About us

Founded in October 2019 as an initiative under the Cat Society of Bahrain and Pet Animals (with registration number CR 137/G/T.A.KH), Rescat is a dedicated feline welfare organization based in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Rescat is focused on three primary objectives: providing support to rescuers dealing with the rehabilitation of injured stray cats and securing loving homes for neglected and mistreated cats, promoting the well-being of cats through educational programs and public awareness, and managing the local feral cat population through its Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) initiatives.

Operating purely on the generosity of donors and the success of its fundraising efforts, Rescat is unique in that it does not maintain a physical shelter. Instead, it relies on a network of foster homes to provide temporary care for the rescued cats. All cats rehomed through Rescat are fostered for long enough periods of time in order for a perfect match to be made between the cat and the adopter.

Rescat’s commitment to cat welfare transcends borders, with its governance team and community of supporters, adopters, and volunteers extending internationally.

In its inaugural year, Rescat has achieved remarkable success, having rehabilitated and found new, permanent homes for over 80 cats. Remarkably, a significant 90% of these cats have been adopted by families in international destinations such as the United Kingdom, France, and the Netherlands, testament to Rescat’s far-reaching impact and dedication to the cause of cat rescue and adoption.

Rescat’s crucial work is made possible through the unwavering support of its fosters and donors, who form the backbone of the organization. The charity is always actively seeking new individuals to join their vital network, extending an open invitation to those who wish to contribute in these two indispensable areas. Whether by providing a temporary loving home as a foster or by offering financial support as a donor, every contribution plays a significant role in enabling Rescat to continue its mission of saving and enhancing the lives of cats in need.
