Adopt a cat

A guide to our new hands-free homing process

We’re keen to help as many cats as possible, both during the current crisis and beyond. Offering our cats a home will help to free up more space to take in emergency cases.

We have put in extensive procedures to make sure that our homing process is in line with current government guidance, without putting adoptors, our cats or our volunteers at risk.

All of our cats available for homing will be added to our website and will be posted on our social media pages.

Home visits will be virtual via google maps and even pics of your location would be great also.

Just as before, if interested in adopting please contact us and we will be happy to talk to you via phone or virtually where we will guide you through our Hands Free Homing process including filling out a friendly form.

Our adoption fee is £75 and this will include a new carrier 
Cat will be neutered (if a kitten, a neutering voucher is included)
Vaccinated
Microchipped
Flea and worm treated
4 weeks free Pet Plan insurance
All necessary veterinary treatment will be given to ensure your new cat or kitten is fit and healthy before adoption.

We’re here to support you not only through the adoption process but as a new cat owner.   You’ll receive a follow-up call or email around three, seven and 14 days after the adoption to check that your cat is settling in well.  You’ll also find plenty of advice on our website at www.cats.org.uk/advice

 
Here is our guide to adopting a cat using hands-free homing:

  • Check you are within a reasonable distance of your chosen branch.  You can find your nearest branch by typing in your postcode at www.cats.org.uk/find-us

  • Enquire.  If you’ve found a cat on our website that you’re interested in homing, send an enquiry either through using our form or contact us directly through our Facebook page or email enquiries@armagh.cats.org.uk

  • Reserve your cat.  If you’re found to be a match for your chosen cat, you’ll be contacted via phone or email.  You may be asked for proof of your address and the consent of your landlord (if you live in a rented property)

  • Adopt.  Once you have reserved your cat, you’ll be sent paperwork to sign and you’ll make a further telephone appointment with our team.  In this call, you’ll have a chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat.  You’ll then pay an adoption fee of £65, usually by bank transfer

  • Bringing your cat home.  Once this is finalised, we’ll arrange for a driver to bring your cat safely to your home 

  • Be supported.  You’ll receive a follow-up call or email around three, seven and 21 days after the adoption to check that your new arrival is settled in.
