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 Our webhost is working on this but for the next few days some of our pages contain outdated information.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Homes pages are unaffected but home page, news, vet clinic and jobs pages are  not displaying or are showing very outdated information.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.  

Featured here are some of the animals in our care who really deserve a new, loving home.
The majority of our animals that are suitable for domestic homes are featured here - we also have many feral cats seeking mainly rural outdoor homes.

As an animal charity with a non-destruction policy our rescue centre is almost always full to capacity so we often do have exactly the cats or kittens that people may be seeking. However some of our cats and kittens do require adopters to be a little more 'openminded' or 'rescue minded' and to consider giving our 'harder to home' or even just our less popular colour cats and kittens a chance!  

More information about giving a home to one or more of our cats can be found on our Homing FAQ's page:  http://www.celiahammond.org/index.php/faqs/homing-a-cat

 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

Foster homes:  We do use short term foster homes but our main need is during kitten season for mother cats and litters of kittens (March to late Autumn) For other adult cats these will usually be our harder to home more challenging cats. Due to the demand to adopt friendly cats we do not need foster homes for friendly 'easy to home' cats. We do need foster homes to be local to our Lewisham centre. We have received a lot of offers of help with fostering cats during the pandemic but currently only have a very limited number of cats that are suitable for fostering. 

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.

The cats at our centres are being cared for by our staff. Unfortunately we cannot take on new volunteers at the moment.  If you wish to support us in the care of our cats please do so by sending donations of cat food via our Amazon Wish List : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/NH7XY66SFO89/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o
