New Hands-free Homing Process
We’re keen to help as many cats as possible, both during the current crisis and beyond. Offering our cats a home will help to free up more space to take in emergency cases. We have put in extensive procedures to make sure that our homing process is in line with current government guidance, without putting adoptees or our volunteers at risk.
Here is our guide to adopting a cat using hands-free homing:
- Check you are within a reasonable distance of our branch. You can find your nearest branch by typing in your postcode at www.cats.org.uk/find-us
- Enquire. If you’ve found a cat on our website that you’re interested in homing, send an enquiry using our online form, or telephone our Branch number 0345 260 1383.
- Reserve your cat. If you’re found to be a match for your chosen cat, you’ll be contacted via phone or email. You may be asked for proof of your address and the consent of your landlord (if you live in a rented property). In this call, you’ll have a chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat.
- Adopt. Once you've reserved your cat, you’ll be sent adoption paperwork to sign and pay an adoption fee of £50 for a single cat or kitten or £90 for a pair, usually by bank transfer.
- Bringing your cat home. Once this is finalised, we’ll arrange for a driver to bring your cat safely to your home.
- Be supported. You’ll receive a follow-up call around three, seven and 21 days after the adoption to check that your new arrival is settled in.
All cats/kittens adopted from this Branch have been:
- Blood tested for FIV and FeLV
- Given a health check by a vet with any treatment required & fully vaccinated
- Flea'd and wormed
- Neutered (we pay for the neutering of kittens adopted from the Branch when they are old enough).
Please note we do not rehome cats or kittens to families with very young children or to properties on busy or main roads.
To support our hands free homing system, we urgently need good quality cat carriers. Please see our news story for full details.
