The Ragdoll in the photo above is Amy. Amy was rescued, fostered
and rehomed by the UKRCC. Throughout her short life, Amy had been
in four homes and had suffered cruelty and neglect. She came to
us needing major surgery to remove an ovary left behind when she
was neutered and to repair her bowel, damaged by a huge force,
either from a car or from someone kicking her. It was also found
that one of Amy's kidney was permanently damaged. These injuries
had not been treated by a vet at the time they occurred. Amy was
a very frightened, unwell cat when she came to us. It took five
months of love and care and over £700 in vet and fostering
bills to rehabilitate Amy, so she was ready to join her new family.

The UKRCC only survives to help Ragdolls like Amy because of
people's generosity, both with their time, commitment and of course
their financial support. We are a small charity, doing a hugely
important job. The more support we receive, the more secure as
a charity we shall become and the more Ragdolls we shall be able
to help in the future. Please help us, if you can.
Adopt a Ragdoll:
We are always seeking loving homes for needy Ragdolls. If you
have the time and commitment to give an older Ragdoll then please
visit our Ragdoll cat rehoming page
for more details.
Join our team of volunteers:
We are a UK wide charity and so we can never have enough volunteers.
Do you have a few hours you can spare to carry out home assessments
in your local area? Do you drive? Would you be willing to help
transport Ragdoll cats to their new home? Can you help us raise
awareness of our charity by circulating our posters to vets and
boarding catteries in your local area? If you are interested in
helping in any of these ways, please email
Become a Ragdoll Cat foster carer:
We have an increasing number of Ragdolls who need to be removed
from their home very quickly and in such cases we provide foster
homes. In 2007 we provided foster care for 19 Ragdoll cats. We
are currently seeking very special people, to join our fostering
team, who have the time, love and commitment to give to needy
Ragdolls. For more details please read our Foster
Care Guide and then, if you wish to register your
interest, please print and complete our
Foster Carer Application Form. Please send
your completed form to the registered addresss detailed at the
bottom of the paperwork.
Are you good at arts and crafts?
If you enjoy making greetings cards, jewellery, cat blankets
and beds, cat toys etc. and would be willing to donate some items
to us to help us raise funds via our shop, or online auction on
our forum, please email us.
Make a donation:
If you are not able to become involved as a volunteer, then you
can still help us by making a donation. In July 2007 we spent
over £1000 in veterinary care for Ragdolls needing our support.
We receive no funding other than from charitable donations. We
do not use monies raised for anything other than charitable aims,
so you can donate with confidence, knowing that your money will
be used to better the life of a needy Ragdoll cat. Every penny
really does count to us and so whatever you can give, however
small, will be gratefully received. To make a donation, please
