Who we are...

Western Isles Support for Cats and Kittens was established early in 2020 in response to the growing need for control of the feral cat population, especially in Lewis and Harris – and after the national cat rescue charity pulled their support out of the Western Isles.

Our committee consists of eight Lewis residents who have over 30 years of cat/animal rescue experience between them.

 

As well as being hands on in all aspects of the organisation, the committee members co-ordinate the numerous volunteer fundraisers, pen-cleaners, trapping assistants, our volunteer fosters and of course they oversee all adoptions.

What we do...

WISCK exists to help improve the quality of life of cats, while reducing the population of feral cats in the islands by trapping, neutering and returning adult ferals to their colonies. Kittens are kept in foster care until they are social and then matched with new owners through social media. The group also shares information on missing cats to help reunite loved pets with their owners.
