Adopt a cat
HANDS FREE REHOMING - our homing process has changed in line with Government and DEFRA guidelines.
A guide to our new hands-free homing process
We have put in extensive procedures to make sure that our homing process is in line with current government guidance, without putting adoptees or our volunteers at risk.
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.
NB Once we have had several enquiries about a cat it will be marked 'reserved' while we contact prospective adopters. If we have lots of enquiries we may not be able to answer you all - please bear with us in these strange times!
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 £60, by bank transfer if possible.
All of the cats in our care will have been checked by a vet, treated for fleas and worms,and had at least their first vaccinations against flu and leukemia. All cats will also be microchipped, and neutered if they are old enough. All this plus the cost of food and litter can run into three figures by the time they reach their new home - more if they need any veterinary treatment. We ask for an adoption fee of £60 for a cat or kitten - if you wish to make a donation over and above that amount then it will be very gratefully received! Please note we currently prefer bank transfer if possible. Our cats also come with Petplan insurance cover for 4 weeks from the adoption date.
NB. WE DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE ANY KITTENS
