Thames Valley Animal Welfare

TVAW is a small charity based in the Henley on Thames, Reading, and Maidenhead areas and aims to rehome its cats and kittens within approximately a 20 mile radius of Henley.

We specialise in the rescue of abandoned, stray and unwanted cats and kittens. The animals are accommodated in purpose-built heated cat houses in the gardens of a team of volunteer fosterers until suitable permanent homes are found for them.

We provide veterinary treatment as required and spay or castrate all adult cats before rehoming. We undertake never to euthanise any cat unless it is on the advice of a veterinary surgeon.

The work of the charity is undertaken entirely by volunteers and we are completely dependent on donations to fund our work.

We also operate a Lost and Found register which attempts to reunite lost pets with their owners. It handles enquiries from the general public, police and vets seven days a week.
