About The Charity

Stopford Cat Rescue is a registered charity operating in and around south Manchester (UK) and is run entirely by volunteers.
Our charity has three simple and clear objectives to help cats in the area:

  • Homing - Finding good homes for stray and unwanted cats
  • Neutering - Encouraging the neutering of cats
  • Information - Improving the public's understanding of cats
More details are in our leaflet which can be found here ...  Stopford Cats Flyer

We operate from our volunteer's homes and gardens so don't have a "rehoming centre" as such - this keeps our overheads to a minimum whilst giving maximum operational flexibility.

Our Address

Stopford Cat Rescue's postal address is 51 Avondale Avenue, Hazel Grove, Stockport, SK7 4QE. Please note, this is a correspondence address only - our foster cats are distributed amongst our volunteers in the local area.

We officially registered with the Charity Commission (England and Wales) on 17th May, 2018 and allocated Charity Number 1178415
