Cat Rescue Christchurch Charitable Trust is located in Christchurch, New Zealand, and focuses on reducing stray cat overpopulation by using the trap, neuter, return (TNR) method. Stray kittens who are under 8 weeks of age are socialised, desexed and rehomed.
Cat Rescue Christchurch also promotes the desexing of companion and stray cats whom people are feeding, and the early desexing of kittens before being rehomed from any adoption facility.
Cat Rescue Christchurch relies on donations from generous people to fund its work. We do not have a shelter but instead have volunteers who foster and socialise our cats and kittens in their own homes until they are ready for their forever homes.
Over 3000 cats have been desexed or rescued and rehomed by Cat Rescue Christchurch since our organisation was founded in 2006, preventing many thousands more unwanted cats from being born.
I am Cat….
I am Cat by author and illustrator Melisa Sinclair. Is a beautiful childrens book and Melisa has kindly offered $10 from every book sale to go directly to Cat Rescue and this is a great way to fundraise for our increasing vet bills. If you’re looking to grab a copy, simply order directly from the publisher Blockhill Books. The book is priced at $22. Remember to choose the option ‘donate some of my purchase’ and click ‘Cat Rescue Christchurch’ when you place your order. We appreciate your support!
