It is also an opportunity to offer you further information on how to care for your animals, from vaccinations to diet, and for you to ask any questions you might have.

    Step 3

    If you have chosen an animal, after the home check we will give you the details of the fosterer who is looking after your potential new family member, so you can arrange a convenient time for you and the fosterer to meet.

    Step 4

    To go ahead with the adoption, you will need to complete and sign our adoption form and leave the minimum donation for your new companion(s) with the fosterer. Please see minimum donations.

    Finally please don’t forget to come back and leave us a message on our Testimonials page once your new pet has settled in!


    • At A.R.C., we do not home kittens before 8 weeks of age. If, however, kittens are orphaned and fully weaned, it may be in their best interest to be homed at 6 weeks of age to an experienced home
    • A.R.C. does not advocate the homing of young kittens into solely indoor environments, unless the kitten has a special requirement
    • A.R.C. does not home single kittens into homes where they will be left alone for long periods of time. We ask people who work all day to have an older kitten or a pair.


    Unfortunately we see first hand the issues caused when cats have been homed as ‘indoor cats’. We will only home a cat indoors if it has a special requirement.

    Adoption Donation

    All our cats are neutered, de-flea’d, wormed, microchipped and may have had their initial vaccinations. Kittens are also de-flea’d, wormed and microchipped, but will only be neutered and have their initial vaccinations if old enough.

    While it would be great to rehome animals for free, like all animal charities we need to cover the costs of our vet fees, pet food, litter, beds and housing, toys and all the other associated costs of running A.R.C. Our vet fees alone are in excess of £5,000 a month. Instead of charging a set fee, we ask for a minimum donation as you take your new companion home.

    Minimum Donation for Adopting

    • Kitten: £120
    • Pair of kittens: £220
    • Neutered adult cat (non-vaccinated): £80
    • Neutered adult cat with initial or full vaccinations: £100

    You can pay your adoption fees directly via PayPal, GoCardless or bank transfer. If you cover the fees payable in PayPal or GoCardless, your money will go even further to helping the animals in our care. Please make sure to say which animal you are adopting on your payment to help us track our income. You can also complete this form with details of your payment – thank you!
