We are an organisation that rescues cats and kittens that are unwanted,abandoned, or abused.
The animals are cared for in Mangere East, Auckland, where we bring them back to good health to go on to being adopted. All cats that leave the trust are spayed or neutered, wormed, vaccinated and microchipped.

In the past few months we have had some well meaning people approach the SPCA with concerns regarding the facilities, we would like to point out that as there are 100 cats on the premises at any one time, things can become quite messy (as anyone with a litter tray will know.)
Cleaning the grounds and cages is a daily task. We endeavour to get the cleaning done in the morning before we have people in for viewing. Depending on Volunteers on the day this is not always possible.
We had a visit recently by Chief Inspector Mr. Nick Thomason of the SPCA and we were delighted that he found there were no major issues. This has been a great relief to us. If you would like to help us out and donate some free time to assist us in the day to day running of the Trust - Click here to read about the ways you can help!

The Trust is full to capacity and unfortunately this means we are not able to take in any more cats or kittens until we rehome some of our existing residents. Having a no-kill means we have only one way to make more room and that is adoption, adoption, adoption.
If you're thinking about getting a new family member, why not have a look at our gorgeous cats! You will be helping two cats - both the one you adopt and the cat in need which is able to take it's space!
Full to capacity / reposted: September 10th 2013


We want to give a HUGE thank you shout out for the BNZ volunteers who came in as part of the BNZ Closed For Good initiative. We completely appreicate it!
We also had in some university students and want to thank them for their help as well. We love to get as many hands on deck as possible as we really need the volunteer manpower. If anyone is interested in helping out with cleaning duties or even with our BBQ fundraisers contact us via phone 09 276 9960 or 027 426 4374 or email: catsnjammas@maxnet.co.nz
Every bit counts :)

Operation Lucky: JOEL update / New recipient Bluebell

Bluebell - Operation Lucky
Thanks to all of you who donated to our last Operation Lucky case which was for Joel, who needed surgery to remove his badly damaged left eye. Joel is now a much happier cat and will soon be up for adoption - click here to view Joel's profile.
Our NEW recipient is Bluebell, who came to us after being hit by a car. Both Bluebell's back legs were fractured and one is a compound fracture which looks likely to need amputation. Bluebell's surgery and related costs are looking to be around $750 and so we have made her our new Operation Lucky case. Click here to get the bank details if you would like to donate to her cause. Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
Bluebell is also looking for a sponsor parent during her time with us - click here to see her profile.

If you can't donate, PLEASE share this post to other animal lovers who may want to help out, so we can do our best to raise the money to help Bluebell. Thanks so much.
