Canberra Pet Rescue is a registered not-for-profit charity (incorporated association) based in Belconnen, but with foster carers across Canberra. We primarily rescue cats and kittens on ‘death-row’ at pounds, but also take those who have been surrendered or abandoned.

We aim to ensure that no matter how they come into this world, every cat/kitten we save is given the chance to find a happy and loving forever home.

Events- Cats on Mats

Shhhhhhh…the kittens will be back soon!

We held Canberra’s first ever Cats on Mats (yoga with kittens) session on Friday the 20th of January. Our kittens loved their yoga session and endless pats at Canberra’s first ever Cats on Mats sessions! We all had tonnes of fun and you can read an article about it from the Canberra Times here. All proceeds went to Canberra Pet Rescue and all the kittens that were helped because of this thank you!

After 11 successful (and sold out!) sessions we are currently getting another few litters ready for our next sessions. This takes a long time to ensure we have suitable kittens and the litters are all cross-socialised and healthy, so bare with us as our kittens well-being is our highest priority.

Ensure you keep an eye out for the upcoming Cats on Mats sessions on the events page.

😺Pretty little Lara needs a loving new home ASAP...

Lara has been a much loved part of her family since she was a tiny kitten. Unfortunately, they now have to go interstate to care for their aging and unwell parents at short notice and for uncertain time periods. They want to do what's best for her and find her a new loving home.

Lara has a lovely personality and is a real "people-cat". She is extremely gentle and likes to be wherever people are. She makes visitors feel very loved.

She loves cuddling as close as possible on the couch, sitting on your chest, or hopping up onto the desk next to the computer so she can chase the "mouse" on the screen! She is very good when you tell her to get down - just looks a bit put out but understands. She particularly loves being brushed or rubbed under the chin.

Lara got on very well with her older cat sibling and missed her when she died, but has been an only cat since then. She loves to look out of the window and talk to the birds, but has been a contented inside only cat.

She has always been healthy, and although she is fourteen years old she has a clean bill of health from the vet.

Lara has been vet worked and has a reduced adoption fee for a senior cat.

Please PM us if you'd like to meet her 😸
