Coronavirus Covid-19 situation and cat adoptions
We always carry out a pre-adoption home assessment. In normal times this would take place at your home but currently due to the coronavirus situation we are temporarily carrying out video visits. 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.
Adopters who have had a successful home assessment to meet suitable cats prior to adoption - this will be by appointment only and Covid safe measures will be in place. Matching cats to new homes using video clips of staff interacting with cats will still continue to be an option but actual meetings will be helpful particularly with our more challenging temperament cats.
Catchment areas We can rehome within any of our branch catchment areas, so not only East London and much of North London, but also South London, Essex, East Sussex and parts of Kent. IF YOU ARE UNSURE PLEASE CONTACT US!
PLEASE SUPPORT BY GETTING INVOLVED You can support our cats in other ways by checking the GET INVOLVED section of this website to contribute in ways such as sending donations of cat food via our AMAZON WISH LIST
