Adopting a cat
Our homing centre is in Market Weighton and is open to the public between 11am – 5pm, Tuesday – Sunday. No appointment is necessary. Here you can meet all our adorable cats and kittens looking for new loving homes. When you arrive one of our volunteer homers will greet you and ask questions to find out about you, your family situation and what sort of cat you are looking for. This is a two-way process so do ask as many questions as you need.
What is most important is matching the cat’s personality with your family and your lifestyle. Getting these factors right makes for the happiest and most successful animal adoptions in the long-term. Please also take the time to read our adoption process which may answer many of your questions before you arrive. You can preview adult cats for adoption in our online gallery.
We always need new and enthusiastic volunteers so thank you for your interest. Please read our pages on Getting involved to find out about the different ways you can support us and use our Volunteer application forms. Alternatively you can call the homing centre on 01430 872612, or just drop in for a chat during opening hours, between 11am – 5pm, Tuesday – Sunday, and pick up an application form.
Please read our donations page for information on how you can donate online, by cheque or by setting up a standing order. For a more personal way to give, why not consider sponsoring a long-term foster cat or one of our homing centre pens. Thank you for your generous support.
