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 have had sessions on hold due to COVID but hope to hold more sessions very soon! 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.

*URGENT: LONG TERM CARER NEEDED*
These two little female Guinea pigs need someone to care for them (separately) for the next 6-12mths.

Their owner has just escaped Domestic violence and cannot keep them at current accomodation.

The younger one (one year old) is very social and ideally needs to be with another young female Guinea pig or someone at home lots, the older one (10 years) isn’t so fond of the younger one and ideally may enjoy the company of an older female Guinea pig or homebody.

Please send us a private message if you can help.

Please share widely to Guinea Pig lovers in and around Canberra 🧡
