Adopt a cat
We always have a good selection of cats ready for homing, so whether you are looking for a family pet, a companion, or working out door cats to keep your premises free from mice and rats, we are sure to have a cat/s in our care suitable for you. All our cats and kittens have been
- Vet checked, worm and flea treated
- Vaccinated - first vaccination or fully depending on length of stay with us
- Homed with 4 weeks free Petplan insurance
We recommend that you read the following leaflet Welcome Home as this advises you how to settle a cat into its new environment. There are other leaflets on general cat care that you may find quite interesting via this link and also veterinary guides via this link, these leaflets may help you decide on what type of cat would fit best into your home. Although we have a lot of cats at the Centre they will not always be suitable for every home. We will advise you on which cats would, in our opinion, be suitable.
We invite you to visit us during our opening hours, no appointment necessary (see contact us page for opening times) to meet the cats in our care ready for homing. Please bring with you a clean towel/small blanket to put in the pen with your chosen cat. They can then take this home with them, it will have their familiar smells on it therefore making it easier for them to settle when they go home with you.
You will not be able to take your chosen cat home on the day that you reserve it. You can only reserve a cat once you have spent time with it, we will not let you reserve by phone or email. If you live in rented accommodation we need to see a copy of the pet section of your tennancy agreement, or a letter from your landlord stating how many pets you can have at your home. We ask that as soon as you are thinking about adopting that you request this information and bring it to the Adoption Centre on your initial visit. Please also bring with you a form of ID, which has your name and address on it.
Your cat will need to have a clean carry basket to go home in, this needs to be safe and secure, please ensure that it is lined with a newspaper or blanket.
You can buy all the items for your new cat at the Cats Protection online shop
We are aware that not everybody is able to adopt a cat at this time, particularly if they have just lost their cat. If you would like your cat to be remembered we have a book of memories at the Adoption Centre where you can remember your cat (or other animals). Please feel free to come along to the centre to fill it in, or send us the memory on email and we will write it in for you, the email address is Hereford@cats.org.uk also if you wanted to you could remember your pet while making a donation to the cats in the centre's care by buying an item off the cats' wishlist and putting a note in too
Not all of the cats at the Centre will be on the website, so it is always worth calling in to see the cats that we have available.
We spend in excess of £150 per cat in our care, so Cats Protection asks adopters for a fee of £55.00 per cat/kitten. If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee it would be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to adopt a CP cat!
