Heart & Soul Rescue

About us

At Heart and Soul Rescue we focus on rescuing abandoned and neglected cats, and those that are living on the streets. Through our network of supportive veterinarians, volunteer foster carers and volunteers, we rehabilitate, socialise and adopt those cats to their loving forever homes.

Founded in March 2017 and based in Melbourne, Heart and Soul Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation incorporated in the state of Victoria, Australia. The founder has a strong belief that no cat should lead a life of daily struggle when they can have a loving home. With a foundation of a ‘no kill’ philosophy, our belief is, there is a home for every cat. There aren’t any defects or flaws with our cats, some just have more life experiences than others – if only they could talk, you would hear their amazing stories!

We are a non-government subsidised organisation which is 100% dependant on generous donations and the dedication and care of our volunteers and supporters.
