Canberra Pet Rescue is a registered not-for-profit charity (incorporated association), with cats and kittens cared for in foster carers homes 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.

Cats on Mats

The original and the best!

We held Canberra’s first ever Cats on Mats (yoga with kittens) session on the 20th of January 2017. Our kittens loved their yoga session and we received some amazing feedback! You can read an article about it from the Canberra Times here.

Due to the overwhelming positive feedback and support, we have successful ran over 20 Cats on Mats (yoga with kittens) sessions now!! We have a dedicated and amazing group of volunteer yoga instructors who have come up with an incredible yoga routine for all levels to have as much fun with the kittens as possible.

Our kittens love the sessions which hugely help with their socialisation skills. The zen atmosphere in the studio makes the kittens feel like they’re in control of the class and they like to meet everyone with their funny interactive antics!

We advertise these events on our Facebook when they are coming up, and they sell out fast so stay tuned!

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

**REHOMING**

Meet Missie, a 1 year old female American Staffy X Shar Pei X with a gorgeous temperament. She’s had a DNA test to show her linage as a gorgeous mixed breed.

Missie is very much an inside company dog she loves company!! She doesn't mind going outside, loves laying in the sun ⛅

She walks quite well on her lead, and is even more calm walking at night time than day.

She is very very playful! Loves to wrestle with her humans and other dogs that are willing 😂
Her favourite activities are swimming, and finding human and squeaky tennis balls, then bringing the ball back but refusing to drop the ball 😂 she loves chasing toys but not so much being chased. Her current owners are still trying very hard to not let her jump up on people! She's very happy and jumps so will require some additional training as she thinks she’s little and can jump all over people.

She is SUPER affectionate once she gets to know you! She is also very excitable!!
She can be very standoffish with mostly men at first, she will give them a good barking at but if they get down to her level let her sus them out and gently and calmly approach to pet her she warms up quite quickly.

She has only met children at the dog park and in the pet shops so unsure whether she would be good with children. She hasn’t met cats so also unsure if she would be good with them.

She goes to the dog park quite regularly and gets along good with other dogs but when on a lead she can be quite protective against other dogs being near her humans.

Her current owners are sure she would love company at her new home so they would have to meet and play to know if they’ll get along.

She doesn't know how to jump fences, but can easily knock down a baby gate if inside a house.

Missie is one of the most happy cutest loveable staffys ❤️ her personality is beautiful and she gets so many compliments on her coat!

Her current owners are rehoming her due to no fault of her own, they have increased work commitments so are no longer able to provide her with the attention and care she deserves, so are seeking a more suitable forever home for her.

She is fully vaccinated, desexed and microchipped. Her adoption fee is a $200 donation directly to Canberra Pet Rescue.

If you’d like to meet her or find out more please contact her current owner Ciara on 0425154494.

We’d like to introduce Tom and Jerry! 😻😻

Jerry came to us first, he was surrendered by someone who couldn’t care for him. He is certainly very playful and affectionate, quite underweight (all skin and bones) and had a belly full of worms. He’s only 9wks old.

Then a day later, a guy found little Tom at a remote site, all alone, cold and starving. His lovely wife cleaned him up, filled his belly with kitten food, showed him what cuddles are, and got him to us. He had some lively fleas, but much more fat on his body and is certainly a snuggler. He is a very food motivated 8wk old.

Their introduction consisted of Tom diving head first into a bowl of food while Jerry leaped on top of him and wrapped all four of his paws around him like a teddy bear, much to Toms shock! Jerry was clearly desperate for a little brother 🧡

They make the purrrrfect little partners in crime...they both love wrestling, food, more wrestling, more food, tipping over the rest of the food, making a mess, more wrestling, and making more mess 😹

If you would like to help them and our extremely large vet bills right now, please donate 🙏 (any amount will help)

Our beautiful little princess Daisy has gone to her new purrrrfect home with her parents Rachel and Ed, and fur-brother Cooper.

She had a bit of a hiccup by going to another loving family but after a week she came back to us due to no fault of her own, as her potential fur-sibling made it abundantly clear they wanted to be an only child.

Then her beautiful newly wedded parents came and met her and it was love at first sight!

We’re hoping her new fur-sibling Cooper will love her as much as we do, she just loves everyone! So far so good 😻

Hoping Daisy has finally found her furrrrever home to settle into and be spoilt rotten 🤞🧡 @ Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
