The Cat Orphanage Sydney, is a place for cats to be loved till they are adopted to their forver homes. We are a team of volunteers working together to reduce the number homeless cats in Sydney, in a humane and ethical manner.
Founded in 2018, we strive to make a difference in the lives of our homeless cat population. We do whatever it takes to give these cats the best future. We are a group of feeders, fosterers and trappers who all work together to rescue, desex, rehabilitate and re-home cats.
We're always seeking new foster carers and volunteers, so if you're interested in supporting The Cat Orphanage Sydney, please get in touch or make a donation via the site.

2. FILL IN THE ADOPTION APPLICATION FORM (LINK BELOW)
We do everything possible to ensure our cats go to loving and suitable homes. The adoption application helps us understand your circumstances and, if suitable, make recommendations on which cats may be more suitable.
3. MEET THE CAT/S
We'll arrange a meet and greet, with the cats, at the foster carers home. Each cat available for adoption is currently living with one of our amazing foster carers, located all over Sydney. The suburb for each cat is labelled on the cat's profile page.
4. HOME INSPECTION
If all parties are happy, we will then arrange a home inspection. This is to ensure the information provided is genuine and the cats have a suitable home. Please note that all volunteers work full time so in most cases it will be after work hours or weekends, depending on your location.
5. FINALISING VET WORK
All cats are adopted out desexed, microchipped and with up to date vaccination flea and worm treatments.. depending on the cat's age, condition rescued or time since rescuing, the vet work may not be complete. The Adoption fee also covers a $57.00 lifetime registration fee & FIV/FELV testing.
6. PAY DEPOSIT
A non refundable deposit of $150.00 will be required to hold any cat. Please note we do not hold cats if you are unable to take the cat when it is ready. If you are not ready at the moment, please only apply once you are ready.
7. PAY THE REMAINING BALANCE
This fee contributes towards the vet bills & care since rescue. No cats will be released until payment has been received in full.
8. START YOUR TRIAL ADOPTION
All cats are adopted out on a 2 week trial adoption to make sure it is the right fit for everyone.
We reserve the right to decline any applications.
