Rehoming and adopting

To go directly to animals available for rehoming now - click here.

Rehoming is a vital part of the work we do in our Branch area.  We accept cats and kittens from the RSPCA Inspectorate and members of the public who elect to sign their pets over to us.

These pets then join one of our fosterers who care for them in their own home or they are taken into our local privately run cattery where they are cared for until we can find them suitable new homes.

This branch covers the cost of vaccinations and, if necessary, neutering and microchipping.  For kittens too young to be neutered, microchipped or vaccinated, we provide these procedures once they are old enough and this is included in the adoption fee.  Anyone wishing to adopt a kitten must be prepared to have them neutered as soon as they are old enough.

Owning a pet should always be a rewarding experience and choosing one should be exciting and enjoyable.  However, before making such a decision we encourage potential adopters to think carefully about taking on such a commitment that will usually last for many years.   Every animal deserves a good home and a happy life and we aim to secure the right home for every pet that we rehome.

Our Rehoming Manager, Geraldine Pearse, (left) will be delighted to answer any questions you may have when considering adopting a cat or kitten.

If you have never owned a cat before or it has been a long while since you last did, then we recommend you visit the RSPCA’s main website for some useful information on owning and caring for a cat:  http://www.rspca.org.uk/allaboutanimals/pets/cats


How to adopt a cat from our branch

  • Contact the branch by telephoning our Rehoming Manager, Geraldine Pearse on 07880 547502 or email rehoming@rspcahantsandsurreyborder.org.uk .  To save time you can download and complete an application form by clicking here.  (You must download and save as a Word file first before completing the form, then save with your surname as the filename). This can be filled in and emailed back to the email address above.

  • We will give you information on adopting a cat, including the cost and advise you of the cats we currently have in our care.  Whilst every effort is made to keep this website updated with cats available for adoption, there can be a delay so it is always worth contacting us (as above) for the latest details.

  • Following a chat to discuss and match you with the right pet, you can meet the cats and reserve the one you like.

  • A home visit will then be arranged within a few days to ensure your home is suitable for the pet you have chosen and to offer any further advice you may need.

  • When all the paperwork and procedures are complete you can take your new pet home. We do our best to ensure the whole process happens quickly and efficiently.

  • A follow-up visit is usually carried out after about 6 to 8 weeks, to make sure that you, your family and your new pet are happy.
