FURBABIES CAT RESCUE 

Furbabies Cat Rescue operates from the Birmingham area and rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes cats. Furbabies uses a network of foster homes to assess the cats and accurately match their personalities and needs to potential adopters. Rehoming criteria applies and home checks are completed for every cat in our care to ensure we secure quality homes.
