Rehoming • Rescue • Support • Advice • for cats and the people who care for them.
Cat People is an incorporated association that advocates for cat responsible cat ownership and welfare in the greater Melbourne area. We are all volunteers and we donate our time, money, and resources to save the lives of cats in the Melbourne, Victoria area. While we do have the support of local vets, all our expenses are paid out of our own pockets.
The Cat People of Melbourne grew out of a need for a support structure for the people who provide temporary homes for cats and orphaned kittens and help them be responsibly rehomed. More importantly, Cat People is a support network for their caregivers and adopters.
We are a fully-accredited non-profit, which will allow our members to reach out to the community for support and open new avenues for feline companions to find loving, forever homes.

To adopt a cat from Cat People you'll be required to have a remote or in-person house check done, show photo ID & proof of address, and fill out & sign an adoption contract.
Cats from our group are all are vet checked, flea treated, wormed, vaccinated and desexed before being taken home by their adopters. Additionally, all of our cats have been evaluated for behavioural traits, fed a high-quality diet, and well socialised. Please note: all Cat People cats and kittens are indoor only, this is not negotiable.
We will communicate with you through every step of the adoption process to ensure that your experience (and the cat's) is excellent and that you are confident in your decision to adopt a feline companion. Returns are only accepted due to health issues confirmed by a veterinarian.
We only accept adoptions from people with residency in Australia. If you are on a work or student visa, talk to us about fostering with the group instead!
