Janette’s legacy of love, care and compassion lives on

Lymington Cat & Kitten Rescue continues to be co-managed by Jon Hancock and Theresa Foot following the death in 2017 of our beloved founder and inspirational leader, Janette Frankland.

Janette passed away peacefully at home after battling cancer for nearly a year. She was 73.

She left an indelible mark on the world of animal welfare. Her determination and generosity were beyond compare, and many thousands of cats and kittens owe their lives and their happiness to her inspirational work.

It was always Janette’s wish that our rescue should continue to operate after her passing, and we are delighted to have been able to do this.

“It is an absolute privilege for both Theresa and me,” said Jon. “Janette is irreplaceable and we all miss her terribly, but we are deeply honoured that she placed her trust in us and we continue to do everything in our power to build on her wonderful work.”
