Welcome to
The Kit Wilson Trust
For Animal Welfare


At the KWT we rescue and re-home unwanted animals, mainly cats and dogs, and have a wildlife rehabilitation programme and emergency help line.

The Trust's Rescue Centre is also home to horses, donkeys, cats, goats, birds and small mammals where, in the interest of their welfare, they remain in our care.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

The Trust was established in 1975 when Katherine Wilson (always known as 'Kit'), a well known cat show judge and campaigner for animal welfare, left a small legacy to be used for the benefit of animals.

A cornerstone of the Trust's founding policy then, as now, was to promote the spaying and neutering of pets. The need for the Trust's work in rescuing and re-homing unwanted cats and dogs would be greatly reduced if there were fewer kittens and puppies being born. Animals rescued by the Trust are the lucky ones - thousands of unwanted pets are destroyed every year by other organisations and authorities.

WHAT WE DO

From a modest beginning the Trust has grown and in 1986 set up its own Animal Rescue Centre in Hadlow Down, near Uckfield, in East Sussex.

In addition to the animal rescue and re-homing work, the Trust has become increasingly involved in wildlife rehabilitation and operates a wildlife emergency help line.

Over the years, the Rescue Centre has also become a permanent home to many animals that it is not possible or desirable to re-home; these include horses, donkeys, cats, goats, birds and small mammals.

HOW WE WORK

The Trustees give their time on a voluntary basis, including the Chairman who has overall responsibility for animal welfare, the organisation of the Rescue Centre, its staff and volunteers.

Funds are raised mainly through local supporters' groups, individual donations, legacies, animal sponsors and our Charity Shops.

We receive no Local Authority,Government or Lottery funding, relying on our supporters to continue our work.
