Hands Free Homing
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are using a hands-free homing approach to rehome our cats.
Now lockdown restrictions are gradually lifting, we are now able to rehome cats to the mainland.
However, the new owner will have to collect from our adoption centre in Ryde, IOW
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 take a look here 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 cats profile page.
Adopt with Confidence. Our friendly staff at the Isle of Wight Adoption Centre will help you choose a cat that is best suited to you, your lifestyle and your home. When you give a home to a cat or kitten from us, you can be assured that it has been vet checked, neutered (if it is old enough), vaccinated, microchipped, and treated for fleas and worms.
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.Enquire
If you are interested in offering a cat a permanent home and like the look of one of our cats, send us an enquiry through the website. To view cats available for adoption clich here: Adopt a Cat
. We have a range of cats in our care with differing needs, our staff will be happy to tell you all about the cats, so we can match right cat for you and your home.Reserve
If we think you’re a match, we’ll give you a call or email you to discuss the cat. At this stage we will ask for proof of your address and landlord consent (if applicable). Once this has been received we can reserve the cat for you and we’ll arrange for an Adoption appointment call where you’ll be provided with full information about the cat.
Once the reservation has been placed, we’ll send you the cat’s paperwork via email for you to review and sign. We will be able to finalise the Adoption once this paperwork is received and the Adoption fee has been paid.
The paperwork consists of a Medical Summary, Adoption Form, and PetPlan Terms for your free one month of insurance cover. During your Adoption appointment we will talk through this paperwork and discuss settling your new friend into their home.
Arrangements will be made for you to pay the adoption fee by card payment over the phone. Our Adoption Fee is £65 per Adult cat and £75 per Kitten.
There will also be options to purchase supplies, join our membership scheme
and make a donation. We are unable to take any other method of payment at this time. Once this is complete, we’ll arrange for an adoption day. We will arrange to deliver your adopted friend to your home.Support
We will arrange times to catch up with you to see how your cat is getting on in their new home and provide any advice you may need. This starts from the day the cat is delivered and we will check in with you at 21 days from their arrival.
At the end of the 21 days we will no longer contact you for updates, but our help doesn’t end there. We’re only ever a phone call away, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch for any advice you might need! You may also like to consider signing up to our Membership scheme
which gives you access to the VetfoneTM line, and we may ask if you would be willing to participate in homing success stories articles.
