WATCH: Fraser Coast Cat Rescue in trouble

FRASER Coast Cat Rescue's nine lives are quickly coming to a close with the foster homing service ready to shut down unless funding is received.

The cat re-homing service is down to its final few hundred dollars and has a number of veterinarian bills to pay.

Without an immediate funding injection, the rescue service will be forced to close.

Fraser Coast Cat Rescue treasurer Suzie Townsend said the trouble started when the centre was hit with some unexpected bills over Christmas.

"We have a couple of kittens who got quite sick quite quickly," she said.

"We have $500 left."

The resulting vet bills have depleted the not-for-profit's group's funds along with payment of auditor's fees.

Ms Townsend said the group relies on donations from the public.

"They are few and far between - it's just not reliable donations," she said.

She also urged people to ensure their cats were desexed.

The group will continue to provide shelter for the remaining cats but will not be able to take any new rescues as they will not have the funds to care for them.
