Kitty Stowaways Appeal

Why we need your help

Here's a first for DBARC (and not one we want to repeat!) but we're life savers for 3 illegally imported 6 week old kittens. We've named them Edam, Gouda and Tulip as they made their way over from Holland, caught in a vehicle engine! The family driving had no idea these 3 had stowed away until they heard them when they parked up in Bracknell.

When they brought them to us, we had to inform the authorities, who promptly told us that unless either we, or the 'importers' agreed to cover the quarantine costs, these sweet kitty babies would have to be put to sleep. As we couldn't allow that to happen, we've worked with the authorities and the kittens are now in quarantine for the next few weeks.

This does however mean that DBARC faces a very large quarantine bill before the kittens will be ready for rehoming. It will be in the region of £3000 (and that's with the excellent kennels doing everything they can to keep costs to us down). Clearly this is frightening for us, but it is the only acceptable thing we can do: pay the bill to save the lives of these innocents.

So, we are opening a special appeal today and we're hoping against hope that many of you will drop a few pounds into the pot for these Dutch cuties.

We quarantined two rescued feral cats from the Middle East and Africa.This was the best thing we ever did - they became the heart of our family. One lived to age 21, the other to age 18. Here's hoping for such long and happy lives for these three.

I am from the Netherlands and I do hope that these sweet kittens will have a warm and lovely home. Please do not take away the chance of a wonderful, meaningful life. It wasn't their fault. Otherwise, I will buy them and bring them back to Holland. D
