** In line with the announcement from the Prime Minster last night that people should only be leaving their home for essential activities – rehoming is now suspended and we are not taking any new foster applications until further notice and the situation is reviewed by the government.

Any essential tasks such as urgent vet visits and buying/collecting supplies will be carrying out adhering to self distancing guidelines, but it is not responsible for us to encourage new adoption or fostering applications at this time. We must keep our volunteers and our adopters safe to help stop the spread of the virus. Battersea, RSPCA and Dogs Trust and many others have made the same decision.

Our foster cats are all safe in their foster homes with their foster mums and dads. Please stay safe and stay home **


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 rescues and how to get in touch!
