Cats Needing Homes UK and Ireland


Donations to Cat Chat CharityThank You for wanting to help. Your kind donation helps more Cats out of Shelters... into Homes of their own.

Cat Chat is a UK Registered Charity (No. 1100649). We source new, loving homes for rescued cats from shelters and rehoming groups across the UK and Ireland.  All our services to rescue organisations are free. We also help thousands of people (and their cats) every year by providing advice and information about cat rescue, rehoming, welfare, and adoption.

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

Please Note: Donations to Cat Chat enable us to help cat rescue centres and rehoming groups across the UK & Ireland to find loving homes for cats in their care. Privacy note: Cat Chat never shares donor's details with anyone else (except HMRC for Gift Aid purposes). Thank you for your support!

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