Who We Are
Whiskers Pet Rescue is a no-kill cat rescue organization in Southbury, Connecticut. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity made up entirely of volunteers committed to helping and caring for cats and kittens who have been abandoned, injured, abused, or neglected. We're a hard-working group of people with a huge passion for helping our whiskered friends. We rescue and adopt out hundreds of cats and kittens each year, placing them in loving forever homes.
We are constantly rescuing new cats/kittens in need and we won’t rest until each and every one of them has found their forever family.
We are currently open by appointment only for pre-approved adopters, except for Thursdays, which are open to the public without an appointment. Please fill out the adoption application online. We look forward to meeting you and helping you find your whiskered forever friend!
