We are a group of private rescuers that take in cats and kittens from the main high kill shelters in Sydney - Blacktown Animal Holding Facility, Renbury Farm Animal Shelter and occasionally Hawkesbury Animal Shelter. In most cases, if we didn't take these animals, they would die.
Our carers reside in Sydney Metro as well as regional areas. Some of our carers list their phone numbers on postings so you can contact them directly. They know the animal well and can provide first hand knowledge of what a cat is like. They can assist you in assessing whether a particular cat or kitten is suitable as your next family member.
If you are looking for a specific type of cat, please let us know. We visit the shelters regularly and are aware of the animals that are available.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT STRAYS OR SURRENDERS. Please contact your local council regarding strays. If you want to surrender your family member, please do your best to try and rehome them to a good, permanent, home before contacting us. Alternatively, contact the larger rescue organisations such as Animal Welfare League, that receive public donations. If we take a surrender, it means a cat or kitten already in a pound dies.
STEP 1: Send us an email with some details about the home you can offer. We like to match people to animals so the result is a happy home for life for owner and animal. Accordingly, as we already know the cat, we want to understand what you believe you can bring to the relationship. Please include a contact telephone number in your email, including, if necessary, the time it may be most convenient for us to contact you.
STEP 2: We will give you a call to discuss the animal. The person calling you will be a Pound Cat Adoptions coordinator, or the cat's foster carer.
STEP 3: If all sounds great and we both think it would be a good match for you, then we usually come and visit you in your home for a meet and greet. We put a lot of time into our cats and like to be certain they will live in a safe environment, so we do like to see their potential new home and to meet your other family members.
STEP 4: If we all agree that it is a good match then an adoption can take place.
STEP 5: We do offer a trial period of 2 weeks, which can be extended if necessary. \ If it becomes clear the relationship will not work, we are very happy to take the cat back and will return the majority of the adoption fee, unless you want to try again with a different cat. We want to ensure that the cat is happy and so are you, and understand that sometimes things do not work out. In those circumstances, we want the cat back - we do not want it to end up in another pound environment! We help where we can by providing advice on care of the animal as best we can but will refer you to vets for any health issues.
All our animals will be desexed, vaccinated (at least 1st F3), microchipped and their worming and flea treatments will be up to date. Some are also life time registered for NSW.
