HASLEMERE ADOPTION CENTRE HOME PAGE
Our rebuild is now complete and we re-opened on Saturday 9 July. We are open between 11am and 3pm every day except Wednesday (also closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day).
If you are interested in adopting a cat, it is best to make an appointment for viewing. Cats available for adoption are advertised on our website - See our "Adopt a cat" page - or on our Facebook page “Cats Protection Haslemere” or call us on 01428 604297 to speak directly to a member of staff.

Could you be a Kitten Fosterer?
As we are in the middle of "kitten season" we are making another desperate plea for kitten fosterers. We really need the support of fosterers to help us to continue taking in kittens, especially during this busy period as we are now full to the brim and unable to take in any more unwanted kittens unless we have the support of fosterers.
For further information please contact us
How can I become a Kitten Fosterer?...
Anyone could become a fosterer. You will need a secure room to keep your foster cat in (the cat will have to stay indoors for the duration of its stay with you). A member of staff will visit your home to answer any questions you may have. We supply everything required for the cat from the food to the litter. You will need to have your own transport to take the cat for veterinary treatment if required at our local Woodlands veterinary center in Liphook. If you have your own cats they must be fully vaccinated, neutered and kept separately from your foster cat.

Whilst we pride ourselves on the care given to all our resident Cats and Kittens, the Haslemere Adoption Centre cannot provide the levels of love, comfort and security found in a real home. If you wish to adopt a Cat or Kitten - singular or plural - we have an extensive choice, as below, all needing a loving home:
Young to Mature
Large to Small
Energetic to Sedentary
Happy to Sad
Individuals, Pairs or Multiples
We aim to match our Cats with the right homes, such as families with children, older people who need a companion, or rural homes that need mousers.
Have you a place in your home for a domestic feline companion or three? If yes, please use the 'Adopt a Cat' link on the left to browse images of the currently available Cats and read their details. Individual Cats feature on other pages on this Web Site, such as the News Articles. When relevant, 'Newly Available/New Arrivals' pages are also included in the 'Adopt a Cat' section; however, 'Newly Available' Cats may not be ready for re-homing for a period ranging from a few days to a few weeks. Individual 'Cat Pages' displaying additional images, information and video are occasionally included in the same Section.
When you visit The Centre, please come with an open mind and an understanding that many of the Cats will have endured some degree of stress or unpleasantness before reaching our Centre. Similarly, Cats unavoidably arriving from former loving homes can find life in The Centre extremely stressful. Their familiar routines and surroundings have been snatched away and they cannot understand why this has happened. Consequently, some Cats will not present themselves too well on a first meeting. Please understand their situation and do not be put-off if they are not immediately loving and affectionate. Apparently 'withdrawn' or 'unfriendly' Cats invariably completely change their personality once happily settled into a new loving home. Please read our many 'Success Stories', accessed via the 'Feature Pages' Menu, for absolute confirmation of such change.

CP Adoption Information
If you have already made a decision to adopt, only the choice remains, consider discussing with Haslemere Centre in advance the likelihood that a Home Visit will be sensibly necessary and, if the answer is yes, arrange for the visit to take place before coming along to choose your new companion(s). Then, when you visit, if you meet the ideal Cat or Kitten for you that choice can be immediately reserved. Moreover, if you have all preparations in place and your new family member(s) are ready to be homed, your choice(s) can go home with you that day. Following this sequence avoids any concerns that whilst waiting for a Home Visit to be completed, your ideal feline companion(s) could be re-homed with another family.
Please take time to read the information available on the 'Cat Care Reference Information' pages on this site. Particularly the Pamphlet 'Welcome Home' - some very important tips contained within. A Link is available below.
