I feel as though I'm always begging for help. The truth is that in the past no one ever came forward except the loyal, tried & trusted few; and that is so sad because we are a happy little band who would love to welcome new people to our team.
We really really really really need a reliable van driver. We have a Transit van which is used for a couple of hours on Wednesdays & the occasional Friday. Some loading & unloading is required so volunteer drivers need to be reasonably fit. The van & our shop are situated in Castlecroft, Wolverhampton, if you could help, please please call Sue on 01902 673587. Thank you xx
CAT OF THE MONTH
Darling Merlin has had his portrait taken today, we hope you agree what a handsome chap he is!
Poor Merlin has not had anyone come forward yet to offer him a home and it’s a worry. Yes he’s an older boy who has tested positive for Fiv and yes, he makes a few funny noises when he breaths, he also has stiff legs when he gets up but then so do most of us.
But Melin is so much more than this, he is such a gentle boy and so companionable too. He is as sweet and friendly with people as he is with other cats and would fit into almost any home. He has a wonderfully healthy appetite and an ample girth to prove it; but should he need further vet care in the future we would be happy to pay his vets bills. For an informal chat about him please call us on 0121 520 5119
Midlands Animal Rescue Team
Affectionately known as MART. We are a small localised charity that began in the early 1960’s in the small Shropshire village of Albrighton. Official charitable status was granted 10 years later.
WHAT WE DO
We cover as much of the West Midlands as our limitations allow.
We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals whose well-being could be in danger.
All animals in our care receive whatever veterinary treatment they require before being re-homed.
All our animals are neutered once old enough and we actively promote the benefits of neutering all pets to the general public.
OUR SET UP
We do not have a rescue centre but rely on a small band of dedicated volunteers who operate mainly from their homes. The biggest benefit of this is that we keep our running costs down. No premises to up keep & no wages to pay, mean that all our hard earned funds can be spent directly where it is needed; on the animals in our care.
Having said all of the above, nothing would give us greater pleasure or allow us to do the greatest good than being able to open our own rescue centre.
To do this we would need a large semi-rural plot of land with accommodation plus an obscene amount of money with which to run it!
Well other charities seem to have amazing things gifted to them, until it happens to us we will keep dreaming!!
In the meantime, MART is hoping to expand the work we do & are always looking to recruit more cat & dog fosterers. If you would like to offer help, please read our “join our team” pages or "foster for MART" for ideas
Welcome to our web site, we hope that you find it interesting & informative.
We have several cats in our care at the moment that have been with us longer than they should. Some because they are old, some have health issues and others need extra socialization; Some just because....?!? Please take a look at them before you decide on who should be your next “new best friend”.
We are pleased to announce that with immediate effect, each cat or dog adopted from Midlands Animal Rescue Team comes with 5 Weeks Free pet insurance – whatever their age!
Do you own a stables, small holding or similar? We often have a feral cat or two that needs a safe place to stay. Feral cats need to be confined in an outbuilding for several weeks before being allowed out to live a natural life. If you could care for a feral cat or two please call us for a chat

Peter’s story is perhaps the most astonishing cat story you will ever read. Missing for almost 9 years read about how he came into my life, how I was left devastated by his disappearance & how his homecoming has left us with more questions than answers.
