During the current lockdown period, YCR has made the decision to close our centre for adoptions. All the cats will be cared for in either foster homes or by on-site staff/volunteers at the centre. If you would like to express an interest in a cat you see on the website, please email with your name, address, contact details and the reference number of the cat in question. We will speak to you about the cat and where possible will reserve the cat pending our reopening.

We make an adoption charge, which goes towards the costs of neutering, microchipping, vaccinating and treatment for worms and fleas - all things which protect your cat.  The costs we incur are way way higher than the adoption fee we charge, so we appeal to all our adopters to make an extra donation if you can, or even better, to set up a regular donation gift to us.  You can do this by clicking on the donate link at the top of our website, or by clicking here.  Thank you

These are our cats that are ready, or nearly ready, for adoption. Please click on the cat for more information.  If you would like to ask about a cat, or to reserve one, please contact us by phone - 01535 647184 - or email us by clicking here.

Please note, we can only reserve cats for three days.  When you reserve a kitten it gives you the right of first refusal however that is dependent on you being able to visit the centre within three days of the kitten being ready for adoption. While we understand that it's tricky as we can't give set dates when a kitten will be ready we want to make sure that kittens go to a loving home as soon as possible and are not left on their own for a long time. If you are unable to visit the kitten within these three days we will unfortunately have to cancel your reservation. We also reserve the right to decline you a cat if we feel that particular cat would not be suitable in your home (we will do our best to suggest an alternative more suitable cat).
