region is a local registered charity run entirely by volunteers dedicated to the welfare of stray and unwanted cats both domestic and feral, within the Southern area.

In working closely with vets, local councils, social services, police and environmental agencies we seek to prevent cruelty at source.

Cats in Our Catteries

Every year Cat Welfare Sussex is inundated with calls from members of the public, social services, local police, environment agencies and animal organisations all asking for our help and advice concerning unwanted or stray cats.

These are just a few of the very many fortunate felines that have been rescued by our Charity during the year.

Fulling Mill Cottage

Cat Welfare Sussex has been bequeathed Fulling Mill Cottage in Fittleworth.  Our benefactor has requested that the charity takes care of his cats, and prevent his old family home and grounds from being demolished and re-developed.

After careful thought, the trustees have decided to restore Fulling Mill Cottage to its former Glory. As a small local charity with limited funds we are aware of the challenges that lie ahead. However we cannot stand by and watch this unique corner of Rural Sussex disappear forever.
