We also have a Friends of Axhayes Group:

Our Friends of Axhayes Adoption Centre is a group of volunteers who organise fundraising events and activities to raise money for the Centre.

We cannot carry out our vital work of rehoming and helping  hundreds of cats every year, without funds, so by becoming a fundraising volunteer you could really be at the forefront of helping cats in your area.

If you have a passion for cats and can spend some time to fundraise or be an advocate of the charity's work, then we would love to hear from you!

Thanks to our Friends Of group, we have held coffee mornings at the Centre and done street collections as well as other events.
Please call us on 01395 232377 if you are interested in joining.
