welcome to shropshire cat rescue


Shropshire Cat Rescue is one of the UK’s largest regional cat rescue and rehoming centres and is based in Shrewsbury. The charity has been caring for and re-homing rescued and unwanted cats and kittens for over 21 years. In that time we have looked after over 8,000 cats. We provide shelter, veterinary care, food and lots of love and cuddles to hundreds of abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens every year. We also care for feral colonies utilising a recognised trap, neuter and release (TNR) programme.

Finding wonderful new homes for

unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens is a huge part of what we do. We work hard to make the adoption process as simple as possible to match our cats with their forever homes.

Recently, TV icon Dr Scott came to visit us at Shropshire Cat Rescue and chat to a couple of our volunteers about the work that we do in keeping our cats healthy and happy. 

Check out our episode here! 


To ensure our volunteers are available to show you around we request that you complete the Visiting The Shelter Form.

Our volunteers will be in touch to book you in, please look out for an email from 

If you have donations you want to drop off at the shelter, these can be left in the donations cupboard if no volunteers are about.

Thank you for understanding and your support.

sponsor a cat

Sponsoring one of our resident cats is a great way of supporting the work of the charity. Click below to find out more  - the only difficulty is choosing which one to sponsor as they are all so adorable.
retirement village

For some cats due to their age or illnesses, rehoming is not possible. That is why we have created our very own luxury retirement village which provides plenty of home comforts, veterinary care, and love for our more mature residents. Take a look at our retirement village gallery to see our OAP cats living their best life.
