We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome stray and surrendered cats and kittens and run a very successful subsidised desexing programme.

Main image

We provide advice, subsidised desexing of cats through our Feline Fix desexing programme, assistance with veterinary treatment to low income people and a lost and found service.

We take in stray and abandoned cats and kittens, by way of wait lists, and vet check, rehabilitate and rehome them to good homes.

We have been assisting the people of Canterbury for nearly 50 years. People prefer to utilise our services as we do not euthanase unless it is recommended by a veterinarian and every other option has been explored.

We also try to match our cats to the person/situation to ensure the best possible home for them and the best possible cat for the owner.

More about us

We take in unwanted cats & kittens, provide them with the necessary veterinary treatment and then rehome them where we can. We also help with desexing, for urgent veterinary treatment, food in emergency situations & a lost and found service.

Building Work Complete!  21 July 2019

After more than three years our rebuild programme is finally complete!

We have occupied the new building, which is linked to the main cattery, for several months and it is working well as an assessment unit for incoming cats. It also includes a vet room and much-needed isolation pens.

Whilst we had planned to demolish the old eight-pack building at the rear of the property, we decided to retain most of it instead and the builders have altered it accordingly. We have a long-term goal of utilising it along with the sanctuary for un-socialised cats.

And the residential house will be rented our soon so we will have people living on site again.

We thank the many generous people who left us money in their Wills which made this possible and of course all of our volunteers and supporters.
