You can make a lot of stray cats and kittens very happy.

Phibsboro Cat Rescue has helped over 700 cats since the group was founded in 2014 – and they’re about to help a whole lot more.

But they need your help.

The voluntary group works to help homeless and stray cats in the Phibsboro area, and they have recently secured a new permanent home that will allow them to help more feline friends and become more involved in the community.

The derelict premises, located on the Royal Canal Bank on the North Circular Road, will become the newly named Hidden Haven urban garden, while the two derelict buildings will be refurbished into The Cassie and Glitter Centre.

The centre will become the headquarters for the non-profit group, where they hope to create a small office area, install facilities for the cats they rescue and hold information days and charity events.

PCR have set up a crowd-funding page in order to raise the money to refurbish the premises and get the centre up and running.

Here’s how the group says the money can help:

“At the moment all of our available money, which comes solely from donations from our kind-hearted supporters, goes towards neutering/spaying costs and medical care of our cats and kittens. By supporting this campaign, we will have that rent secure for an entire year and continue to use all the other donations we receive from the public to care for the cats and kittens of north and central Dublin.”

“The work will include refurbishing the existing two buildings and a shed to make them secure and watertight. We can then install a lavatory and wash room for our traps, which we use on a daily basis. It will also allow us to begin the urban garden with infrastructure such as a water butt to gather rain water, planters, develop a native Irish garden, and build the memorial rockery.”

To help Phibsboro Cat Rescue reach their goal of €10,000, you can donate here.
