Giving up your cat for adoption

We know that there are times in everyone’s lives when things can become difficult, and sometimes circumstances can mean having to make tough decisions that would otherwise have been unthinkable. If you are in the difficult situation where you have to give up a beloved pet for adoption, whether it’s through homelessness, relationship breakup, financial hardship, ill-health or for any other reason, we are here to help.


We offer a completely free and non-judgemental service whereby we will care for your cat in the unfortunate event that you can no longer do so. Every cat in our care is looked after to the highest of welfare standards. Every cat will see our vet for a health-check and will receive whatever veterinary treatment they need. We will care for them until we can find them the best possible, loving new home.

If you need to hand over your cat for adoption, please call us on 01803 812121 or email for a chat about how we can help.

If your cat needs to be rehomed quickly in an emergency, please do not leave them outside our gates. Please do call us on 01803 812121 or email and our team will be happy to help you and to take all your cat’s details. This way we will have all the information we need about your cat, their personality, likes and dislikes and medical history. This information is invaluable to us and will help us to find the best new home for your cat more quickly.

Please note that we are in Devon UK, and due to high demand we can only take in animals from our local area.
