Rescue Is Our Favourite Breed

Rehoming a cat

Rehoming a Battersea rescue cat is such a very rewarding experience and it gives our cats the second chance of the loving home they deserve.

We do everything we can to match you with the right cat for you – so when you register your details, we’ll ask lots of questions about your life, home and preferences.

There’s a lot for you to think about too and we know rehoming is an emotional process. So when you adopt from Battersea, we’ll be with you every step of the way with advice and support.
