Staff work very hard to reduce any high stress levels and seek to match individual Cats with a New and Loving Home.
Potential Adopters are welcome to visit The Centre during our Normal Daily Opening Period 11.00 am - 3.00 pm apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day & New Years Day when The Centre is closed.
We at cats protection do rely on volunteers to help us on a day to day basis, we have many different volunteer opportunities available at our centre. We have DofE students come to us for their voluntary hours which is a brilliant experience for young people working towards their award. Also general volunteering varies from morning cleaning sessions and socialisation to afternoon “cat cuddling” which is vital for reducing the stress and encouraging our more nervous cats out of their shell. We also have foster and fundraising opportunities available if you were interested in a more behind the scenes role.”
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 you can call us but on our busy days sending us an email would be a better way to contact us.
