3 ways to help cats in need

If you're looking for new ways to make a difference during this difficult time, read  our top tips for helping cats in need. Rescue cats need our help now more than ever. 

Sharing is caring!

Social media is an incredibly powerful tool, and cat charities often publish pleas for new cat fosterers, new homes or for other types of help like cat food and kitty litter. They use social media channels in the hope of reaching out to as many cat lovers as possible! Even if you’re not looking to take on a new addition, or can't help during the COVID-19 lockdown, following our local cat rescue organisations on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – and sharing their campaigns with your own followers – will help cats in need to find their future furrever homes!

At HiLife, we’re proud to support national online cat charity Cat Chat. It has recently launched its ‘Twenty for 2020’ campaign, helping to find homes for the 20 most overlooked cats in UK rescue centres this year. Look out for us sharing these cats’ stories across our own channels – and we’d love you to share their pleas too, especially if they currently reside in your local area. The campaign has also received some brilliant support from celebrities like David Jason, Angela Rippon and Suzy Perry.

Buy one, donate one

Every time you pick up a pouch of HiLife cat food or a bag of HiLife cat treats, why not grab a little bit extra to donate to local rescue cats in need? Many charities are grateful for any support!

Some supermarkets have special collection bins in store for charities such as Cats Protection, while other smaller charities could benefit from having some food or treats dropped off at their door! Why not share the idea with friends and make one large donation? The feel-good factor will be amazing knowing that you’re helping kitties in need! 

Give as you live

One of the simplest ways of helping cat organisations raise money is to install the ‘Give as you Live’ plug-in on your browser. Now, every time you make a purchase through Amazon, John Lewis – and many other online stores – your chosen charity will receive a small percentage at no extra cost to you! It’s really simple but goes a long way to help rescue cats in need.

Amazon also operates a scheme for charities called Amazon Smile. They donate a small percentage of eligible purchases to your chosen charity. It's worth checking out the scheme if you're planning to make a purchase with them anyway. It costs nothing extra, just a little bit of time and so many kitties can benefit. smiley
