The Benevolent Fund

The Benevolent Fund exist to safeguard and protect the Burmese breed.

The Benevolent fund

Welfare of the Burmese cat is the Club’s prime concern. We have a UK wide rehoming service which helps around 400 needy cats each year. The Burmese Cat Club Benevolent Fund, which depends entirely upon private donations, provides the financial support to care for distressed cats in emergency situations, and to pay for boarding and veterinary costs for cats awaiting new homes. Suitable accommodation is available by means of a series of “safe houses” established across the country. This accomodation is often made available by Burmese Breeders. The accommodation may also be in provate homes where suitable facilities exist. At certain times we also have foster care available.

Make a donation

Needless to say, the costs of caring for cats in need of rescue or re-homing can soon mount up, so any donation you can make to help support a distressed or homeless Burmese cat will be greatly appreciated. Cheques, made payable to “The Burmese Cat Club Benevolent Fund”, should be sent to the Honorary Treasurer details of which can be found on the committee page.

Rehome a cat in need

Cats which are not claimed, or which are released into the Club’s care by their former owners, are rehomed (with their non-Burmese companions where applicable!) by means of the waiting lists of people wishing to give a home to a Burmese. These lists are compiled by the Welfare & Rehoming Co-ordinator. Great care is taken to match cats and homes as closely as possible.

If you think you can give a cat a loving home please visit our rescue and rehome page for an up to date list.

Read some rehoming stories on the Burmese Cat Club blog.
