What We Do

Cats Protection is the largest feline welfare charity in the UK, and nationwide we rehome around 60,000 cats and kittens every year, as well as promoting responsible cat ownership. 
We are a small but busy adoption centre located in Archway, North London.  Our team take in cats from the local area, carry out any necessary medical treatments, and then match them to new homes.

Unfortunately we are currently receiving an extremely high volume of admissions enquiries and as a result we have had to close our waiting list. As we operate on a one-in-one-out basis we are unable to take cats without an appointment being agreed in advance.  If you turn up without an appointment you will be turned away.  

We are currently offering a fully hands-free adoption process for prospective owners who would like to adopt with confidence from the comfort of their own home. As well as this, in-person viewing appointments are available.

As well as adoptions, we also take in cats in need of rehoming from the surrounding area.  We carry out any necessary veterinary treatments before finding new homes for them.  If you are considering rehoming your cat, please give us a call on 020 7272 6048 to discuss this further.  Our team can provide all sorts of advice on cat care and behaviour, although we regret that we can't offer veterinary advice or treatments for owned cats.  

We also run a small shop from our centre.  As well as selling all the basics brand new, we sell a wide range of pre-loved items at bargain prices.  All second hand items are fully cleaned using the same animal-safe disinfectant that we use in our cattery.  Our pre-loved stock is ever changing but usually includes items such as carriers, cat trees, scratching posts, beds, bowls, litter trays and toys.  

You can get the latest updates on all that's going on at the North London Adoption Centre, by checking out our Facebook page, and our Twitter and Instagram feeds. You can see the cats and kittens, plus we have interesting facts about the benefits of cat ownership, tips on caring for them, and plenty of cute cat photos. Please follow us and come and say hello!
