Now in our 52nd  year



Avon Cat Rescue has been taking in, caring for and re-homing cats and kittens since the 1960’s. Over the years the older pens and runs have been upgraded, enlarged and re-built so that we now have specialised heated accommodation for over 90 cats.  About half are our ’pensioners’, the elderly, feral, disabled, or difficult cats we are unable to home.  These cats are sponsored by supporters who give £20 a year to help towards the cost of housing these residents.   Other cats are in our purpose-built pens while waiting to find new homes.  As soon as a space becomes vacant, we send for the next cat on our waiting list, so we can help as many as possible.

We raise funds throughout the year with 3 Bazaars. two of which are on site, stalls at various other events and sales of other items such as tea-towels, canvas bags, notelets and pens.  We produce 3 newsletters each year.

Our main aim is to give every cat another chance-either of a home, or sanctuary with us.  

We always help if we can.

Avon Cat Rescue Today

In 2001 Fund raising started in earnest to build/replace our small Homing pens.

After only 18 months our supporters had raised sufficient money to build Hollies.

A further 2 Years later we had raised enough money to replace the old Willows with a brand new building with 8 separate compartments.

From tennis court and open fields to  Avon Cat Rescue

In part of the grounds, around what was a tennis court there are 9 large pens in which groups of cats known as our ‘pensioners’ live.  These are cats for which we are unable to home due to age, temperament or medical conditions.

All of our family pens have places to climb, hide, play and sleep.  In each pen is a set of bunk beds which, as you will see, are used frequently with cats often  sharing one of the beds.  Most have purpose built climbing frames to fit in with the size of the pen,

Below is a selection of photos from inside some of our family pens.
