Cat Rescue

Thank you for caring for a sick or injured cat.

We are a small cattery located in Singapore - and because of our size and lack of manpower, we aren't able to locate, trap and rehabilitate animals on our own.

Instead, we rely on a network of cat caregivers and cat lovers - and most importantly, you - to give the cat the help that it needs.

To paraphrase Star Wars: you're the cat's only hope.

Love Kuching Project focuses on three types of cat rescue:

  1. We rescue kittens that are sick, abandoned or orphaned who require neo-natal care - i.e. kittens that are less then three months old. Kittens that are older that are not socialised will have less priority - this is because it becomes really difficult to train kittens to be good house pets once they are past the socialisation stage.
  2. We also rescue sick or injured community cats. Community cats that require veterinary attention and fostering before they get well can be fostered by us until they recover, after which they will most likely be released back where they came from.
  3. We also foster community cats that require palliative care in cases where their illness is not curable.

We will have to reject cats that don't fit the criteria above; but as far as we can, our team will assist you with information as to how to seek help for the community cat.

Each cat is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and cats we assess that have a more severe condition will be given priority.

Here are some things you might want to take note of:

  1. Do you know feeders in the area? Check if there is a water or food bowl around. If you can, leave a note for the feeder to contact you.
  2. If you are submitting a request to help a cat you saw online, do ask the person who posted about the cat to make a request first. Sometimes, they may have already made a request to us.
  3. If you're unable to get the cat into a carrier, you may want to engage a trapping and transport vendor. You can reach transport vendors listed on the Cat Welfare Society website:

Submit a rescue request

If you can foster but can't pay for veterinary fees – we can activate our Emergency Rescue Fund. Find out more on applying to the Emergency Rescue Fund and its terms and conditions below.

Emergency Rescue Fund

Our Emergency Rescue Fund (ERF) was set up to help cat caregivers and rescuers who don't have the money to pay for vet care for a sick or injured community cat.

Through the generous support of our donors, we have funds already there for someone who needs help. This way, rescuers need not go into huge debts, owe vets money, or skip essential veterinary procedures because of costs. The cat will then receive the care it needs at the clinic from the very beginning.

How the ERF works

To prevent any misuse of the funds, we have placed a few terms and conditions required to apply for the ER Fund:

Terms and Conditions

  1. Love Kuching Project reserves the right to terminate a relationship with a rescuer.
  2. All veterinary consultations have to be made at The Animal Clinic Telok Kurau, 55 Lorong L Telok Kurau, #01-63 Bright Centre, Singapore 425500, or the Cat Clinic, 109 Clementi Street 11, #01-17/19, Singapore 120109, during operating hours.
  3. No off hour consultations are allowed.
  4. When the Love Kuching Project Emergency Rescue Fund is at or below $500, cases will be triaged (i.e. when immediate intervention will make a life/death difference to the cat rescued).
  5. The ER Fund can only be applied once per cat. Subsequent visits to the vet for the same cat will not be funded by the ER Fund except when the cat is reviewed for the same condition for the second time.
  6. Love Kuching Project reserves the right to terminate funding for a cat's subsequent visits to the vet for the same condition.
  7. Each rescuer who utilises the ER Fund or the Foster Network must register as a rescuer under our database.
  8. All cats must have a foster caregiver before we can initiate the rescue process.
  9. A Love Kuching Project representative must be present during the cat's veterinary consultation.
  10. A Love Kuching Project representative must be present when Love Kuching Project administers the Emergency Rescue Fund.
  11. Love Kuching Project will be the sole decision maker allowing or declining any veterinary procedure, under advisement of the vets at The Animal Clinic or the Cat Clinic.
