Welcome to Cats Protection York Adoption Centre

The charity’s vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Our objectives are:

Homing - Finding good homes for cats in need

Information - Improving people’s understanding of cats and their care

We’re passionate about improving the lives of cats and kittens in York, working to find loving new homes for local cats in our care, offering support with neutering, and lost and found cats, as well as general education and awareness within the York area.

Cat adoption in York

York Cats Protection Adoption Centre's Homing process operates on an appointment based system, seven days a week.

  • Please contact the Centre through the CONTACT US form or via the listing on the cat’s profile on our Adopt a Cat page. As well as completing all fields in the form please provide additional details in the comments box, including information about any other pets, children, working arrangements etc.
  • We will then phone you and go through our Homefinder Questionnaire to help us match you with the most suitable cats we have in our care. Please note the cat you enquire about might not be the most suitable match for you, but once we've gone through the HFQ we're confident we can find you the perfect companion.
  • Once we have come up with suitable matched cat candidates for you we will make an appointment with you to visit the Centre.
  • During your appointment the staff at the Centre will introduce the cats we have matched to you. If you then think this is the cat for you we can reserve them for you and we can continue along your adoption journey.
  • Once you have reserved a cat we need some time to prepare them for the next chapter in their new lives, and you will need some time to get your home ready for their arrival. Before you go we will go through everything you need to know about settling your cat into their new home, things like diet, litter tray arrangements, medical history, any particular feline behaviours they may display etc. We will then make an appointment for you to come and collect your cat within the next 7 days.
  • Our Adoption Fees are currently £95 for an adult cat (7 months old and above) and £115 for a kitten (up to 6 months old, includes neutering).

If you wish to register your interest in adopting a cat please use the CONTACT US form and we will get in touch with you to discuss the cats we have in care that may be suitable matches for you.

Visitors to the Centre will be unable to meet any cats until they have completed a Homefinder Questionnaire with one of our Team. This is to be completed before you visit the Centre.

For cat adoptions the Centre is open by appointment seven days a week between 11am & 3pm.

We are happy to answer any enquiries about cat welfare, rehoming or neutering.

If you are contacting us about taking in a cat please be aware that the Centre operates a waiting list for cats coming into our care.

The Adoption Centre does not have a veterinary surgeon on site and we are unable to deal with medical emergencies. In such cases you need to contact a local vet.
