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.

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 🙏🧡

Happy #purrsday everyone!

Look at this progress in a matter of a few weeks... Selina here came to us as a very scared little girl, she loved to hiss as she looked at us with her big beautiful green eyes. She soon realised though it was hard to hiss and eat treats off our hands at the same time so she gave up the hissing and realised treats and cuddles are exactly what she enjoys 😻

With lots of patience, time and effort, this timid scared little girl is turning into a gorgeous loungeroom lion full of purrs and love in our Scaredy-Pants program 🦁

Excitingly, she’s off to her new loving home this afternoon where we expect she will turn back into that scared and timid little girl again for a bit but will then build up her trust and confidence with her new servant and train him well to cater for her every need 😻

We’re going to miss her but we couldn’t be happier for her 🧡🐾

Laurel 🧡 Hard to believe this smoochy little girl is still waiting for her forever home as a part of our Scaredy-Pants Program!

She’s progressed in leaps and bounds in our care, from a very timid frightened little girl to a confident snuggly kitty who loves her massages and cuddles!

We expect her to go backwards a bit when she moves to her new home but she’ll become the most beautiful kitty with her new owner who’ll need to take the time and guidance in our program to build her trust and confidence like we have.
