Charity Commission registration number 275238.

Opening hours Monday to Friday 10 - 1pm (including Bank Holidays), amd also 12 - 3pm Saturday and Sunday.
Tel 01206 864284, no appointment needed.

We are only a rehoming charity. If you find an ill or injured cat please take it to the nearest vet asap. They have a duty of care to treat an animal to prevent it suffering.

Unfortunately we do not have enough helpers to answer all the phone calls that we get - please visit us during opening hours or email us instead on mail@colchestercatrescue.org.uk

  • Please see our CatChat page (see the link above) for photos of some of the cats we have.

 

  • Also, see our Facebook page for more photos and background to the cats we have, and what is happening at the Sanctuary.

 

  • As well as about 20 cats that live with us because we have not been able to rehome them, we have at least 50 cats available for rehoming most of the time.



  • We do not usually take in any pedigrees except perhaps Persian cats. If you are looking to rescue a pedigree cat (they need rehoming too just like ordinary moggies) please go to our Cat Related Links page and go to the CatChat website at www.catchat.org then Adopt a Cat, then Pedigree Rescues which are shown A - Z by breed.

 

  • All cats have been fully vet checked prior to admission to the Sanctuary - flea and worm treated, vaccinated, and neutered (if over 4 months old), microchipped, all of which can cost up to about £150 from most vets. Please bear this in mind when making donations to us.

 

  • Please read the page "Homing A Cat..." before looking at the cats listed below. You will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire about your circumstances and other suitability checks. We try to ensure that we rehome a cat suitable for your circumstances.

 

  • Please do not be offended if you are refused a particular cat or kitten. We take our rehoming responsibilities seriously and if we think a cat isn’t suitable, we will explain why.
    We get to know them very well and we have many years' experience predicting where, and with whom, a cat or kitten will fit in so that they do not have to come back to us, which is very disorientating for them.

 

  • All cats are short haired, unless otherwise stated.

 

We have all ages, sizes and colours of cats at the Sanctuary, some to go in pairs, and some on their own.

It is a good idea to visit the Sanctuary during opening hours, as we have up to 50 cats for rehoming, and often their photos are not yet on our website.

For photos of some of the cats that we currently have, please go to our Facebook page or to our Catchat page (see links above.)

 
 
Please note we are open up to and including Sunday 20th December 2015 (12 - 3pm).
 
We are then closed for Christmas, Monday 21st - Sunday 27th December inclusive.
 
We re-open on Bank Holiday Monday 28th December to Friday 1st January 10 -1pm as normal (including opening on the Bank Holiday and New Year's Eve/New Year's Day.)
 

Opening hours:- 12 - 3pm Saturdays & Sundays, and 10 - 1pm Monday to Friday inclusive (including Bank Holidays.)
