Direct homing



Not all the cats featured on our website are in our care. As a small branch without a shelter we can place only a limited number of cats with our fosterers. This means we always have a waiting list. But our branch actively assists anyone needing to rehome their cat through our direct-homing service when we act as the go-between for people needing a new home for their cat.

How does it work?

The cat's owner continues to look after the cat until an adoption takes place. We feature the cat's profile on our website and social media channels, providing as much information as we can from what we are given. We make no claim to first-hand knowledge of these cats including their health, vaccination status, suitability for a particular home or whether they are neutered. All rehoming arrangements are between the current and prospective owners including transporting cats to or from owners.    

Will it cost me anything?

Normal donation fees do not apply with these cats but if either the existing or new owner wish to give us a donation in the event of a successful adoption, we would be very grateful.

Do be aware that if you adopt a direct-homing cat and things do not work out we are unable to bring the cat into our care and can only offer you the service outlined here. Please ensure your choice of cat is right for you before committing to adoption, as it is up to the potential adopter to liaise directly with the current owner when deciding if a cat will be suited to its prospective new home.
