Our adoption process - how it works

Our adoption process is very straightforward and we aim to home our cats as quickly as possible.

Once you have seen a cat you would like to adopt, or you have a general idea of the type of cat you would like, please contact our Homing Coordinator on 01747 854 630, the helpline, or email us via the website.

When you contact us you will be asked to give your details and information about your home environment. Our Homing Coordinator will discuss the suitability of the cats in our care with you. If you decide to adopt from us we will arrange a convenient time to carry out a home visit.

Once the home visit has been carried out, we will arrange for you to visit the cat you are interested in as soon as you would like and, if you are happy and you have everything in place for your new cat, you may take the cat or kitten home with you.

Please be aware that occasionally we may have more than one enquiry about the same cat, in this situation we will make a decision based on the best interests of the cat.

Home from Home Adoption

Some of the cats shown on our website are being advertised for rehoming by their owners and although they may be on our waiting list, they are NOT in our care.  If you are interested in adopting a Home from Home cat, please let us know so that we can put you in touch with the owners.

DISCLAIMER: The cats featured as Home from Home are being advertised on behalf of their owners. Cats Protection have not seen these cats and cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information provided. Arrangements to adopt a Home to Home cat will be made directly with the owners, but Cats Protection can offer a discounted veterinary health check after adoption if requested.
