Celebrating 120 Years

We have an important birthday and would love you to help us celebrate by sharing your memories with us.

The sharp-eyed ones out there will have noticed that we have been helping cats since 1897. So this year we want to commemorate all the hard work and dedication of the many staff, volunteers and supporters of the Sheffield Cats Shelter over the last 120 years.

To kick start the birthday celebrations we are planning an exhibition to tell everyone about our history and how we have moved with the times. So want to hear from anyone who has a memory of The Sheffield Cats Shelter to share with us.

We are looking for stories from the last century, but the further in the past, the better!

If you had any connection with The Sheffield Cats Shelter in the last century we’d love to hear from you. Maybe you were a volunteer, or did you adopt a loving pet from us? Have you got any photographs that you can share with us?

As a starter for ten – if you know anything about William Shaw in this photo, we would really like to know. The photo was taken sometime around 1929. Have you got an older relative that might have driven a van for The Sheffield Cats Shelter?


Here are other photos, can you tell us anything about them?

If you would like to share your story, tell us about it.
