Hands Free Homing - How to Adopt a Cat
Adopting a cat from us
Adult Cats £85
We have been undertaking a Hands Free/virtual matching adoption process since summer 2020, so that we could continue to rehome cats in our care. This has been very sucessful for us during restrictions and though restrictions are now lifted we will continue to re-home using this process. However, we can now offer an appointment to come in and meet your cat after the virtual matching has been done.
Our centre will remain closed to the public for the foreseeable future, this will enable us to protect our staff and volunteers so they can give the cats the care they need on a daily basis. We are unable to offer general appointments to meet cats at this stage without prior matching via our website.
Our virtual matching consists of advertising our cats on our websites with the addition of a video for each cat. This will allow our adopters to get a better idea of the cat’s personality. Adopt with Confidence, our usual policy of openness and honesty still stands – we’ll ensure you’re aware of any medical or behavioural concerns, and we will carefully assess each and every match before deciding whether the home is suitable.
Enquire If you are interested in offering a cat a permanent home and like the look of one of our cats, send us an enquiry through the website. We have a range of cats and kittens in our care with differing needs, our staff will be happy to tell you all about the cats, so that the one you choose will be right for you and your home.
Reserve If we think you’re a match, we’ll give you a call or email you to discuss the cat. At this stage we will ask for proof of your address and landlord consent (if applicable). Once this has been received we can reserve the cat for you and we’ll arrange for an Adoption appointment call where you’ll be provided with full information about the cat. An appointment can be arranged for your to come in and meet your cat prior to adoption. Alternatively we can offer you a virtual visit via Whats app or to adopt using our hands free adoption process, meeting and getting to know your cat once you have taken them home.
Adopt Once the reservation has been placed, we’ll send you the cat’s paperwork via email for you to review and sign. We will be able to finalise the Adoption once this paperwork is received and the Adoption fee has been paid. The paperwork consists of a Medical Summary, Adoption Form, and PetPlan Terms for your free one month of insurance cover. During your Adoption appointment we will talk through this paperwork and discuss settling your new friend into their home. Arrangements will be made for you to pay the adoption fee by card payment over the phone. There will also be options to purchase supplies, join our membership scheme or make a donation. We are unable to take any other method of payment at this time.
Support We will arrange times to catch up with you to see how your cat is getting on in their new home and provide any advice you may need. This starts from the day the cat is delivered and we will check in with you at 7 and 21 days from their arrival. At the end of the 21 days we will no longer contact you for updates, but our help doesn’t end there. We’re only ever a phone call away, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch for any advice you might need! You may also like to consider signing up to our membership scheme which will to help towards the running of our self funding branch, and we may ask if you would be willing to participate in homing success stories articles.
