Loving homes needed NOW


We are short of all the following items:

  • Igloo style beds
  • Cat carriers
  • Cat collars with buckles (not safety collars)
  • Sachets of cat food and packs of biscuits (We have so many adult cats to feed)

We are also always in need of

  • used towels
  • hot electric beds
  • goods to sell to raise funds
  • volunteers to foster
  • volunteers to help at the cattery, and
  • loving homes for our rescued cats

Please see our "How can I help" page for more info.


Lots of our supporters are unable to make the journey to us to donate food or other goods for our cats. Our new Amazon wish list means you can order from the comfort of your home and Amazon deliver straight to us!

Please see our Amazon wish list.


Our lovely Charlie was put to sleep in October 2011. He had had wonderful life up until a few weeks before, when his illness started to progess and he began to suffer muscle wastage, similar to motor neurone disease. There was a real chance that the illness would culminate in him choking to death so we had to let him go to sleep. Charlie is now in the garden where he had spent so many happy years.

We have made the decision to rent a shop for the charity to raise much needed funds to help us take long term care of a number of sick kittens. The shop will be on Wood Street, St Annes on Sea (on the same side as Wetherspoons, a couple of shops down).

Of course, we need to stock the shop and also need volunteers to help us run it. As the shop is empty of fittings, we need display units, a counter, plus sturdy racks for hanging clothes.

The shop will open for business on Saturday 27 September. Any donations of stock can be brought to the shop from Wednesday onwards, as we will be there manically preparing it for the Big Day.

If you are willing and able to spare as much or as little time as you can spare to help in the shop, please contact us for more information as soon as possible.

The details of our poorly pussycats can be found on the “Cats needing sponsors” page. Or click here

Welcome to Cat Rescue

Thank you for visiting our Cat Rescue website today Wednesday, 22nd October.

Cat Rescue takes care of homeless distressed cats and tries to place them with people for cat adoption or cat fostering. Some cats cannot be fostered or adopted so Cat Rescue gives them a home at the cattery and seeks sponsorship to help provide funds for their long-term care.

Find out how to adopt a Cat Rescue cat.

Cat Rescue is a registered charity and relies on membership subscriptions, donations, collections, and fundraising events to meet its costs. We also occasionally have donated goods for sale direct on our Merchandise page. Cat Rescue does not have any paid staff and relies completely on its wonderful volunteers to carry out its work. As a result, every penny raised is spent on the cats.

You can read about the Whys, Whens and Hows of Cat Rescue on our About Us page. We are pleased with our achievements, sad when we hear one of our cat family has passed over the Rainbow Bridge and buoyed up again with the progress of the Kittens we help survive and prosper.

Charlie, our very special cat, has his own column, Charlie's Chatter, which will give you a Cat Rescue perspective from one of our permanent residents.

Our Members have their own place on the website to publish anecdotes, jokes, pictures, appeals or whatever else they feel might be interesting to others, or might elicit help or advice. Membership is only £5 a year! If you want to post details of your missing cat you may do so on the Members Chit Chat page, provided you have first taken out a standing order for Cat Rescue membership.

We give details of forthcoming Events at which we would love to meet you and have a chat. Come and see us and take your opportunity to spin our Wheel of Chance

If you would like to know more about Cat Rescue, or become a Volunteer or a Member, or make a Donation or see the cats with a view to adoption, fostering or sponsorship or … for whatever reason … you can use our contact page to get in touch
