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.

We couldn’t agree more that the practices of wet markets should be condemned and live animal trade shut down, along with heavily regulated and new animal protection laws enforced. The horrendous housing conditions, handling, slaughter and sale of these wild animals from around the world, and cats and dogs, is incredibly cruel.

The world needs to work together to stop this cruel industry across Asia. It was so upsetting to see on 60 minutes the wet markets in China still operating, even after the COVID-19 outbreak had began to ravage the world.

Let’s hope Australia can help shut down this horrible trade...

Our beautiful boys Mozzarella (now Lenny) and Blue (now George) have gone to their loving forever home with Kerrin and Martin last week.

In lieu of not being able to do adoption photos right now, here’s some even better pics showing the boys in their new home 😻😻

Looks like they love their new parents, watching TV and running a muck. Guess they’re also in charge of the office duties now too!

What a beautiful happy ever after for these deserving munchkins 🧡

Our beautiful Cammi (Camembert) went to her new forever home today with Virginia 🧡

We’re thrilled she’s found such a suitable home where she can blossom even more and continue to live a life of luxury being spoilt, especially after everything she went through in her past.

It was also nice to meet Virginia (from a distance!) after chatting via video 🖥 Gosh technology is great these days!

Certainly feels a little empty without Cammi here, but we couldn’t ask for a better outcome for her.

Due to our COVID-19 protocols we aren’t able to get any adoption photos but we are very happy she’s found a loving forever home and can’t wait to see her continue gaining more and more confidence as she settles in 😻
