Charity registered in Scotland SC045350
Our project takes its name from Finn – a cat who was beaten and left for dead but who has since been rescued
and found a safe home. Thanks to some love, care and attention, Finn is much improved, happier and no longer
lives in fear. In his new surroundings he has been able to move on from the bad experiences of the past.What
works for cats also works for people!
A supportive environment enables all of us to grow, make friendships and tackle isolation and stress.
