The Sheffield Cats Shelter is open for adoptions:

Wednesdays and Fridays- 1:30pm to 3pm

Saturdays and Sundays- 1pm to 3:30pm


We kindly ask that visitors have a genuine interest in adopting one of our cats, and understand that we may not have cats suited to your needs on the day that you visit. As we are a small shelter, we do not have the staff numbers to show members of the public around who do not want to adopt. This policy is also in place to minimise stress to our feline residents.

To see the cats that we have available for adoption, and to learn more about the home that they would need, click here.

A little more about us

On average, it costs us £375 to care for each cat or kitten from admission to adoption. We only ask for £90 per adoption for each cat or kitten as a contribution towards the costs of neutering, micro-chipping and vaccinations. For the rest, we rely solely on donations and our own fundraising efforts.

Every cat receives a full veterinary health check and any medical treatment it requires, regardless of cost. We never put cats to sleep unless recommended by the Vet for the cat’s welfare or when there is no treatment that can help.

Adopters are alerted to any existing health or temperament issues of their chosen cat and receive 4 weeks free Pet Plan cover. We will also cover any vets fees (at our used veterinary practice) for illness notified within 7 days of adoption.

We take our role within the community very seriously. By prioritising the admission of un-neutered females, pregnant females and cats with kittens living outdoors, we aim to prevent new colonies from being set up.

In addition we also work closely with Social Services and make every effort to fast-track pets needing a place due to domestic abuse or and owners admission to care.

Our Waiting List

We operate a waiting list for rehoming. The Shelter runs at full capacity at all times and as a result we are unable to admit cats straight away. Please visit our Rehoming page for more information.

Please do not bring a cat or kitten to the shelter unless we have made specific arrangements with you.
