What is
Katkinz Happy
Pawz Rescue?

Set up in April 2024, Katkinz Happy Pawz Rescue is dedicated to the safe and humane Rescue, Rehabilitation and Rehoming of stray, abandoned and unwanted cats in Gloucestershire.

We believe that all cats deserve the best chance at a life in a suitable home or environment suited to their individual needs. 
We are run solely by a dedicated team of volunteers and continuously hold events to fund the operation of Katkinz. We are a not for profit organisation. We rely on our fantastic facebook and website members who donate to the rescue to keep us operating and feed the fur babies in our care.

I am Angela, my son adopted a cat from Katkinz and I haven’t looked back since. I do a lot behind the scenes helping Jane with vet runs, planning and preparing for events, I thought retirement was going to be a time to relax but there’s never a dull moment with my Katkinz family and kitties.
