Cat adoption in Basildon, Brentwood & District

 

If you are interested in adopting please phone our Catline 01268 285778 where your details will be taken by our Messaging Service and passed on to the Branch to call you back or use the Adopt a Cat contact button on the cats details to contact us.

(Please do not message us on facebook as this will delay your application)

STAGE 1:Our Homing Officer will take further details and will go through our Homing procedure more thoroughly, discuss with you payment of our Adoption Fee of £70  for cats (7 months and over) and £90  for kittens, and put you in touch with the fosterer of the cat or kittens that you are interested in.

STAGE 2: The fosterer will be able to discuss in more detail the cat they have personally been looking after with you.  Most of our prehome visits are now 'virtual' where we ask for photos of your property by email or Whats App and visits to see our cats are now available. We ask that you send photos of the room where you will keep the cat in the first few days and your garden , if applicable. The fosterer will also be able to advise what food and litter the cat prefers and reserve the cat for a maximum of 5 days.

STAGE 3: Once you have adopted your new  cat/kitten, the fosterer will phone you after 3 days to check that the cat has settled in and diary for more calls.  You will also be able to contact the branch by phone to our Catline or email adoption@basildon.cats.org.uk if you have any worries or concerns. 


Due to the high amount of adoption enquiries we are getting for our cats, we will place a reserve on the cat once 4 enquiries have been  received for that cat, to allow us to process those enquiries. To enable our volunteers to apply their time to the benefit of the cats, we will only be able to return calls to the most suitable enquiries, so please do not be offended if we don't call you back.

Volunteer at Cats Protection Basildon, Brentwood & District Branch

We always need additional volunteers to help us locally and there are a number of things which you could do to help us:

Fostering

This involves looking after a rescued cat or kitten(s) until the branch can find him/her a new loving home. You must have a spare room (as we do not allow foster cats to mix with other cats) or no cats of your own, a telephone and transport (essential for visits to the vet etc). Some of our more experienced fosterers have purpose built, heated pens in their gardens.

Fostering is very enjoyable and rewarding but can also have a sad side too as a lot of the cats we take in are strays and inevitably some of them can be unwell or very sick. Very occasionally a foster cat will have to be put to sleep, on veterinary advice. We will support you all the way in this volunteer role.

Interested? Then give us a call on 01268 285 778 to find out more.
