The Lewisham Branch of the Celia Hammond Animal Trust opened in October 1995 with the main objective being the provision of a low cost neuter and vaccination clinic, thus bringing responsible pet ownership within the reach of everyone. 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.    More information can be found on our Homing FAQ page: http://www.celiahammond.org/index.php/faqs/homing-a-cat 

MAY 21ST 2021:  IMPORTANT NOTICE RE OUR WEBSITE - Unfortunately we are experiencing some technical difficulties with our website which is affecting some of our webpages. Our webhost is working on this but for the next few days some of our pages contain outdated information.   Our Animals Seeking Homes pages are unaffected but home page, news, vet clinic and jobs pages are  not displaying or are showing very outdated information.  We are in the process of changing to a new website and all should be correct again later next week.  

 

CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 SITUATION and cat adoptions. 

UPDATE 11th May 2021:  With the easing of lockdown restrictions we are now beginning to allow adopters who have had a successful home assessment to come and 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. 

Applying to adopt a cat: Please contact us by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  In your email please include your name, address and contact tel no.   If you are interested in specific cats on our website please read their homing requirements and if you think you can meet their needs please include the cats names in your email.  Please let us know some general information about you, your home and household e.g how much experience you have with cats e.g previous and current cats / pets, who lives in your house including ages of any children. If you have a garden etc

Rescue - we are continuing to respond to urgent rescue calls - e.g sick and injured strays, pregnant strays, stray cats with kittens,  cats whose owners have died etc  Please email us This email address is being protected from spambots.
