Cats Needing Homes UK and Ireland


Donations to Cat Chat CharityAll donations help more Cats out of Shelters... into Homes of their own. Thank you.

Cat Chat is a UK Registered Charity (No. 1100649). Your donation enables us to help cat rescue centres and rehoming groups across the UK & Ireland to find loving homes for cats in their care. All our services to rescue organisations are free. We also help thousands of people (and their cats) every year by providing rescue & rehoming advice.

We receive no government funding, and rely on the generosity of supporters. Could you help?

IMPORTANT: To donate to a specific shelter, please donate to them directly, not to Cat Chat. Thank you!
