The feline team have responded to thousands of calls for help of colonies of cats, sick, abandoned, injured and starving felines in the community.
Our very small team provides ongoing support to felines. struggling families, and neighborhoods with everything from education and advice to food and vet care.
The success of rehabilitation among cats requires a thorough understanding of feline behavior, coupled with excellent maneuvering skills.
All Felines that come into RRR including some TNR cases require health checks. Multiple ailments are usually discovered on intake from ringworm to abscesses and malnourishment.
All care is taken to rehabilitate the cat/kitten within a foster environment. Once recovered and healthy, they are moved on to our adoption programme.
Supported by our team of volunteers our felines are shown as much love and care as possible in their foster homes. They are desexed, vaccinated and chipped and where possible, socialised with other cats, animals and children in varied environments.
“Animals are the victims but people can be the solution.”
By inspiring and mobilising people, we are able to create collective impact that brings about change.
This is why community engagement is one of RRRs Core Values giving back to our community is a huge part of who we are
- Raising Awareness
- Engaging Volunteers
- Proactive Outreach

How We Determine Eligibility
Eligibility is based on two key factors:
- Targeted Post Codes: We track the areas in which the rescue has had the most canine intakes.
- Low Income Areas: We want to provide this service for individuals and families who truly cannot afford it.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Scientific studies show that TNR improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time.
TNR is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities. It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a partner veterinarian to be neutered. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home/colony. Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people are brought into care to be rehabilitated and rehomed.
Grounded in science, TNR stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction although highly controversial RRR monitor all TNR cases carried out to ensure felines are not returned to highly sensitive areas such as native bush. It is a fact that the removal and killing of outdoor cats that animal control has been pursuing for decades is never ending and futile. Since feral cats are not adoptable most trap and euthanise. With a successful programme like TNR to turn to, it’s hard to believe that animal control agencies continue to kill cats, even though that approach has shown zero results.
TNR provides a lifesaving, effective solution for these beautiful, independent cats.
There are so many reasons to embrace and promote TNR! Trap-Neuter-Return:
- Stabilizes feral cat colonies
- Improves cats’ lives
- Answers the needs of the community
- Protects cats’ lives
