A guide to our hands-Free homing process
We are 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 spaces to take in emergency cases.
We have put in extensive procedures to make sure that our homing process is inline with current government guidance, without putting adopters or our volunteers at risk

Here is our guide to adopting a cat using hands-free homing.

*Check you are within a reasonable distance of your chosen branch.
You can find your nearest branch by typing in your postcode at

*Enquire. If you have found a cat on our website that you are interested in homing, send an enquiry
by email
or on the adoptions phone number  07718424778

*Reserve your cat. If you are found to be a match for your chosen cat, you will be contacted by phone or email.
You may be asked for proof of your address and the consent of your landlord (if you live in a rental property)

*Adopt. Once you have reserved your cat, you will be sent paperwork to sign and you will make a further telephone appointment with our team.In this call you will have the chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat. You will then pay an adoption fee of £75, usually by bank transfer.

*Bringing your cat home. Once this is finalised , we will arrange for a driver to bring your cat safely to your home.

*Be supported.You will receive a follow-up call or email around three, seven and twenty one 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
