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 homes. Single cats, pairs or trios 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 will they will be loved, respected and have a new chance in life.
We always carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit that takes place in your home. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens - including 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 and balconies safe. Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats at our rescue center or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s).

You can only choose or reserve cats at one of our Open Days once you have had a successful home visit. We will, of course, try and accommodate your wishes as much as possible but always with the best interest of the animals in our care at heart.
We would be grateful for a small donation when you visit to help treat our sick and injured cats.
The Canning Town Branch of the Celia Hammond Animal Trust opened in 1999 with the objective being the provision of a low cost neuter and vaccination clinic, thus bringing responsible pet ownership within the reach of cat and dog owners in East London.
The centre is now both a busy veterinary clinic providing low cost neutering and veterinary services for pets belonging to owners on benefits or a low income and a busy cat rescue and homing centre for unwanted, abandoned, stray and feral cats.
