Hector's House Cat Rescue

Hector's House Cat Rescue

We are a local cat rescue in Devon, UK working predominantly with stray cats who, through no fault of their own, cannot easily be housed. Because of this, most other charities cannot give these cats the help that they so desperately need. That's where we come in.

Hector's House is formed of volunteers who have experience working with cat rescues but have a passion for the strays. In Devon especially, there are some great local charities who do amazing work to help all animals who need it. Unfortunately, because of the huge demand for these charities, strays can sometimes fall through the gap.

Our aim is to help where no one else can!

Rescue outreach

Through several years of training and experience our team of volunteers respond day and night to calls from the public concerning the welfare of cats. We often spend hours patiently working to rescue the strays. We are based in Torbay but rescue cats in and around Devon.

Veterinary Care

Each cat that comes to us requires veterinary care. We ensure all cats receive a health check, neuter and further treatment if necessary at local veterinary practices. This is all funded through charitable donations.


Unfortunately, many cats who have spent some time straying may need a bit of time to adjust to being looked after.

We have volunteers who spend time with the cats, gradually building the cats' trust. It is always amazing how quickly they come out of their shells and are able to enjoy life again.

Equipment and Facilities

We have managed to fund the build of 9 cat pens. These pens are perfect for the unneutered boys, as they are in their own space with food, shelter and warmth.

For rescuing the strays, an essential piece of equipment is the cat trap. These are specially designed and built to ensure the safe and successful rescue of stray cats.

As well as these most essential pieces of equipment, the charity relies on maintaining a suitable quantity of cat carriers, towels, blankets, toys and food.


When our cats are rehabilitated, happy and healthy, we search to find their forever homes. This is the most rewarding part of the work we do. Working with scared, unhappy and hungry cats until they are themselves once again is priceless.
