Adopt a cat

HANDS-FREE HOMING

We're using 
a hands-free (minimal contact) homing approach during the Covid-19 pandemic. We follow  procedures to enable carefully controlled rehoming without putting people at undue risk of infection and without a negative effect on cat welfare. We can't guarantee that you'll be able to adopt a cat at this time but we'll be ensuring that all our cats are matched with potential owners who can provide the environment and lifestyle required by each individual cat. You'll find descriptions, photos and (where available) video clips of the cats in their profiles to help you decide which one might be for you. 

ENQUIRE
If you like the look of one of our cats send us an enquiry via 
the contact form on the cat's profile page or give us a call on 0345 371 2739, mailbox option 2. If we think you're a match we'll call to take a few more details. At this stage we'll ask for proof of your address and (if applicable) landlord permission for a cat. Once these have been received we'll arrange a WhatsApp or FaceTime call to carry out a 'virtual' home visit, where we'll go through important information about settling in a cat and cat care, and you'll be able to show us around your home and garden. You'll be able to talk with the cat's fosterer prior to reserving him or her, and hear about their dietary and litter preferences, along with any other information we can give. If all is well we'll reserve the cat for you and proceed to the adoption. 

ADOPT 
Once your cat has been reserved we send the adoption paperwork via email for you to review and sign. We'll be able to finalise the adoption once this paperwork has been returned and when the adoption fee has been paid. (The cat carrier we supply will be brand new and of good quality. It's an essential part of the hands-free homing approach to minimise infection risk). The paperwork consists of an adoption form and PetPlan Terms for your cat's free one-month insurance cover. Instructions will be given for payment of the adoption fee online. 

Once this has been done the fosterer will contact you re collecting your cat. This will be done following Covid-19 guidelines and precautions. The fosterer will explain how it works when they call to arrange a day and time. 

SUPPORT
After the adoption we follow up with you to see how your cat is settling in. We'll check in with you at 3, 7 and 28 days from arrival. However, we're only a phone call or email away, so you can always get in touch for any advice or help you might need. 


FIND YOUR CAT
Please scroll down to see the cats that we have in care -  there are sometimes more cats behind the scenes who haven't made it to the website yet. If you don't see the cat for you do ask as we may have a new arrival who fits the bill perfectly! If you spot a cat you're interested in please mention their name when giving us a call on 0345 371 2739 option 2,
or by emailing us at homing@eastsurrey.cats.org.uk
