Ferndown Homing Centre is a purpose built facility for the rehoming of cats and kittens in the Dorset area, which opened in May 2010.  The centre was the first of it's kind not only for Cats Protection but for any other animal welfare charity.  

Visitors are welcome to come in and view the cat in our bright, modern and easily accessible centre.  Our "Homing Wing" has 24 pens, where the cats are cared for by dedicated staff and volunteers, until loving new homes are found for them.  We also have a shop on site which stocks everything you will need for your new (or existing!) companion(s).

All of the cats at our centre have been fully vet-checked and are ready to home.  They are microchipped, treated against fleas and worms, vaccinated, neutered (if over 4 months old) and are homed with 4 weeks free pet insurance courtesy of Pet Plan.

So far have found loving new homes for nearly 3000 cats and kittens.
