New Gildersome Homing Centre, Leeds opened in October 2013
We are part of Cats Protection, the UK's leading feline welfare charity.
Gildersome is the charity's new pilot centre, run on dedicated volunteer assistance. Unlike the 29 Adoption Centres, Gildersome does not have the facilities to take stray and unwanted cats/kittens directly into the centre. Instead, we rely upon a band of faithful fosterers to get cats "fit for homing", so that they can then come into the centre and find their new forever homes.
Our goals -
- Plans to rehome 500 cats per year
- Increase rehoming in the area by 68%
- Information and advice on cat welfare and ownership to the local community
- Promotion of our education programme giving fun talks about pet ownership
We have 12 cat pens where we can house up to 24 cats ready to find their loving new homes.
All cats at the centre are vaccinated, neutered (age dependant) and socialised and can be seen by their new owners in an easy to reach, visible and modern environment.
