Stray Cat Rescue Organization

Enriching lives one cat at a time…….

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

Mailing Address:
Box 27138
Red Deer, AB T4N 6X8

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 and foster families to give every cat that enters our adoption program the time, patience, love and cuddles they need until their forever homes can be found. We provide basic needs such as shelter, food, medical attention and adoption opportunities to stray, homeless and surrendered cats in our care.

Each cat is vet checked, vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed or neutered, and tattooed or micro-chipped. We are proud to offer a Lifetime Return Policy.
We also have variable adoption fees for some programs such as our Seniors for Seniors program.


Although we do not have a shelter, we are fortunate to work in cooperation with several Red Deer facilities, which have generously donated time and space to help us adopt our lucky felines into loving homes. Please contact us at for locations where our cats can be cuddled and adopted. Also check out our Events page for several clinics that help us out. We are sincerely grateful to these local participating vet hospitals that generously support our charity. We are also a proud Royal Canin shelter partner!

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