Organisation type

Founded in 2020, we opened to cater for the needs of cats who are homeless, abandoned, through no fault of their own, are the most overlooked cats in the community. We are a rescue with the priority on saving the hardest cases. Our focus is to rehabilitate and assist cats with behavioral problems that would otherwise be euthanized. Our furry friends come in every breed, shape, colour and age.
Without the generous support of businesses, friends, family and our benefactors we couldn’t exist.

So far since we have opened in Jan 2020, we have saved and re-homed over 40 cats and kittens. We are proud to contribute to the welfare of cats and kittens in Melbourne.

We aim to not just to rehabilitate the cats in our care, but to try and educate the community in cat population control. We love our adopters to stay in touch after they have adopted a cat from us.
Please take a look around to find you next love, or reach out and help with fostering a catten in need, and help develop them for their new family.
