Welcome to the
National Cat Adoption Centre
- The UK's largest cat rehoming centre

As the UK's largest cat rehoming centre, we know about cats and what it takes to ensure the ideal pet for any family.

If you are looking to home a cat, we can help you choose one that is best suited to your home. 

Visitors to our centre in Chelwood Gate can meet our feline residents waiting for their forever homes and talk to our dedicated staff about cats in our care.

We also have an enjoyable nature trail, snacks and drinks in our welcoming café and a gift shop stuffed with all things cat.

The Centre is open daily from 10am-4pm, with last adoption viewings at 3:30pm.

We welcoming other ways to help us care for cats, too, such as financial support or donations of food, toys or bedding.

Why not consider booking our venue for conferences, talks or cat-themed kids parties? Just ask about what we can do.

Cats and staff at the NCAC thank you for your support.
