Welcome to the Cats Protection National Adoption Centre

We’re here to support cats and kittens in Ashdown Forest, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and the surrounding areas, covering postcodes: BN11-BN18, BN41, BN43, BN45, BN5, BN6, RH1, RH10-RH19, RH2, RH20, and RH3-RH9.

We are the UK's largest cat rehoming centre dedicated to improving the welfare of cats and kittens. We work hard to find loving homes for cats in our care offer support with neutering and encourage general feline education and awareness for cat owners within the Mid Sussex area.

Our centre is open daily (10am–3pm) only for those who have been successfully matched to a cat through our Homefinder Questionnaire or online enquiry. Our onsite café and shop remain closed.

Our homing team is waiting to discuss the most suitable cat for you. Please check Adopt-a-Cat to register interest in a specific cat.

Cat adoption in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and East Grinstead

Could you provide a new home for a cat in Haywards Heath, East Grinstead or Crawley? We’re passionate about finding loving, lasting homes for the cats in our care. Cats available for adoption from the National Cat Adoption Centre are featured below. Our adoption fee is £85 for an adult cat or £105 for a kitten.

Anyone keen to adopt from us can register by emailing homing@ncac.cats.org.uk. We will collect your details via our Homefinder questionnaire and come up with ideal moggy matches, before arranging a time for you to come in and meet the cats.

During the adoption process, we’ll consider your potential pet’s personality and how this fits with your lifestyle, as well as your home environment, to create the perfect match for you and the cat to start a wonderful feline friendship. If you have questions the adoption process, please email us

We always have many cats looking for rural homes and working cats suitable for an outdoor life. To learn more, contact workingcats@ncac.cats.org.uk.

Maybe you could make a difference to cats in our care with our Sponsored Pen scheme, too.
