Adopt a cat
ADOPTING A CAT FROM BRACKNELL & WOKINGHAM DISTRICTS CATS PROTECTION
Before any cat in our care is rehomed it has been examined by a veterinary surgeon, been vaccinated against flu and enteritis, treated against fleas, roundworm and tapeworm and any sick cats have been blood tested for FIV and FeLV.
Your cat will also have been neutered and microchipped and we will transfer the details on the chip over to you after adoption. If you adopt kittens that haven't been neutered before homing we will provide a full cost neutering voucher for you to use at one of our Branch vets for when they are old enough.
Cats Protection asks adopters for a fee when rehoming a cat. If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to rehome a CP cat! On average, each cat can cost the branch more than £250 before it is ready for rehoming.

HANDS FREE REHOMING
Our homing process has changed in line with Government and DEFRA guidelines.
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 adoptees or our volunteers at risk.
Here is our guide to adopting a cat using hands-free homing
Reserve your cat. If you’re found to be a match for your chosen cat, you’ll be contacted via phone or email by our Homing Volunteer. You will be given the opportunity to speak with the cats fosterer direct for any more information you would like to know for your new cat - i.e likes/dislikes of food. You maybe asked for proof of your address and the consent of your landlord to keep a cat (if you live in a rented property)
Bringing your cat home. Once the paperwork has all been finalised, we’ll arrange for a volunteer driver to bring your cat safely to your home. They will be brought to you in a carrier that we will have to leave with you on the day. We will be able to leave their vaccination card with you but no other paperwork can be exchanged. If you would like to keep the carrier we would appreciate a small donation for it. If you do not wish to keep the carrier, we will aim to return to pick it up after 72 hours. Social distancing measures as per Government guidelines, will need to be observed.
So please take a look below at the cats we currently have available for rehoming from our branch.
