Our objective is simple, to help cats in need.
Chats du Quercy is unique in France. To our knowledge there is no other Rescue Centre dedicated solely to abandoned cats in FRANCE and managed by a qualified cat behaviourist and trained employees. In 2015 our dedicated cat Rescue Centre helped 364 cats and kittens.

It takes a lot more than good intentions to run any animal rescue centre correctly.
It needs compassion, commitment, objectivity, experience and skills in:-
• Plus the determination and ability to initiate community action.
It is also true that it costs money.
As soon as a cat is taken into the care of Chats du Quercy Cat Rescue and Rehoming Centre, there are associated costs, including: food, medicine and veterinary fees.
On average, each cat in our care costs 300€.
Running Chats du Quercy costs 7000€ per month.
There are many people who work very hard to ensure our doors stay open. It is a full-time job to do fund-raising alone, not counting the hours put into the actual animal care. Understandably, people want to be certain their money is put to good use.
