** Please note that we are not currently accepting applications for any Kittens and unlikely that we will have any kittens in our care until April/May. Please do not send an application for a Kitten until you see Kittens either advertised on website or facebook page – Thanks Purrs Admin 

**We are continuing with rehoming, just with updated procedures to account for Covid-19.  Please bear with us!

Please note we only rehome kittens in pairs, away from busy/main roads and not indoor only.

Please continue to stay safe! **

Welcome to Purrs Cat Rescue!

Purrs is a non profit organisation based in Essex, England. We aim to rescue stray and abandoned cats and find their forever homes.

We are a small group of dedicated cat lovers. Once the cats have been rescued, we foster them until they are ready for re-homing. We have them vaccinated and neutered or spayed. They are given a thorough health check by the vet and all the cats are micro chipped. We also flea and worm treat them.

Then, once we feel they are ready to leave our foster carers, we find them new and loving homes around Essex.

We rely on help from the public to help fund our rescue missions and we’d be nothing without you and your help, whether it be from donations, sharing on social media, fostering or adopting. The rescue is run only by volunteers from our homes in spare time – around jobs, families and other commitments.

Here you’ll find details on cats for adoption, our success stories, how you can donate to our rescue and how to get in touch!


Statement from British Vetinary Society re: a recent BCC news headline

“The British Veterinary Association has clarified its position in light of a report on the BBC news website relating to cats and coronavirus which may have worried people. The headline of the article suggested that veterinary advice was to keep all cats indoors, but BVA has explained this advice is only in relation to cats in infected households or where people are self-isolating and only where possible.”
