Adopt via our Direct Homing Scheme
The direct rehoming scheme is continuing its success into 2022 - helping cat-owners, cat carers, cat finders to rehome needy cats directly to new forever homes
Where we, as a local branch, are not able to take in a cat that needs a new home, we recommend cat owners do their best to find a new home for their cat by asking friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues if they would like to adopt, or call reputable rescues for help, or call the CP Adoption Centre where there may be a place available - 01564 822020.
Here, we try to help via our Direct Homing Scheme. To use the scheme, clear good quality photographs of the cat need to be provided by e-mail, along with a full description of the cat - age, whether friendly, and neuter/vaccination/ microchip status along with full contact details.
This is referred to as a 'private adoption' as it is up to the potential adopter to liaise directly with the current carer to decide if the cat is suited to its possible new home. Equally, it is up to the current carer to decide whether the potential adopter will provide a good home, properly care for the cat, and keep the cat indoors in its new home for at least six weeks. The current carer continues to look after the cat until an adoption takes place.
We feature the cat on our website and give brief details as provided by the current owner, but we make no claim to accurate knowledge of the cat, its health, vaccination status, whether it is neutered, micro-chipped, etc.
**Please note CP would expect ALL cats offered for adoption/rehoming to be neutered. So please ensure this is the case and, if on a low income or certain benefits, the '£5 to neuter your cat' scheme can be used. Call 03000121212 for details of participating vets in your area**
Cats featured will stay on the site until we hear/establish that they have been rehomed or other arrangements made. Those who use this 'direct' scheme need to let us know as soon as their cat has been rehomed so that the details can be removed from the website - otherwise they may well continue to receive unwanted calls.
There are no adoption fees for this - the Direct Homing Scheme - but either party may want to make a donation to the branch which is much appreciated.
