10000 Cats Rehomed Through Innovative Video Matching Scheme
No one can stop you if you have the will power inside you that you have to achieve this even this coronavirus pandemic also cannot. Here’s a great news coming in and you will be glad to know that more than10,000 cats have found their forever home since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and all credit goes to the pioneering new scheme developed by a leading animal charity.
A new doorstep delivery scheme called Hands-Free Homing was launched by the Cats Protection in late March just to ensure that no cats are left behind and they are homed despite forthcoming lockdown restrictions.
We truly appreciate the efforts and the innovative approach made by the charity to save the cats and give them new home’s. The animal charity used interactive video to match prospective owners with potential pets, before transporting the animals to the new owner’s doorstep if a match was found.
Without breaking the rule of lockdown, Covid-safe collection was also introduced at their centres using the same online matching process.
Among 10,000 cats the first cat who found a new home and parents was ‘Jess’. He found a new home with a wonderful parents North Yorkshire couple Claire and Paul McGinley.
Mrs McGinley stated that they wanted a adopt an older cat and It was hard choosing from the worthy cases on the website.
“There were a few tears shed by me when we had to choose one because I am so soft and felt sorry for the others we couldn’t have she stated further.
The pair decided on a 12-year-old black and white cat whose owner had recently died. This cat has brought joy and laughter their lives and once again their house is a home sweet home.
‘Jess’ was renamed as Shane by his new parents he has lost quite a few teeth and Mrs McGinley husband’s favourite singer is Shane MacGowan from The Pogues.
Sandra and Anthony Fludgate, from Datchet in Berkshire, also used Hands-Free Homing to adopt a six-week-old kitten called Hans from Harrow Homing Centre.
Mrs Fludgate said: “We felt totally safe in their care, which was important to us as my husband is disabled and vulnerable and was shielding. “He loves cats and, as we’ve discovered, kittens definitely keep you young.” By November, the innovative new scheme had helped the charity home 10,859 cats since the start of lockdown.
Mike Elliott, Cats Protection’s director of field operations, said the 10,000-cat landmark was “an achievement worth celebrating”. “Lockdown forced us to rethink how best to support the welfare of cats in need,” he said. “We had to find new ways of working and fast.
“This milestone is testament to the teamwork, commitment and dedication of our volunteers, staff and fundraisers who pulled together for the sake of the cats,” he said.
