Adopt

DUE TO COVID-19 THE RESCUE IS CLOSED TO ALL ADOPTION AND NEW INTAKES

Interested in adopting?

We have plenty of cats and kittens in our care who are sat waiting for their forever home to come along. From our kittens to our more senior cats, we’ve got plenty who’d love to say hello to you.

If you would like to enquire about any of our cats or to ask about kittens (not all kittens are listed on the page, so please do get in touch) then please fill out our adoption enquiry form and someone will be in touch with you to arrange a visit.

If you would like to visit the rescue to meet our cats you are more than welcome to do so, please do get in touch first so we can arrange for someone to greet you and show you around.

 

MEET OUR RESIDENTS

BOOTS AND SOCKS

Hi, I’m Boots and this is Socks next to me. We are two very handsome boys, if we do say so ourselves! We are about 2 years old (we think!) and we are the best of friends so we really must be homed together. We are a bit shy untilwe get to know you and are struggling with rescue life, but we are slowly getting used to it and we let some of the more regular volunteers give us fusses now. We really love our fusses with people we know. We can be indoor or outdoor cats, we don’t mind. We need a really special home with people who are kind enough to help us come out of our shells. Could you be the special person we are looking for?

 

ROBYN

Hi there! I’m newcomer Robyn. I was found sleeping on a pile of leaves under an abandoned car. I was very very cold & a bit poorly, but Pawprints rescued me and are making me all better. I’m a lovely middle aged kitty. I’m a bit feisty and a bit of a girl boss! I like to do things on my own terms. I will need an experienced home who can handle my feisty side. Could you give a nice warm home to a princess like me?

 

IZZY

Hi everyone, I’m Izzy. I came to Pawprints after my owners didn’t want me anymore. I’m 5 years old and a little scared at the moment. I’ve only just arrived at Pawprints so I’m still getting to know everyone here but my neighbour Amber tells me they are going to find me a forever home! Sounds good to me. If you’d like to come visit me please fill in the adoption enquiry form at the bottom of the page.

 

HARRY AND CHESTER

Hi, we are Harry and Chester. We are bonded brothers and we were re-homed by Pawprints 3 years ago. Sadly our owner passed away suddenly and we ended up back here. We are about 4 years old and we are very sweet and gentle boys. We can be a little shy with new people (can’t be too careful these days!) but once we know you we are big softies. We would love a nice garden and to play out too in our new home. Could you give us another chance?

MADISON

Hi there! I’m Madison I’m a lovely princess who likes fusses & strokes. I’m 8 years old & I came here after my owner fell ill & could no longer take care of me. I’d lived there my whole life but now I am looking for my second chance. I’m such a super sweet girl who’s quickly won over the volunteers here (naturally). I came in with my housemate Poppy below & we could go together if you wanted 2 of us. She’s super sweet too!

POPPY

Hiya! I’m Poppy. I came here to the rescue after my owner fell ill & could no longer care for me. I’m a lovely sweet girl. I came here with Madison & although I’m not quite the show off she is I am lovely & friendly. I’m 9 years old & I’m looking for my second chance. I could go with Madison if you wanted a pair.

 

BETSY


Hello there I’m Betsy! I arrived here after my owner moved & couldn’t take me with her so I’m looking for another chance with a furrever home.
Now to my list of requests… I would like access to a nice garden, no roads nearby, you need to have been trained by another cat in the past to accept that cats rule & I’m the boss and no other pets please like I said I’m the boss! If you can give me that I will be your BFF for life.

KITTENS

 

UPDATE: We currently have NO kittens in.
We are a rescue that mainly focuses on adult cats and usually only have one lot of kittens in at a time. However, sometimes we do have kittens looking for homes which will be stated on this page. We only home kittens once they’ve reached the age of 12 weeks and we never home a kitten under the age of 8 weeks as it goes against the animal welfare act, kittens are far too young to be away from their mother at such an age. When adopting a kitten from Pawprints you enter into an agreement that the kitten will be neutered/spayed when it is old enough (usually around 4-6 months or when it has reached 2kg) and we will be informed by our vets when this has taken place.

 

Adoption Process

We are unable to home cats to anyone living on or very near to a main road or railway line, this is for their own safety. All cats are home checked (not as scary as it sounds we promise!). We appreciate that not everyone likes the idea of a home check, however, we are responsible for the welfare of the cats in our care and it would be irresponsible of us to let them go without knowing where they are going. We are not there to judge you or your decor! We are there simply to check that everything is OK, that you don’t live on a main road and that you know everything you need to know to get your cat settled in.

We will ask for your address initially so we can look up your home to make sure it is in a suitable location. If we believe it to be unsuitable, we will contact you to let you know. All final decisions are made by the rescue owner. A home check will be performed when we drop off the cat you would like to adopt to you, if everything is OK we will ask you to fill out an adoption form that signs the cat over to you. Up until this point we do have the right not to hand the cat over to you, however this only happens in very exceptional circumstances when we believe there is a risk to the cat/kitten and is very rare.

Adoption Fees

All cats adopted from Pawprints Cat Rescue come with 5 weeks free insurance from Agria Pet Insurance and have been health checked by a vet, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have received treatment for fleas, ticks and worms. The adoption fee is to cover part of the cost. This basic care alone will cost us upwards of £150 and that’s before we add in costs of food, litter and any additional vet care. We ask for an adoption fee of £65 for adult cats and £80 for kittens, which is just a fraction of what we have paid out. This enables us to carry on our work of rescuing unwanted and abandoned cats.
