Due to recent events we are now closed to the public until further notice, no adoptions, admissions or viewings will be taking place.  Our switchboard will still be taking calls but you might have a longer than usual wait to get answered.  Please leave a message and we will return your call when we can.  We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment.

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.
