Who we are
Mann Cat Sanctuary is a self funded Manx registered charity founded in April 1997 in response to the ever increasing problem of unwanted cats and kittens on the Island. The Sanctuary at Ash Villa, Main Road, Santon is run by Sue Critchley with the help of a small group of dedicated volunteers. As a self funded, Manx registered Charity we depend on the generosity of compassionate people to support us.
Our Aims and objectives
- Provide a safe haven for rescued cats and kittens, and rehabilitate and rehome them where possible
- Promote animal welfare and raise awareness of the need for health care. Free information leaflets are available from the Sanctuary
- Encourage the neutering of all cats to help reduce the number of unwanted pets
The work we do
The Sanctuary provides a comfortable, stimulating home to many victims of cruelty, neglect and rejection. Many are found suitable homes - adopting a cat from the Sanctuary requires a home visit and a donation. We do not rehome cats off the Island. Any cats that are either too old or very disturbed remain safe and secure at the Sanctuary for the rest of their lives. There are also many other animals living at the Mann Cat Sanctuary, including goats, ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs, plus ducks, geese and Sheila the sheep.
