they offer discount prices on feliway and one of the generic frontline flea spot-on's aswell.
We sell the feliway at the shelter to make some money and offer it at cost price to fosterers. We also sell the small bottles to adopters at a reduced price to help with introductions and moving to a new home.

Just to say for all rescues - it might be worth joining if purely form some of the (few) discounts they have from suppliers. The main one I am keeping my eye on at the moment is Trigene as we are running low and cost to members is £86 for 20 litres of the stuff or £60 for 3x5L. One order a year of that well covers any membership fees....

Try here for the programme

I'm just hoping that it will ultimately prove a worthwhile investment..and we are lucky to have someone who will step in to look after cats  :)

when we joined we had to fill in an application form and get references and someone to vouch for us.

Hmm - I don't know which organisations are still part of that 'Association' but in all honesty there was at least one a number of years ago that really should have been shut down due to the poor conditions and terrible management........I'm not living in that area anymore so don't know what the situation is but imagine it's not improved very much. I don't know how they were allowed to be part of it - I didn't think the national rescues would have wanted to be in any way associated with them.

£60's not bad but we have declined due to cost (and cats to see to!)

Shame the link wouldnt even work for me, but would have liked to decline and give my reasons similar to yours Angie
