About Us

Bluebell Ridge is owned and operated by the Sussex East and Hastings Branch of the RSPCA, but it is a separate charity within the national body and is entirely self-financing. Each year the Branch has to raise over £150,000 to keep the centre open and we heavily rely on the generosity of local individuals, businesses and groups. 

Each year the centre helps to rescue and rehome over 200 animals in Hastings and Rother and we also neuter many hundreds of local cats and Bull breeds to prevent suffering. 

We take in stray and unwanted cats that desperately need homes and we work closely with the RSPCA Inspectors in the area. We also take in cats from Eastbourne and parts of Kent. Our aim is to help animals who have suffered abuse and cruelty by helping them trust again and finding them good kind homes, which they deserve.

The centre is run by 6 trained staff members and a dedicated group of 50 volunteers. The branch also has a group of voluntary Trustees who meet once a month to discuss matters that go towards the effective running of the centre. The cattery holds a licence to accommodate up to 60 cats and we rehome 20-25 cats a month.

We believe that every animal deserves to have a happy life.

 

A little local history...

The branch originally took in cats at Victoria Avenue, St Leonard's on Sea but this closed down in 1992 and was sold in 1994 due to significant building works required. The branch, together with Mid-Sussex and Eastbourne branch raised funds for a new cattery. The Treasurer, Noel Hagerty played a key role and put together the first business plan for the new Cat Centre. Noel sadly died before the project was completed and his ashes are buried in our paddock overlooking the cattery.

The cattery site was purchased in the Summer of 1998 and was originally a kennels called Capricorn. The old kennel buildings (which were on the left of the cattery) were demolished and the new cattery block was built. The house on the site was also completely refurbished.

The Cattery and the office (which was originally the garage belonging to the house) were equipped out at the beginning of 2000 ready for the opening. The first cats arrived in March 2000 and have continued to do so ever since.

Tortie female, 3 years old.Amber is a beautiful girl in looks and character. She loves a fuss and can be very sociable and affectionate. Occasionally she will prefer a little space to herself, but she'll soon come back for more attention. Amber would like a home without other cats as she is not keen on her fellow felines. She has recovered well from her pelvic injury and looks and feels a million dollars in comparison to when she arrived here. She is our brave little soldier. She is now very keen to get into a new loving home.
Black and white DSH female, 12 years old. Shadow is a little sweetie who has really grown in confidence since her arrival at the cattery. She loves a fuss and snuggles up on your lap for a snooze. She is looking for a fairly quiet home as she can still be a little wary of sudden noise and movement. She will be a very loveable companion. She could possibly settle with another cat with a similar nature. She's looking for someone, or a family to love since her owner had to leave their propert and sadly were unable to take Shadow with them.
Tortie Female, 11 years old approx. Tabitha is a very loving girl with lots of love to give. She likes to sit on your lap and enjoys human company and loves to be groomed. She often meows to greet you and invites you to give her a fuss. Although she is a creature of habit and likes her routine, she is looking forward to finding a new home after having to say goodbye to her owner, who sadly passed away. She could possibly be an indoor cat, depending on the size of the space available, please come and visit her and have a chat with a team member.
