Adoption Process

Home visit:

The first step is an informal home visit to get to know potential adopters. Anyone in rented accommodation will need to obtain written permission to have a cat in the property.

We recommend home visits are carried out even if we do not have a suitable cat or kitten for you immediately available at that time. When cats do become available we will give priority to those who have already had a home visit and when a suitable match is made.

We will always try our best to ensure that we have the right match for you, your family and the cat who is searching for their forever home. Sometimes it can take a little time for us to make that match, so please do bear with us.

Visiting the cats:

Once you have passed your home visit we can make arrangements for you to visit any cats that are thought to be the most suitable match for you and your family.

All our cats are cared for by our network of foster carers- we will put you in touch with the foster carer to arrange a convenient time to visit.

If the visit goes well both for yourself and your new feline friend, you can put  down a non-refundable deposit. This works as a holding fee so that the cat or kitten will no longer be available to anyone else for adoption.

 Adoption Donation & what’s included:

The minimum adoption fee for a cat or kitten is £95. All our cats are microchipped, vaccinated and (if old enough) spayed/neutered prior to adoption.

The minimum adoption donation is MUCH lower than you would pay at your local vets for microchipping, neutering and vaccinations.

If kittens go to new homes prior to being old enough for neutering , arrangements will be made with you and our vet for you to return your kitten for neutering, once old enough.

No details are registered against the microchip until the adoption is complete. Once the adoption is complete, it is the responsibility of the adopter to register their personal details with the microchip company. This can be done online or by post, using the details we give you on adoption.

To start the adoption process please get in touch!

Please provide us with your full address, phone number and an idea of your availability and we will be in touch as soon as possible to arrange a home visit.
