Cat Rescue Newcastle cannot legally take in Stray cats.
Cats especially can appear to be strays yet be someones much loved pet
that may be missing from home. Although C.R.N's aim is to re-home cats
if a cat has a chance to be reunited with its family this is a first priority as we would much rather
cats stay in there loving homes in the first place. Before C.R.N can take on a cat we need to truly know
first that it is indeed a homeless cat. Therefore if you do find a stray your first port of call is the local vets
the vets will be able to firstly scan the cat for a micro-chip and will be able to contact its owners.
This is why micro-chipping your pets is highly important even if you have an inside cat.
If the cat doesn't have a chip the vets will be able to take appropriate measures for the cat
in order to give the cat the best possible chance to re-home it.
Although Shelter pets are C.R.N's highest priority occasionally we may be able to squeeze in a
private surrender in special situations. We can never guarantee if we have room to fit in a
private surrender. We do ask for a $50 surrender fee if we are able to take on your cat.
This is in order to help us with costs that may incur when taking on a cat.
As Shelter pets on limited time are our first priority if you are finding a new home for your pet yourself here is a great article with some tips to help you in rehoming your pet to the right home.
