Marilyn, our Sanctuary cat. Very sadly missed, PTS January 2020 aged 17 years.
PLEASE SEE OUR "CORONAVIRUS UPDATE " PAGE - changes from 1st June 2020. Open by appointment only for rehoming, please contact us first on our Facebook page, Colchester Cat Rescue, or phone 01206 864284, or email us on mail@colchestercatrescue.org.uk 

We were formed in 1974 by Sheila Parsonson MBE, and became a Registered Charity in 1978, covering Colchester and the surrounding area for over 40 years now.


We are an independent rescue, not connected with any other charity. We receive no government funding or grants, and are entirely dependent on our own fundraising, with the help of our Charity Shop in Colchester town centre.

All our cats are neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped to us. Our vets' bills are a major cost - we never put a healthy cat to sleep, and if we cannot rehome a cat then they live with us for life.

We have a chalet block for cats needing rehoming, and a maternity wing with 4 chalets for expectant mums and kittens. We also have 2 large cat runs for our permanent furry residents, and for cats who need more space.
