Yorkshire cat Rescue exists to save the lives of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens in Yorkshire and beyond. 

All cats are provided with food, love, shelter and the necessary veterinary care until they find a forever loving home. They are cared for by our many fosterers across Yorkshire or at our centre in Keighley.

All the cats in our care are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given any other medical and behavioural treatment required before rehoming. We have a no-kill policy (unless recommended by vets due to quality of life). This means that we sometimes get chronically ill cats (or kittens) that can still lead a very good life (pretty much equal to any healthy cat) but have to have long-term medication and/or treatment. Any cat in our care will be cared for until we find him or her a home.

The charity’s aims are to relieve the suffering of cats who are in need of care and attention and, in particular, to provide or maintain rescue homes or other facilities for the reception and care of such unwanted animals and their treatment.

We are registered with the Charity Commission under charity number 1160138.
