Adoption and Adoption Process
DID YOU KNOW THAT:
All our cats and kittens receive the highest quality of
care and they are checked upon on a number of
occasions throughout the day. We also monitor
and record all the information on our dedicated software.
THINKING OF ADOPTING A CAT/KITTEN?
Here at BCWR Kittens we believe that many careful considerations should be made before choosing to adopt a cat or kitten.
We make every effort to ensure that all our animals are placed in a suitable enviroment, where they will be loved and looked after.
Are you aware that a cat will depend on you every day of their life and that many cats live for 15-20 years?
Are you financially stable and willing to pay out regularly for flea and worm treatments, vets' fees, vaccinations and annual boosters and the possibility of costly vets bills in the event of illness or accident?
If you answered YES to the above questions, adopting a cat or kitten may be for you!
KITTENS AND CATS FOR ADOPTION
The minimum donation for adopting a kitten is £75 and for a neutered young adult it is £45. This includes:
- Preventative treatments ie, worming and flea prevention whilst at the rescue
- Neutering at our vets
- Post adoption vet checks
- First Vaccination at our vets
- Cats adopted from BCWR come with 5 Weeks Free pet insurance – whatever their age!
We charge a minimum donation to help offset some of our veterinary costs. Our current minimum donation scales are £75 for kittens and £45 for adult cats.
The minimum donation requested is less than it costs us, and significantly less than it would cost you if you were to take the cat to the vet yourself to have the same treatment done independently. We appreciate any additional donation you are able to make over and above the fee charged.
If you choose to adopt one of our cats or kittens please be aware that all cats will be covered for approximately 2 weeks for flea and worm treatment after leaving the rescue.
As new owners you must make arrangements for your cat or kitten to have it's follow up vaccinations.
If you are adopting a kitten, the kitten when old enough MUST be neutered. This is arranged directly through our vets, the details of this will be on your adoption certificate. ALL adults cats are neutered at our vets, prior to leaving the rescue.
The cost of neutering is paid by BCWR Kittens.
BCWR is run entirely by volunteers and because most of the volunteers either work, have busy family lives or other commitments we are not available for adoption 24 hours a day. However we dedicate our whole weekends to the rehoming of our cats and kittens.
We are open on both Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm and 4pm for people to drop in.
If these times are not convenient please contact Katie on 07942822509 and we will try and arrange a mutually convenient time.
