Canberra Pet Rescue is a registered not-for-profit charity saving animals in most desperate need through our foster carer network in homes across Canberra. While we rescue all pets in need that we can, we primarily rescue cats and kittens abandoned on the streets, on ‘death-row’ at pounds, and who are surrendered or suddenly lose their human.

Why cats as the main focus right now? There are thousands in desperate need living in our suburbs in Canberra or taken to pounds or shelters.

We ensure all animals in our care receive quality food and treatment, lots of love and care, and are in a sanitary and stress-free environment.

We are run by volunteers and survive solely off donations from our incredible community, so please give generously. 

We aim to ensure that no matter how they come into this world, every pet 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.

Indie knew how busy her foster parents and all of our volunteers have been lately so she thought she’d help with the gardening…

When her foster mum asked her where her beloved plant was, she promptly ran over and showed her the remains of it!! 😅🤣😭

She’s such a helpful little pupper 🥰

Our 8 gorgeous little puppies really need names and their foster carers really need help as they’re going broke with the amount of food they eat!!

They desperately need sponsors to help us afford their care and give them beautiful names 🧡🧡🧡🧡

Sponsorship is a $125 donation and you get to name your sponsored puppy. The theme we’ve chosen for these cuties is “Food Snacks” (see pic attached to help you get creative)!

Sponsorship helps contribute towards things for their care and upbringing like premium quality food, cleaning supplies, medications, nutrient boosters, and medical expenses.

If you would like to sponsor one of them, please send us a message and mention which one 🙏 There are 5 girls and 3 boys.

Equally if you’d like to contribute towards their care to enable us to continue to save more furbabies in need, please donate here:

**Donations and sponsorship are tax deductible 😸**

Please note: they aren’t ready for adoption so we aren’t taking enquiries yet but they’ll be available in due course!

ADOPTABLES: Jasmine (left) and Poppy (right) are ready for new homes!!! We’ve opened EOIs for these two adorable little girls and will commence interviews shortly!

They will need a loving and patient owner willing to build their confidence more. Poppy still gets afraid of the world at times so needs a quiet and gentle environment and both girls are interested in making friends with adult cats and will be ok with dog with a gentle introduction.

They don’t have to go to a home together but that would be their preference and ours 🐾

You can read their profiles and apply 👇



Please SHARE and LIKE to find these girls their forever home(s) 🙏🧡
