Adopt a cat

Cats Protection, Preston Branch

Please consider adopting an adult cat, as until we have homed the cats in our care, we don't have room to bring in pregnant or nursing mother cats. Adopting an adult cat at this time of year could free up a pen and help us save the lives of half a dozen kittens. If you are considering adopting two kittens, why not consider adopting a male kitten and his mother? The mother cats in our care are usually young cats, barely more than kittens themselves.

Our cats and kittens are with volunteer fosterers, at their own homes, and we do not have a central shelter. You can view all the cats available for homing on this website, then contact us to make arrangements to meet the cat or cats that you are interested in.

If you would like to adopt a cat or cats from us, you can email us at or ring us (9 - 5, Mon - Fri, 9 - 3 Sat) on 01772 393949. We are looking for kind, permanent, responsible homes for kittens and cats that may have already lost one or more homes. Cats in our care have been neutered, microchipped, and blood tested for FeLV and FIV. We have also started their vaccination program, and would expect the new owner to continue it. All the cats come with four weeks free PetPlan insurance. We charge a minimum £50 adoption fee for our cats, in recognition of our costs, but of course we welcome any donation that you can make above that amount. We carry out home visits for all cats homed by us. Our kittens are homed on condition that they are neutered by the new owner.

Our hope is that every cat that we rescue and rehome lives out the rest of their years in a home where they will be loved and treasured.
