168 Cats and Kittens Rescued from 2012 Olympic Park Demolition Site

Thanks to all who sent letters to the International Olympic Committee and members of the Olympic Delivery Authority, the Celia Hammond Animal Trust (CHAT) has been allowed a limited period of time to access the site of the 2012 Olympic Games!

On January 15th, a meeting was held between CHAT and the ODA to discuss their access to the site in order to rescue the remaining cats. The group has been granted permission to access certain areas at particular times. According to their website, they recently trapped a pregnant mom and rescued two cats that were found taking shelter in out-of-service buses.

This is a victory for CHAT and the cats facing uncertain death from all of the destruction taking place around them. BUT there is still more cats that need rescued and the group is still fighting the ODA for access to other areas of the site. Please keep the letters coming and we can see that ALL of the remaining cats are removed from the site before it is too late!
