Welcome to the National Cat Adoption Centre

- The UK's largest cat rehoming centre

Watch cats live here 

As the UK's largest cat rehoming centre, we know about cats and what it takes to ensure the ideal pet for any family.

If you are looking to home a cat, we can help you choose one that is best suited to your home. 

Visitors to our centre in Chelwood Gate can meet our feline residents waiting for their forever homes and talk to our dedicated staff about cats in our care.

We also have an enjoyable nature trail, snacks and drinks in our welcoming café and a gift shop stuffed with all things cat.

The Centre is open daily from 10am-4pm, with last adoption viewings at 3:30pm.

We welcoming other ways to help us care for cats, too, such as financial support or donations of food, toys or bedding.

Why not consider booking our venue for conferences, talks or cat-themed kids parties? Just ask about what we can do.

Cats and staff at the NCAC thank you for your support.

It is with extreme sadness we inform you that on Friday 17th February we lost our dear friend and colleague Rob, affectionately known as ‘Big Rob’.

Joining the National Cat Adoption Centre as a cat care assistant 7 years ago, he joined a large team of almost exclusively women and Rob became an honorary hen in no time at all.

He was a huge team player, who threw himself into his work.

Rob was a true gentleman; a caring, kind person with a beautiful soul, a huge heart and a great sense of humour.

He was a truly wonderful human being who will be hugely missed by every single member of the cattery.
