Adopt a cat

Thank you for your interest in homing a cat from the Welwyn Hatfield District Branch of Cats Protection. Unfortunately, due to a branch vacancy for a volunteer Homing Officer, we are not currently in a position to take any cats into care and find new homes for them. Any that we rescue for the time being will be fostered by one of our neighbouring branches or adoption centres and will be homed by them. Please see the below for your closest branch:

We do appreciate your interest in adopting from Welwyn Hatfield District and do hope that you manage to find your forever friend from one of the above charities. If not, do keep an eye on our website where we will let everyone know when we are back up and running again.
 

Before leaving our care, all of our cats and kittens will have been checked thoroughly by a vet  for any health issues, given flea and worm treatments, blood tested for FIV/FeLV (feline aids and leukaemia virus), vaccinated, micro-chipped and, if old enough, neutered.

Our adoption fee is £85 per cat/kitten.  We do not make any profit from the re-homing our cats/kittens, as our fee rarely covers the costs of these treatments/procedures and food and litter whilst they are in our care.

Please ask your vets how much they would charge you for an initial course of vaccinations, flea and worm treatment and micro-chipping your cat. Add in the cost of neutering and you soon realise what a great deal adopting from us can be!

If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that would, of course, be gratefully received.   We are able to reclaim Gift Aid if you are a UK tax payer.  This means that we can reclaim from the government a whopping 25p for every £1 donated at no cost to you!  We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to re-home a CP cat. 


Where a kitten is re-homed and is too young to be neutered, we offer advice and assistance to get them neutered at the appropriate time and follow up to ensure this has gone smoothly.

It is our policy to carry out a home check prior to adoption of a cat or kitten. While Covid-19 remains a risk, this will be carried out via phone and possibly video call and may require you to share or send pictures of the inside of the home where the cat would live..

Click on the link below for details of some of the cats and kittens currently looking for new homes. We often have other cats available whose photos and details have not been added to the web page yet so please get in touch for more information on these.

Do take a look at our Amazon Wishlist (Cats Protection Welwyn Hatfield District http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/7WBBCNQHZUQG/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o?, if you would like to support us with providing some of the items necessary for the cats and kittens in our care!

 

There are currently no cats available here.
