Thank you for considering adopting a
cat or kitten from Goole RSPCA. We have many character cats and kittens in
our care and feel sure that we will be able to find your new forever friend.
Please note that we do not rehome kittens into families with children under
five years of age, if this applies to you please consider a young cat of six
months or older.
All applicants need first to complete and submit a Perfect Match Form (DOWNLOAD HERE (.docx) DOWNLOAD HERE (.pdf). You will then be contacted by a trained Home Visitor to arrange a suitable time for an informal video (eg, Facetime or WhatsApp) chat about you, your family and lifestyle and your home environment. It also allows us to find out exactly what sort of cat you are looking for, eg, male or female, cat or kitten.
The results of the home visit will be discussed by a group of experienced branch trustees who will decide which, if any, of the cats in our care would be suitable for you. You will be notified as soon as possible of the outcome of your application.
If you are successful you will then be contacted by a fosterer to arrange an online viewing of the particular cat or cats. (This may change once rules concerning COVID-19 are amended.) If we have found your perfect match you will be invited to come and collect the cat at a mutually convenient time.
The cats and kittens fostered by Goole RSPCA are include mainly unwanted or unloved and will need considerable time and patience from an understanding owner to allow them to form a purr-fect relationship and gain confidence.The fostering team look after the cats and kittens at their own homes so get to know their personalities well and we take great care in our matching process.
If there is no suitable cat currently in our care that we think would suit you then you will be invited to go onto our waiting list. We have cats and kittens coming into care on a regular basis so hopefully the wait won’t be long.
Adoption fees as of 1st April 2022
The branch has taken the difficult decision to increase our adoption fees as we want to continue to be able to support the cats in our care and meet the ever increasing costs of veterinary treatment.
£100 per kitten (under 6mnths of age) £85 per adult. Healthy cats and kittens cost us a minimum of £150 for a male £160 for a female, which includes the minimum care of neutering, vaccinating and ID chipping each cat.
