Adopt a cat

A guide to our 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 - we cover all TF postcodes. 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 through using the  form below the cat, our by emailing adoption@telford.cats.org.uk

  • 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)

  • Adopt. Once you have reserved your cat, you’ll be sent paperwork to sign and you’ll make a further telephone appointment with our team. In this call, you’ll have a chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat. You’ll then pay an adoption fee of £65, 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 or email around three, seven and 21 days after the adoption to check that your new arrival is settled in. You can also find help and advice on the Cats Protection website at www.cats.org.uk/advice

Our cats are always neutered, microchipped and vaccinated prior to rehoming. They also come with four weeks free insurance.
 
If you feel able to make a donation on top of the adoption fee that would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to rehome a CP cat.
 
Our branch is entirely run by volunteers and all proceeds go to the welfare of our cats. 
 
We conduct a virtual homing visit prior to adoption to ensure we find the right cat for you. For more information on this, see our Having a Homing Visit leaflet.
 
We sometimes have other cats that are not yet advertised below, so please contact us if you have specific requirements.

Please also check out our national Cats Protection website for cats available at neighbouring branches.
