About Adopting

Adopt, don't shop.

Adopting is one of the best things you will do. Knowing that your new furry family addition has been given a better life, with love and care that they may not have otherwise had is a great feeling. 

All our cats and kittens are cared for temporarily by our fantastic volunteer fosterers, in their own homes within the Barnsley area, until a loving forever home becomes available.

At Barnsley RSPCA, we are all about rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing pets to loving forever homes.


Cats Needing Forever Homes

All our cats are cared for temporarily with our volunteer fosterers in their own homes in the Barnsley area, until they are ready to find a new, loving, forever family.

Depending on their circumstances this can take considerable time with a lot of tender loving care, food, medication and vet consultations, and they are always neutered, fully vaccinated, wormed and microchipped before they come to you.

Our cats and kittens are not free. In order to try to cover some of these pre - adoption costs, which are paid for entirely with public funding, we ask a fixed donation which is non- refundable.


Cats £85

Kittens £110

To let us know you're interested in adopting one of our cats or kittens, including the ones featured below, please download and fill in a Perfect Match Form, save it to your computer, and attach it to an email to us using the circular buttons below.

We will then contact you.

Temporary COVID rules state that adopters must be within 1 hour's drive of our Barnsley based fosterers. We are also carrying out virtual home checks via videos and photographs and Google Maps checks.

We would like any cats that are featured together to be re-homed together, as they can bond very closely with their friend or sibling.

Cats displaying the 'I'm Reserved' note are no longer available.
