Adopt a cat

** New adoption procedures are in place that include a Home Visit via Video Call.  Adoption paperwork and proof of address is completed via email.  Once everything has been completed and a cat matched with adopter; the Adoption Fee is paid in advance via a bank transfer to the branch.  It is not currently possible to meet the cats in care, but videos will be provided, and follow-up calls after adoption will be made to make sure you and your new furry friend are happy and settled ** Please read about our Hands-free-Homing

Our Facebook page and YouTube Channel have photos, videos and more cat information too.

All cats taken into the care of Cats Protection are vet checked to ensure they are healthy, neutered (if they are old enough), microchipped, worm/flea treatment carried-out, at least the first part of their vaccination done (2nd vaccination included in adoption fee - £85), and assessed for personality before being considered for rehoming.

We evaluate your needs too and try to ensure that we find you your perfect partner.  After all, we hope you'll be together for a very long time!

** Please note: All potential adopters require a Video Call Home Visit first.  Please organise this with us even though you haven't seen a cat that matches you yet.  This means that you have everything in place should a cat come into care and can be instantly matched to your circumstances. **  Apply via our 'Contact Us' form if there are no cats currently listed for adoption that match your circumstances: Contact-us

We understand things happen in life and personal circumstances change. These situations mean you find yourself making the very difficult decision to rehome your cat.  To help us find the best possible home and perfect match for your puss cat's needs, please provide us with as much information about your cat's personality, behaviour and health at the outset.  This speeds-up the rehoming process for your cat and reduces the stress for them being held in care longer than is necessary.  Having lots of cute pictures and videos of your cat in your home setting looking relaxed, as well as a short story describing them for a potential new family also enables the rehoming process to move along quickly.

Cats Protection asks for an adoption fee (£85) when you adopt a cat.  If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that covers more of the veterinary costs, food and care costs, that would of course, be very gratefully received.  Thank you for your decision to rehome a Cats Protection cat.
