Welcome to Cats Protection Glasgow Adoption Centre!

Due to lockdown restrictions surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) we are now closed to the public until further notice.  
However we are trialling a new hands-free homing approach for some of our cats.


This is to ensure that we can continue to help as many cats as possible at this time by matching them with their perfect family and freeing up more space in our centres.

If you’re interested in adopting a cat from us please visit https://www.cats.org.uk/glasgowac/adopt-a-cat If you think you could be the #PurrfectMatch for one of these lovely moggies, please fill out a contact form located on your chosen cat's profile page.


Please note: We have in place extensive procedures that are enabling carefully controlled rehoming without putting people at risk of infection, and without a negative impact on cat welfare. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to adopt a cat at this time, but we will be ensuring that all our cats are matched with potential owners who are able to provide the environment and lifestyle required by each cat’s individual needs.

Our history-

Glasgow Adoption Centre is situated in what was formerly Cardyke Farm. In 1993, Cats Protection transformed it into a large adoption centre for cats, cat owners and concerned parties in need in the Glasgow area.

In between Robroyston and the village of Auchinloch, the site is the perfect combination of a rural, picturesque setting and easily accessible from the M80 motorway. Directions to the Adoption Centre.

The Centre

We are capable of housing up to 220 cats, in seperate and fully cleanable indoor pens with access to more private runs. Since opening, we have rescued and rehomed thousands of cats, been a source of advice to cat owners and concerned parties in our area and engaged with the local community in all things feline. Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity- a responsibility we take seriously by encouraging responsible and knowledgeable cat ownership in the cat owners of the future. Learn more about what we do.

As a charity, our work is dependent on the generosity and kindness of public support. This enables us to provide for the cats in our care, now and in the future. The work never stops, and we are grateful for the support we receive here.
