Welcome to Downham Market Cats Protection


We welcome you dropping into Downham Market Adoption Centre to purchase products, leave donations or seek advice, but visits to our cats are appointment only. If you are interested in any of the cats available for adoption from us, please enquire via their listing or call us on: 01366 382311. 
Please note from January 2022 the AC will be closed every Tuesday, during this time we are unable to check emails or voicemails.

We know the Government have changed their rules on this, however to help keep our staff, volunteers, you and our cats safe we would ask that when you attend site you please wear a mask.


In 2021 at Downham Market Adoption Centre we helped over 500 cats and kittens in a variety of ways, in & around Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, South Lincolnshire & Suffolk. Cats come to us for a variety of reasons – some are well-loved pets who have sadly lost their owners, others are strays who have no home, others are unfortunately unwanted.

When they leave Cats Protection, your cat will have been treated to a top to tail medical. Meaning they will have been:

  • Fully examined by a vet
  • Vaccinated at least once against flu, enteritis & feline leukaemia
  • Treated against fleas, roundworm & tapeworm
  • Neutered (including kittens)
  • Microchipped
  • Come with 4 weeks free insurance with PetPlan
With this in mind our adoption fee is currently £80.00 per cat or kitten, your new feline friend also comes with 4 weeks free pet insurance for extra peace of mind.

Office/Telephone Times: Open by appointment only for cat viewing, office & telephone hours are 9.30am-4pm. CLOSED TUESDAYS Open bank holidays. We are closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Year's Day.
