We know that sometimes there's no alternative. At Here for Cats, we offer two different ways of rehoming your cat with us, and we'll always do our best to help.
Please try to give us as much notice as you can as this will ease the process for you and your cat.
We offer two options for rehoming your cat: our direct rehoming service, where find a new home for your cat while they're still living with you, or a fostering service, where we will take the cat into our care while we find it a new home.
Direct Rehoming Service
The cat stays in its current home while we try and find a suitable new home. This gives the opportunity for potential adopters to see the cat in an environment it's comfortable in and ask the existing owner any questions. It also has the benefit of being much easier for the cat.
We use a variety of methods to find new homes including posters in vets and pet shops and features on social media where we have a strong and increasing following.
As well as advertising we vet potential adopters, do home checks and oversee the whole process, ensuring that all documentation such as vaccination certificates and microchip details are transferred.
This service means the original owner has peace of mind meeting the new adopters and can be part of the process in finding the most suitable home. Some adopters even keep in touch with previous owners, sending photos and assurances as to how well their cat is doing in its new home.
