Adopt a cat

Sadly due to distance we can't currently rehome to Southern Ireland. 

Are you considering adopting a cat or kitten from the Coleraine Branch?

Our adoption fee is £65 per cat/kitten.  This includes:

  • Vet-check

  • Neutering / Spaying (or if too young a free voucher)

  • Microchip

  • Flea and Worm Treatment

  • At least one vaccination (we cover the cost of 2nd if our vets are used).

  • Cat Carrier (for Hands Free Rehoming) - this is for new owner to keep as we can't lend out carriers at this time.

This is excellent value for money, not to mention the ongoing heating, feeding, and veterinary treatment costs that we cover whilst a cat or kitten is in our care.

A guide to our new hands-free homing process

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

· Check you are within a reasonable distance, as our volunteers have to bring the cat to you.

· Enquire. If you’ve found a cat on our website that you’re interested in homing, send an enquiry through using the form by clicking 'Contact us about this cat'.

· Reserve your cat. If you’re found to be a match for your chosen cat, you’ll be contacted via phone or email. You may be asked for proof of your address and the consent of your landlord (if you live in a rented property). We'll discuss this adoption process in more detail first and if you are happy with the process, we'll arrange for you to speak to the fosterer so you’ll have a chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat. 

· Adopt. Once you have reserved your cat, you’ll be sent paperwork to sign and you’ll pay an adoption fee of £50 (£65 if you would like to keep a new carrier), by bank transfer.

· Bringing your cat home. Once this is finalised, we’ll arrange for a driver to bring your cat safely to your home.

· Be supported. You’ll receive a follow-up call or email around three, seven and 21 days after the adoption to check that your new arrival is settled in. You can also find help and advice on the Cats Protection website at
