AT A TIME
The Independent Cat Rescue rehabilitates and rehomes cats
across Greater Manchester.
We rehabilitate a wide variety of cats and kittens at Independent Cat Rescue and strive to match them with the ideal owners so they can settle in their fur-ever home.
For more information about the cats we currently have available, visit our adoption page.
How do I apply to adopt?
You can apply to adopt by filling in our form here.
Visit our adoption page to find all the information you'll need before deciding to give a cat its fur-ever home.
How much does it cost to adopt a cat from ICR?
We ask for a minimum donation of £100 (or £180 for a pair) to help us to rescue and rehabilitate more cats. As a small, independent charity we rely on the generosity of our donors to keep us running.
What treatments do the cats have at ICR?
All cats in our care are spayed/neutered as standard, have all essential vaccinations including FeLV, are microchipped and will have flea and worming treatments prior to adoption.
Every cat that comes to ICR doesn't leave until it has a full, clean bill of health and all the treatments it needs to live a happy, healthy life in their fur-ever home.
How can I help ICR?
There are many ways that you can help ICR to continue with its lifesaving work including adoption, fostering, donating and volunteering. Read more about how you can get involved here.
ICR was created in 2019 after the founders experienced fostering, trap neuter return and adoption first hand. They wanted to do more to raise awareness about feral and stray cats and how to help them while continuing to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome cats in need.
Many of the cats that ICR takes in are injured or require experienced care that the charity can only provide through generous donations. Unfortunately not every cat can be rescued but ICR is proud to offer a safe, warm home for end of life care.
