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.

Canberra Pet Rescue is feeling thankful at Andersens Fyshwick.Tuesday, May 19th, 2020 at 9:44am
These guys...LEGENDS!! During the horrid bushfires Andersen’s were instrumental in helping us with our bushfire appeal. This is a looong overdue thank you!

They happily drove around town in their very tall van to help us move donations and stock feed, and when we were between premises they let us use their valuable floor space so we could keep going 🚛 💪

We love these guys and can’t thank them enough, they also have some great looking flooring in their showroom! Please support the businesses that support us.

Just give them a call or drop in if you’re considering new flooring 👍

Meet Theo (ginger boy) and Ash (blue grey girl) who are a bonded pair of 2.5yr old kitties looking for their new loving home together.

Both kitties are low maintenance, Ash is quite chilled and Theo is a bit more outgoing. They love lounging around in the sun, playtime with toys and being with the family and having their alone time together. They are ok with older kids (above approx. 8yrs old) but haven’t met dogs.

In their former home they were used to a large sunroom and cat towers around and will suit a house with lots of room and sunny spots. They are indoor only, with access to a cat run, enclosure or catio (although not necessary).

They both eat Royal Canin Digestive food due to tummy upsets on other commercial food so will need to remain on this.

They’re all vet worked (desexed, vaccinated and microchipped).

Please note: They MUST go to a suitable loving home TOGETHER as they’re a bonded pair who have been together since they were 4 weeks old.

Adoption fee for both is $300.

Please fill in an EOI if you’d like to adopt these gorgeous furbabies:

*TRUCK NEEDED*

We need a truck (and driver) to get 100 bales of hay plus a bunch of other feed and items down to the South Coast for some very hungry animals.

We have approval for this delivery and to minimise risks we would like a single truck driver instead of convoy to protect everyone involved. PPE and new protocols will be used. Needed as soon as humanely possible please - no firm timeframe just ASAP.

If you can help please send us a message 🙏🧡

Please share 🙏
