Hi. My name is Thank You .


After 10 years, Cat Help has closed its doors due to the Trustees running out of puff. Thank you for all your support over the years as we could not have done it without you!!!


Welcome to The Cat Help Charitable Trust official web site. We became a Charitable Trust (CC45805) in December 2010 and have been granted donor status so all donations to Cat Help are eligible for a portion to be claimed back through the IRD.

Our Mission

The Cat Help Charitable Trust is made up of a small group of volunteers committed to the welfare of unwanted, stray, abandoned and feral cats and kittens in Christchurch, New Zealand, and surrounding areas. We were granted Charitable Trust status on the 2nd December 2010.

Funding is through donations, rehoming fees and our own fundraising which goes towards meeting vet bills and food. Our fundraising includes holding garage sales and having a stall at the Brighton Market. We always welcome donations of items for the above and we are happy to collect items from you.

Cats and kittens awaiting homes are fostered by volunteers, but we do not have a sanctuary. If you are interested in viewing any of our cats or kittens, or if you would like to make a donation to meet the costs of looking after these cats, please contact us - we would love to hear from you.

Our Aims

To trap, treat and rehome (where possible) feral/abandoned cats/kittens.
Find loving and responsible homes for rescued cats and kittens.
Promote de-sexing and microchipping. Our adult cats are de-sexed, microchipped and vaccinated before homing.
Educate cat owners and the general public.
Provide humane euthanizing of cats/kittens when necessary, in consultation with vets.
