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.

Thank you to our beautiful friends at Hong Kong Masks Australia who handmade and donated animal-themed masks to us to protect us and the community as we continue to help lots of pet owners and animal rescuers, and of course animals, in our community during these difficult times.

We’re blown away by their love and generosity to making sure we stay safe and protect everyone 🧡

The more we can do now to protect ourselves and each other during these unprecedented times the larger difference it’ll make to how we get through it all, together.

If you’re out in the community during these times please consider wearing a mask, along with physical distancing, hand hygiene and most of all care for each other 🧡

HK Masks Aust have a free pattern and tutorial and lots of info available here:

We urgently need to get as much animal food and supplies out to animals in need over this next two week period before any further lockdowns.

These wildlife sanctuaries and pet owners are finding it really tough after being hit by bushfires and now COVID impacts and are all being helped by our PetAssist and RescueAssist programs. We have essential animal food and items we’ve been getting out to them all over the last SIX MONTHS and now we need to get a large amount to them while the restrictions are still lifted.

We have EIGHT jam packed transport trips needed over the next fortnight, all are within 3 hours of Canberra. Some require 4WDs and others cars are fine for.
We also need someone to kindly pickup some gorgeous cats in desperate need of rescuing and bring them into our care.

All precautions will be taken and PPE used to protect volunteers and everyone else.

Please join our new CPR Transport group if you’re able and willing to help over the next two weeks, all details are in the group:

Please note: due to our CPR COVID precautions, we can’t have extra hands for packing for these trips but are looking forward to the other side of this pandemic so we can see you all again! 😽

**PLEASE SHARE to anyone who may be willing and able to help**

Check out this EPIC donation of FOUR TONNES of Optimum cat food from our friends at Mars Petcare for our PetAssist and RescueAssist programs to help pet owners and rescue groups in need in our community right now 🧡

What an amazing community effort to get this huge delivery to us - our friends at Mars generously donated the food, our friends at Border Express got it all to us from interstate free of charge!!
Then our SUPERSTAR volunteer Andreas who runs GreenEdge GardenScape helped Rob at Border Express load it all (two pallets had to be hand loaded) and then he got it to our warehouse in Belconnen where the amazing Liam who runs Masterlift Forklifts was waiting with his super awesome forklift, and they unloaded it all!!


Steve, Rob, Liam, Andres and your teams - THANK YOU ALL 🧡🙏🧡🙏🐾 You’ve made a LOT of cats and pet owners very happy!!! 🧡🧡🧡

You know where to go now if you need petfood, landscaping, forklifts or freight transport 😸
Please support these amazing businesses that support us and our community 🧡

Remember, if you or someone you know needs help with pet food and items during these uncertain times, please submit a form: https://www.canberrapetrescue.org.au/petassist/

Jade has found the perfect toy to “bury” her food under to save it for later!!😹

It’s a strange thing they do instinctively... burying (like they do their faeces in litter) their leftover food so they can come back to it later without scavengers finding and eating it.

We didn’t think they’d cover it under the fake pizza toy 🍕 but it looks hilarious 😹🤣

It doesn’t matter how many times you rehearse something with kittens...nothing goes to plan! 😹😅

Here’s their announcement in scattered pics!

We’ll have their profiles (and some of our other kittens) up on our Facebook page this week, so if you’re looking to add a furbaby or pair of furbabies to your family then please take the time to read through their profiles and feel free to put in an EOI (links will be provided on Facebook).

Please note, we don’t accept applications before we put their profiles up and there has been a lot of interest to adopt kittens in these unprecedented times so please be patient 🙏🧡
