Adopt a Cat

Nationally, Cats Protection rehomes around 60,000 cats and kittens every year. Here in our corner of the world we are always seeking loving new homes for the cats and kittens in our care.

It is our policy not to advertise kittens because it is always easier for us to find new homes for kittens rather than older cats – indeed we usually have a waiting list of people looking for kittens, so please enquire if it is a kitten you are seeking – but please remember, an older cat can be equally rewarding as a member of your family.

We do not set any upper age limit on cats for rehoming, believing that there is always, somewhere out there, the right home for the right cat.

To see the cats in our area (Dumfriesshire) that are currently ready to be homed, click on See More Cats Who Need a Home below. If you think you’ve found the perfect partner and can offer a lifetime of love, please phone Fiona on 01387 710083, or Contact Us. Or go to Facebook page:

'Home Visits' will be done over the phone, cats can only be viewed online, & will be delivered to their new home by CP volunteer. As we have to leave the cat carrier with the cat, our adoption fee has had to increase to £50 to cover the cost of basket & blanket. The adoption fee has to be paid direct into our bank account by BACS. For more information about the homing process, please visit

Not all cats in our care are on the website as some are waiting for vacinations. If you are looking for a feline companion and can't see a suitable one on the website, do give us a call on 01387 710083 to see who we have available for adoption.

If contacting us via email please remember to check your Junk Email folder and voicemails for our responce. Do give us a call on 01387 710 083 if you don't hear anything back in case your message has gone astray.

Some of our cats in care are not currently ready to go up for adoption, but if you are looking to adopt, please do drop us an email via the contact form or give Fiona a call on 01387 710083 to let us know you are interested.
