Open Days

Open days are currently suspended due to Covid -19. Please contact us for information regarding adoption.

Come and see our cats at Celia Hammond Animal Trust's weekend rescue centre open days.

What better way to spend a few hours than meeting some of our adorable rescued cats and kittens? Two of our centres are open to potential adopters every weekend – so if you are interested in welcoming a new pet (or two) into your home, please do come and see us!

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be on hand to talk you through the adoption process, and introduce you to some of our lovely cats and kittens! We have all sorts of cats needing homes – from pairs of kittens to elderly cats; cats needing homes with gardens and cats suitable for indoor-only homes; single cats, pairs or trios; and (not forgetting) feral and semi-feral cats who are seeking suitable outdoor homes.

With kitten season well and truly underway, we are also caring for lots of young mothers and their newborn litters, who have been rescued from gardens, under decking, in sheds, and even hiding under rubble. They are being given lots of attention by the staff and volunteers at our centres and foster homes to get them used to human contact, and many mothers and kittens are ready to be welcomed into their forever homes right now.

All of our cats are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and undergo a complete health check before being homed – so you can adopt from us with full peace of mind.

The hundreds of cats and kittens waiting for new homes at our rescue centres come from all walks of life, and are a real mix of ages, looks and personalities. The one thing that they have in common, however, is that they all really deserve the chance to live a happy life in a home of their own.

Our Open Days are held at:

Greenacres Rehoming Centre & Sanctuary (Stubb Lane, Brede, Near Hastings, TN31 6BT) - open Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm-4.30pm

Lewisham Rescue Centre (233-235 Lewisham Way, London, SE4 1UY) - open Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm-5pm

We look forward to seeing you there!

*Please note that our Canning Town homing centre is currently open by appointment only.
