Lewisham Branch Rescue Centre is open every Saturday and Sunday afternoon between 1p.m and 5p.m .
Our Open Days are an opportunity for you to come and meet us and some of our cats and to discuss offering a home. We have all sorts of cats needing homes from pairs of kittens to elderly cats. Cats needing homes with gardens and cats suitable for indoor only homes. Single cats, pairs or trio's and not forgetting feral and semi-feral cats who are seeking suitable outdoor homes.
Our cats and kittens are rescued and are seeking caring, suitable, permanent new homes where they will be loved, respected and have a new chance in life.
N.B We always carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit which takes place in your home. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens – incl health care, feeding, holiday arrangements, dangers in your home etc. We also look at the location of your home to assess for hazards such as easy access to busy roads or for indoor only homes to advise on making windows or balconies safe.
Our cats have varied temperaments and needs so we also discuss what ‘sort’ of cats would be suitable for you, your family, your lifestyle and your home.
Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats either at our Rescue centre or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s) .
PLEASE NOTE: If you have not had a successful home visit you cannot choose or reserve cats at one of our Open Days.
