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.

KAHA: (verb) to be strong, able, capable, courageous, intense, energetic.

Yep that describes our new little man perfectly!

This little guy came to us a week ago after he managed to get stuck inside an internal wall in a house! His finders moved heaven and earth (and some wall) to save this screaming horrified little mess.

We rushed him to the emergency vet for evaluation and treatment and he had IV fluid therapy, nutrient boosters and frequent regular feeds of formula (day and night 💤). We weren’t sure he was going to make the night due to his state of hydration.

Thankfully he made it through the night and has grown stronger and stronger every day. He’s had a couple of issues and had to see the vet again but overall he’s happy and healthy and has his foster carers very well trained with his routine - they don’t dare be late with a feed!

We didn’t have any other quarantined healthy kittens his age in care so his furry foster dad Teddy (from “teddycharcelia” on Instagram) took him on as it can be detrimental to their behaviour long term to have an only kitten at that age. He certainly loves his watchful and attentive surrogate dad 🧡

Every day/night we’ve been back at the area where he was found, trying to locate his siblings and mum as we knew he must’ve had a little family somewhere.

We’ll be sure to post more of him on our Instagram so all of you can follow his progress as he grows more and more...🐾

Raising this little guy, like any of our delicate little neonates, is VERY costly with many vet visits, medications and specialised supplies to ensure they receive the best of care.

We’d like to thank his sponsor and all of you for donating to help us raise him. Each kitten can easily cost up to $1,000 to raise and rehome, but every one is well worth it!
