Cheltenham Cat Rescue is not a shelter and as such, there is no centralised location for you to visit. To adopt one of our beautiful felines, the first step is to submit an adoption application.
Rescue cats and kittens make the best companion animals. At Cheltenham Cat Rescue we have an adoption process aimed at ensuring you and your new companion will have a great long lasting relationship.
Following the submission of an adoption application form, we can then make an assessment to see if there exists a potential ‘match’. It’s not about good or bad- the questions on the form are aimed at helping us find the right companion for you and the right family for the cat/kitten going forward.
If there is potential for a good match, the foster carer will contact you to arrange a meet and greet. This is an opportunity for you to come and meet your potential new family member in their current foster environment. It’s also a great time to talk to the carer about the cat/kitten’s needs, likes/dislikes and of course, their overall personality!
If that all checks out and you and your new family member kick it off, we will bring them to you whereby we will complete a house check. Additionally, we will provide you with all the necessary paperwork and advice to set you up for success with your new best friend.
We go to these lengths because we are dealing with a life – not a transaction. It’s not in our cats’ interests to be adopted and returned when things don’t work out. We reserve the right not to provide reasons for not proceeding with any expression of interest or application.
As always, anytime you contact us, we will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible, but we are volunteers and sometimes can get busy. If you don’t hear back from us within 48 hours, please try us again.
