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.

Anyone else a tired parent today?

Poor Daisy is exhausted from constantly telling her kids off, Waratah just doesn’t listen the cheeky little thing 😻😹

We told Lily she’s pregnant, this was her face...

Can you guess how many kittens she has?

Thank you to our wonderful friends at West Queanbeyan Vet Hospital for squeezing us in urgently to assess little Lily.

** ADOPTABLES ** 😻😻

Our little ginger-ningas Wattle (ginger/white) and Waratah (ginger) are ready for their new home together.

They have opposite yet complimentary personalities to each other. Wattle is a quiet and cuddly little boy who isn’t too adventurous and likes a quiet environment that he’s familiar with. He loves nose bops with his foster mum and thinks he’s the boss when he’s with his foster dad. He likes to be included in this but usually when he’s in your arms or invited. He has manners (for a kitten) and is very sweet. Wattles perfect day consists of sun baking, a bit of playtime, lots of feed times and cuddles and relaxing.

Waratah is a ball of energy with no off or slow-mode buttons! He loves investigating every square inch of the house, and insists on being involved with everything his family does. Waratahs perfect day consists of “helping” with every single thing his foster carers are doing, and adventuring through every closed door.

He’s very outgoing and drags his brother Wattle along to all of the mischief and adventures he gets up to! He also plays a very caring big bro role with Wattle where he baths him and they are always found curled up together when they aren’t running around and exploring.

While Wattle may be more reserved and enjoy the finer things in life, he too has lots of energy when it comes to play time with their toys and will happily run up and down all of the cat towers in record time with his bro.

Both boys are very affectionate and playful and demand lots of attention. They haven’t mastered keeping their claws in their paws when skin is around (although they’re still slowing learning) and require an owner who is willing to ensure they are raised understanding boundaries and have lots of love.

They’re quite bonded and like to groom each other and never be too far from each other so we’d like a home together for them. They would be suitable for a home with kids over 12 years old or without kids, they love other cats and could get used to a cat-friendly dog in due course.

Like all of our kitties, both boys are vetworked (desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and parasite controlled) and will suit an indoor only home or one with a cat run/enclosure.

If you’re interested in adopting these boys please put in an EOI here: https://www.canberrapetrescue.org.au/eoi/

IF you’ve already applied in the last 90 days please just submit a quick form here: https://www.canberrapetrescue.org.au/reoi/

Please note, due to the overwhelming demand for kittens lately, we may not be able to get back to unsuccessful EOIs but rest assured it’s going to be a big and long kitten season.

Update on Rocky Early September (we’re a little behind in updates!).

We gave him a bath, have been bathing and applying ointment to his sore eyes multiple times a day, giving him his meds, and giving him lots of food and love.

His wounds are all healing so well that he has scabs falling off all through his fur, which may look yucky but is a great sign.

He’s progressing in the right direction 😻

This little cutie took us weeks of effort to finally get her off the streets and into our care!

We’ve named her Lily, she was on the streets with her mum Daisy (we guess her Mum), and we have been very worried as she’s still a kitten at 7-9month old yet sexually mature and it’s Spring!

She was very trap smart, knowing how to get food out without setting it off. So we got creative, built up her trust and finally got her off the streets. She is very happy to be reunited with Daisy and her kittens.

She made us laugh by jumping in and out of our car, almost as if she found us trying to catch her one big game 😹

Welcoming Lily to CPR where she’ll now have a life full of food, warmth and love after some time with us and some vet work 🧡
