Cat Adoption Process


STEP 1: Visit the shelter

Visit the shelter and see all of the cats available for adoption. They are also on our website which is updated on a regular basis. We are open 7 days a week from 11am – 4.30pm and no appointment is necessary.


STEP 2: Talk to an adoption consultant

If you think that there is a suitable cat for you and your family, please speak to one of the adoption consultants and we can introduce you to your potential new family pet.


STEP 3: Filling in your application form

After you speak to an adoption consultant and have met your potential new family pet, you will then be asked to complete a Cat Adoption Application Form.


STEP 4: Adoption

We will make an appointment with you to adopt.  Adoption Seminars take place on TUESDAY at 2pm, WEDNESDAY at 3:30pm and FRIDAY at 2pm. We cannot accommodate adoptions outside of these times because we are busy finding homes for the other wonderful animals in our care!
