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.
We welcome visitors to come and meet our beautiful rescue cats so we may find a perfect match and forever home for them.
Noon to 2pm every day except Fridays by appointment.
If you would like to view a cat, please phone beforehand on
09 276 9960 or 027 426 4374 to arrange the appointment. Our email contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note there is a stand-down period of at least 48 hours on all cats before they are released to their new homes as we process the paperwork and take the cat for their final vet check.
Cats In Need Trust uses the facilitates of Cats 'n Jammas Boarding Cattery, so we ask that you respect the times for viewing. Click for more information.

Our volunteer graphic designers have spent the past few months designing, editing and taking photos for our 2014 calendar. We have just received the first batch and we think it looks great! This year we decided to feature Zane as our cover-cat - isn't he gorgeous!
The calendar is packed full of information about Cats In Need Trust, fun facts, photos of cats looking for sponsorship and some of our happy ending stories (which you sent in) and of course it showcases cats which are up for adoption! It's a great way for you to help keep track of all the hundreds of things you need to do next year, while helping our cats out at the same time!!
It's just $15 + p&p. Click here for more information or email shopCINT@gmail.com to order your copy today!

NO MORE ROOM AT THE INN - WE ARE CURRENTLY UNABLE TO TAKE IN ANY MORE CATS.
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: email@example.com
Every bit counts :)

Operation Lucky: JOEL update / New recipient Bluebell
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.

HELP NEEDED FOR BBQ FUNDRAISERS
Every month we try to hold several BBQ's to raise money to help pay for the food and vet costs for all our cats in need.
However we are desperately short of volunteers to man these BBQ's and are looking for anybody willing to make a difference and help us help the cats.
Whether you can only do a few hours / half a day / once a month - everything helps!
To help email our BBQ co-ordinator for more information or call the Trust on

WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 2013?
EVER CONSIDERED VOLUNTEERING?
Caring for cats is a lot of work and we can always do with an extra pair of hands for a variety of jobs. Every day we are cleaning cages, grooming cats, washing cat bowls, preparing cat dinners, putting the cats to bed, feeding the cats dinner.... and then we do all over again the next day.
Whatever help you can give is greatly appreciated, even if you can only come out once or twice a month for a few hours each time, it means the world to us to know we can rely on that help.
If you are interested in volunteering you can contact us - on 09 276 9960 or 027 426 4374 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
