Stray Cat Rescue Organization

Enriching lives, one cat at a time.

Whisker Rescue Society of Alberta ( is a volunteer run, non-profit charitable organization (851423426RR0001). 

 Please understand we are a small society with NO SHELTER, simply run by a few cat-lovers!  

We are a no-kill organization relying on volunteers & foster families to give every cat that enters our adoption program the time, patience, love & cuddles they need until their forever homes can be found. We provide basic needs such as shelter, food, medical attention & adoption opportunities to stray, homeless & surrendered cats in our care. 

Each cat is vet checked, tested for Feline Leukemia, vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed or neutered, & tattooed or micro-chipped. We have several programs with variable adoption fees such as "Seniors for Seniors, Positive Pals, Special Needs & Barn Buddies".  We are proud to offer a Lifetime Return Policy, no questions asked, with a full refund within one month of the date of adoption!

Although we do not have a shelter, we are fortunate to work in cooperation with several Red Deer facilities (as well as Edmonton, Olds & Calgary), which have generously donated time & space to help us adopt our lucky felines into loving homes. Please contact us for locations where our cats can be cuddled & adopted. Also check out the links (to the right) for several clinics that help us out. We are sincerely grateful to these local participating vet hospitals that generously support our charity.  In addition, we are very fortunate & thankful for our amazing & successful partnerships with Olds College & Alberta Animal Services.  Our warmest gratitude for their support & wonderful friendship which has directly helped us in countless ways.  Together, we save hundreds of lives!  

Please understand, we are a small society run by just a few cat lovers.  We will do our best to assist those who need to surrender their cats, print out surrender form, but currently have a waiting list for the less urgent situations. 

What We Do

Some examples of what the Whisker Rescue Society has given to felines in need:

  • Financial assistance to families (when funds are available) to assist in spaying or neutering their own cats to help control stray populations.

  • A warm kennel and cuddles from our volunteers and vet staff.

  • Time spent nurturing and bottle-nursing kittens without mothers.

  • Food and supplies such as litter, litter boxes, blankets and toys for foster homes.

  • Medication for cats and kittens suffering from diseases and infections (i.e.. Upper Respiratory)
