If you require any help     re-homing your cat/stray please telephone us and we can point you in the direction you need.

We will no longer be accepting bric-a-brac for the time being, we need to empty our shop ready for our building work which will be starting soon, we will still accept prizes for our events as they help us raise funds for our cats.

Centre Redevelopment

new site

Centre upgrade 2018

Spring 2018 we will not be bringing in any new adult cats and only a minority of new kittens as long as we have a foster home for them to stay with until they are ready for adoption.

Our isolation block will be used as a re-homing block which holds 5 pens, cats will be travelling to us from our sister shelter Downham Market where they will go into that block and put up for adoption.

We will be open for re-homing as usual (daily 11am - 4pm) and any new updates will be put on our Website or Facebook page on progress of the new build.

If you require your cat to be re-homed or you find any cats/kittens you would like help with please telephone us as usual 01362 687919 or contact Downham Market Cats Protection on 01366 382311, we will pop your details onto our sister shelters waiting list at Downham Market Cats Protection where they will try to help as soon as space becomes available.

We do apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst this project is being built.
