Looking to adopt a kitten? kittens arrive at cat shelters from various places and with varying needs – from those that have been abandoned to those that are born in the care of a cat rescue charity if their mother is a stray.
By adopting and rehoming a cat or kitten you help to avoid the need for these animals to be put-down, which would regrettably be necessary if these rehoming centres become too overfilled.
While kittens can be cute to look at, they need additional care and patience from their owners.
They are likely to be more energetic than older cats too – something worth thinking about before you consider kittens for adoption.
Cat protection and rehoming charities aim to make the cat adoption process as easy as possible. You can find the opening times and address details of each charity and centre online.

Why adopt a cat from a Cat Protection and Rehoming Charity?
Here’s how the adoption process works:
- Once you’ve found a cat, either using our find-a-cat tool or by visiting one of our centres, you’ll need to fill in a homing questionnaire.
- This helps us to ensure that you and your pet are an ideal match.
Kittens for adoption with Cats Protection
Animal rescue centres are dedicated to rescuing, caring for and adopting out homeless dogs and cats into loving and responsible homes. Each year, several thousand animals come into each shelter. These humane societies run life-saving animal shelter and care facilities and deserve your support.
They assist with pet adoption, education, pet behaviour training, spay/neuter, animal cruelty intervention and much more. They believe in and provide services that support the human-animal bond and seek to foster an environment in which people respect all living beings.
What is the Adoption Fee?
Animal Rescue centres have a lot more control over things like adoption fees and operating hours. They also may choose to specialize in a specific type of animal or even breed. For example, there are rescues that save only dogs or cats; some have an even more specific focus on schnauzer or boxer breeds (for dogs), or Bengal or Persian breeds (for cats).
These animal shelters have set fees and hours, among other operating aspects mandated by the government. They also don’t have specializations, except for possibly accepting only household animals, such as dogs and cats. This helps reduce owner abandonment and control the stray population, both of which impact the local community.
They’ll do a quick ‘address check’ online to ensure your cat is right for your home. In some instances, they might even do a home visit.
If you are living in rented accommodation and are unsure whether you are allowed to keep a cat under your lease, you might need a letter from your landlord. You can find out more about how to go about this from the rescue centre staff. You’ll then fill in some paperwork to reserve your cat, pay your adoption fee and arrange a date to collect your new companion.

June is national ‘adopt a cat month’, and this is something we wanted to raise more awareness about as it highlights the importance of animal adoption and why it is so much better than buying from a pet shop.
There are so many animals in shelters waiting for their forever home, and what better time to give one of them your love than now?!

He loves playing with his tennis balls and going for long family walks with all the family. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be able to have this fantastic handsome boy in our lives.”
buzz was 10 months old when we adopted him in July 2014. He had a few issues with confidence, social skills and behaviour at first, but with patience and care over time he is learning and coping well.
