From relationship breakdowns to a change in financial circumstances, there are many reasons why you might have to give up your cat. We know this is a difficult decision so we’re here to make the process as simple as possible.
With PetRehomer, you get to decide who adopts your cat. You know your cat best, so we think you’re the right person to choose their next home.
Anyone interested in your cat will message you through PetRehomer once they have been screened by our team. This gives you a chance to view their profile and decide if they can give your cat a good home. You’ll also get to message and meet the adopter in person. At every stage, it’s not too late to change your mind if something doesn’t feel right.
PetRehomer is a good choice if you’re worried about your cat going into a rescue centre. We offer a direct rehoming service so your cat will go straight to their new home instead of having a temporary stay in a cattery. This will be less disruptive and give them a better chance of settling in to their new life.
If your cat needs to be rehomed immediately – perhaps because you’re in danger or they are – get in touch with a rescue centre. We don’t have our own facilities so we can’t take in any animals.
Unfortunately, we can’t help you find temporary care for your cat.
If you’re considering temporary care because you’re not ready to give up your cat or you think your situation will change soon, don’t rush into anything. Once you’ve handed over your cat to their new guardian, you won’t be able to get them back. So please only list your cat if you’re sure it’s the right thing to do.
Many people are willing to adopt older cats or cats with health problems. So if your cat is in the later stages of their life or has a chronic condition, you can still find them a new home on PetRehomer.
To make sure your cat is adopted by someone who can give them the right care, please give lots of information in their profile – for example:
