Rescue Organisations around the Wellington Region


Outpawed is a NZ registered charity dedicated to the care and management of stray and feral cats in the Wellington region and the lower North Island, including Horowhenua/Manawatu. . They provide shelter for wild cats/kittens and aim to desex, socialise, vaccinate, microchip and find homes for as many of these cats as possible. They are also involved in TNR for cats that cannot be integrated into a household environment. Where TNR is necessary, cats are released into managed colonies where they are fed and monitored.

Wairarapa Community Kitties

We are a group dedicated to humanely reducing the uncontrolled breeding of un-owned and abandoned felines in the towns from Featherstone through to Eketahuna of the Wairarapa region by practising humane trapping and where possible FIV Testing, desexing and vaccinating all the cats and kittens that are able to be socialized and then adopted out. In the case, of an adult cat being unsocialized, and if the property owner is willing to become a person in charge for this animal, we use Trap-Neuter-Return. This improves the life of the cats by removing unwanted pregnancies for the Queens and unneccessary fighting and spread of disease for the Toms.
As there is a diverse amount of wildlife throughout our beautiful region, we are also strongly working to find a balance for cat owners and the native wildlife and, by reducing the breeding and un-owned animals, we are beginning to achieve this.

Cat Protection League

The mission of Cat Protection League is to take in displaced or unwanted cats and rehome them where possible (via a waiting list unless special circumstances exist). The cats need to be able to be handled for the best possible results for both people & cats. They also aim to inform the public on the care of cats and kittens and to encourage the desexing of all cats not required for breeding
