Oldham Cats is a UK registered charity dedicated to rescuing and re-homing stray, abandoned and unwanted cats & kittens. We have been helping cats in and around the Oldham, Rochdale & Middleton areas of Greater Manchester, England since 1995 and gained our charity registration in October of the following year. Since 1998 we have been based at our rescue in Middleton.

Our registered charity number is 1058621 and our patron is the keyboarding legend Rick Wakeman.

We really need Your Help!

We find homes for hundreds of homeless and abandoned cats and kittens every year, and we need your help to continue to do so.  Making a donation no matter how small will help provide much-needed funds towards food, medicines and veterinary care.  Click Here to go to our donation page. It tells you about all the ways you can support us or donate via PayPal by clicking the orange ‘Donate’ button below.



We are a non-profit, totally volunteer run organisation and rely entirely on the support of our loyal volunteers, fundraisers and supporters. We often get asked why we put so much work into rescuing and looking after cats and the only answer is… Because We Care. Our dedicated team work 7 days a week, 365 days a year ensuring the cats and kittens in our care are getting the best possible attention.

Please take time to read about our work on this website and feel free to contact us if you have any further questions. Don’t forget to check out the new Oldham Cats Blog for up to the minute information on our cats for adoption, success stories, fundraising activities, and news and updates straight from the cattery.

Looking for a cat or kitten to adopt?

See our Adoption page for adult cats that we currently have available for adoption. Please note, the cats and kittens in our rescue can change daily and although we try to keep this site as up-to-date as possible, we cannot guarantee a cat you see here on the website will still be available – please contact us for up-to-date information. Also, don’t forget to see our How to Adopt page for details on our adoption policy.

We don’t usually advertise the kittens we have available for adoption so the best thing to do if you’re looking to adopt a kitten is to come along to the rescue during our opening hours and see who we have.  It’s best to telephone us in advance of your visit to find out what kittens we currently have ready for adoption.  Please note, kittens cannot be reserved for collection at a later date.   Adult cats can be reserved.
