Adopt a Cat

We are now only accepting cats and kittens who have been taken to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital by RSPCA Inspectors or Collection Officers. Many have been ill-treated or severely neglected by their previous owners.

The branch is now sharing private boarding with RSPCA Stockport, East Cheshire and South Derbyshire Branch at Bowler’s Cattery, SK2 5HF and as a result their little cats and kittens are also appearing on this page. PLEASE NOTE: Bowler’s Cattery is now closed to the public to protect staff and visitors alike from Covid-19. They are hoping to be open again once this health emergency is over and it is safe for people to mingle.

TO ARRANGE TO MEET AND ADOPT ANY OF THE CATS OR KITTENS BELOW PLEASE TELEPHONE:0795 412 2481. Or, send us an email to [email protected] not forgetting to include your contact phone number. This number is ONLY FOR ADOPTIONS. The branch can now only accept cats and kittens rescued by our inspectors due to lack of funds and safe spaces to care for them.

VISIT OUR ADOPTION POLICY PAGE AT http://www.rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk/about-the-branch/our-policies

We ask for an adoption fee of £60 for an adult cat and £70 for a kitten (cash please) to offset some of the costs we incur in caring for and treating the cats in our care, please contact us for terms for multiple adoptions or when adopting an elderly cat. When compared with the initial expense of essential welfare costs when obtaining a “free” kitten from a friend or neighbour, such as neutering, Blood tests, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment the estimated cost of which is now over £200, by adopting one of our animals you are saving money and…….more importantly a life. See our Adoption Process on the right hand column particularly the link to – Adopting a Cat from the branch for a full breakdown of costs.

To see more information and photos (if available) please just click on the “.. continue reading” link which will take you to each cat or kitten’s full information and photos then by clicking on their thumbnail photos you will be able to view larger images.

To see even more cats looking for homes please follow the “older posts” link at the foot of each page.

ace-cat-2 Meet Ace … I’m looking for my forever home and can’t wait to meet you all when it’s safe to do so. I was left dumped in my carrier. But I’m glad I’m safe now. I’m 5 years old and a very friendly, loving boy.

Ace will be so happy to meet you once the cattery’s lock down is over.

Restrictions on rehoming

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Adopt a Dog, Branch News and Updates | Comments Off

Due to the Corona Virus from 25th March 2020 we are no longer be able to rehome the cats and dogs in our care. Once we have the all clear from the National Society and Government we will add photographs of all our cats and dogs currently being cared for and looking for new homes.

This will protect our volunteers and adopters alike as our adoption process involves face to face handovers and home visiting. It does not mean that the animals themselves pose a threat to people’s health.
