VOLUNTEERING for RAIN
RAIN does not have its own premises (a boarding cattery is used for rescues) so the charity CANNOT offer hands-on cat care volunteering. However RAIN welcomes supporters carrying out their own FUNDRAISING activities. Please get in touch if you can help - leaflets and info boards can be provided for your own event to support RAIN.contact us

Who are we?
Rescued Animals in Need is made up of a group of hard working volunteers in the Sevenoaks area. Our main aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and then RE-HOME cats and kittens, and to provide any help that is needed in terms of general care and veterinary treatment.
Please note we work with cats and kittens only. We don't have our own premises as we are a small, volunteer led charity. We use a boarding cattery for our rescued animals and for this reason we are limited at any one time as to how many animals we can manage. We can only assist with re-homeable cats and kittens.
What area does RAIN cover?
Although only a small charity, Rescued Animals in Need covers a wide area south-east of London and includes: Bromley and surrounds, Orpington area, Sevenoaks, Edenbridge, Tonbridge, West Malling, Kings Hill, Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Westerham and surrounds, Biggin Hill and surrounds.

When Animals are Rescued by RAIN
As soon as animals come into RAIN's care they are taken to a Veterinary Surgeon where they receive any necessary attention. All animals are vaccinated and neutered, if this has not already been done, and are routinely treated for worms and fleas. On veterinary advice, any cats felt to be at risk are blood-tested for certain diseases. Animals are then settled into the boarding cattery that RAIN uses and cared for whilst a permanent home is sought for them. Homes are sought for the animals through advertising, in local papers and through this website.
