Welcome to the Cats Protection Tyneside Adoption Centre Website



During lockdown, we introduced hands-free homing, which has been successful in finding many of our cats and kittens brilliant new owners. We’re continuing to rehome each of our cats virtually, however in situations where it is not possible to conduct Hands Free Homing, we are able to invite those visitors to the centre on a carefully controlled basis by appointment only, so you have the opportunity to meet your moggy match in person rather than via video-call. We will be happy to advise those this applies to when we discuss the adoption process.

Our Adoption Centre on Green Lane in Gateshead is the first Cats Protection purpose built rehoming facility in the North East. We have 42 outdoor heated pens, and as part of the leading feline welfare charity, we work tirelessly to provide support in the local area, with the aim of re-homing unwanted, abandoned or stray cats to suitable homes. We hope to help a minimum of 500 cats per year with the help of our dedicated staff, volunteers and supporter network.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

It’s an ambitious vision. However, we truly believe it can be achieved because of our passion, our professional approach and simply because cats are among the UK’s most popular companion pets.

Cats Protection has simple and clear objectives to help cats:

Homing - Finding good homes for cats in need
Neutering - Supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats
Information - Improving people’s understanding of cats and their care.

As part of a non government funded charity, we rely heavily on the kind and generous help from our valued supporters.  There are a variety of different ways you can help, through donating funds or goods, holding fundraising events or voluteering on site. Please click the link below for details of the ways in which you can help our cats today.
