Coronavirus Update


Dear Supporters

Due to the latest government announcement regarding Coronavirus the Trustees of Bury’s Stray Cat Fund have made the decision to close the Sanctuary to the public. We will not be homing cats for at least the next three weeks, however our staff and volunteers will continue to care for our cats on site.

Please do not call the Sanctuary to ask about homing cats, instead keep an eye on our website and social media for futher updates.

Donations of goods and food cannot be accepted at the Sanctuary. We would be grateful for food donations if you can spare them but if you would like to do this, please use our drop off points at Sainsburys and Tesco in Bury St. Edmunds. We also have an Amazon Wishlist if you wish to donate anything online at

We truly value all of our supporters and send you our best at this challenging time. We urge you all to follow the government guidlines by staying at home to ilmit the spread of this terrible virus.

Now please wash your paws!

The Trustees, Bury’s Stray Cat Fund


Bury’s Stray Cat Fund is set in the heart of the beautiful Suffolk countryside near historic Bury St. Edmunds.  We are an independent cat sanctuary who have been looking after cats and kittens for over 40 years.  Please see our History page to find out more about our story.


We operate within a strict radius set by our Committee – please take a look at the map to see if you are within our area. Unfortunately we are not able to home, or take in, cats, outside of this area.  Please note that we only home to permanent UK residents.

Bury’s Stray Cat Fund help felines of all ages and from all backgrounds including domestic and feral and we are very proud of our work which has led to tremendous success in caring for and re-homing many cats over the years.  We also operate a foster scheme for older cats meaning that older cats who might otherwise be overlooked are able to live happy lives in new homes.

As a charity relying solely on donations we are very thankful for the support we receive whether it be donations of money, goods or food; attendance at sales; or time to volunteer.  We have detailed ways you can help us on this website.
