Kitty Shelter is a "no-kill" cat and kitten rescue group, rescuing abandoned, abused & injured animals in Gauteng.

Welcome to Puppy & Kitty Shelter /


We are a non-profit, welfare organization and do not receive any Government funding. Merien Smidt recognised an on-going need for an animal welfare organisation that focused on the health of the animals. Merien’s primary aim is to provide a healthy, safe and stress-free environment to aid the rehabilitation of the animals, as well as a beautiful and happy space, for animals and human visitors alike. We have 30 - 40 adults and 30 kittens at any one time, these are just some of them. If there is a kitten or cat below that you like, just remember to call us before coming for a visit and to check availability. See 'Cat Stories' for more cats!
