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.

Quick update - we managed to rescue 18 little kittens at various ages from a few pounds last week‼️

Unfortunately they are not all well, a few are fighting for their lives right now so we're all very busy doing everything we can for them.
Two of the little 4wk olds fighting for their lives, Zazu and Shenzi, are in the pictures below. This is the sad side of rescue.

Others are doing well and going through treatment and quarantine.

🐾Furever stories....🐾

These two gorgeous boys were adopted by our star carers Jo and Tyson last season, here's a few words from them:

"Appa and Momo (aka Winky and Blinky) were rescued by CPR from the Queanbeyan pound early last year. They came in with their mum, Missy, and four other brothers and sisters. They all had the cat flu and Appa nearly lost his eye. With a lot of hard work and care, he recovered.

We adopted Momo and Appa as companions for our cat Frankie after his brother passed away. Momo absolutely adores Frankie. They always cuddle and snuggle together and if Momo wakes up and Frankie isn't near him, he will get up and find him and lay on top of him.

Frankie is like a dad to both Momo and Appa, he grooms them and curls up with them for naps.

Appa is a very affectionate cat and loves to sit on Tyson's lap while he plays computer games. He's a little bit clumsy because of his eye problems but this just adds to his charm. He's also a bit of a smelly cat due to the strong meds required to fix his eye but we wouldn't have him any other way.

We love spending our lives with our funny little guys and Frankie loves them too.

Both Appa and Momo would love to hear how their siblings and mum are doing now if possible."
