Cat Rescue Christchurch is an independent Charitable Trust that 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.
