A woman who has dedicated more than 50 years to rescuing and rehoming cats has been shortlisted for the animal charity volunteer of the year award.

Ann Knowles, 70, who runs Katz Castle, Cobham, began her time working with animals by volunteering at a cat hospital in east London.

For her dedication to the furry felines, Ms Knowles has been shortlisted for the award at the second PetPlan and Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) animal charity awards.

The awards celebrate the outstanding work, dedication and commitment of animal charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK and the charity teams, volunteers and employees that go above and beyond in their mission to improve animal well-being.

Ms Knowles said: “It is extremely flattering to be recognised for my voluntary work during my time at Katz Castle and I am very happy to be a finalist. I love being in the cattery, taking care of the cats and getting to know them.”

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in Birmingham on May 8.
