Access to shelter
Please note that due to current construction work, access to the shelter is more limited than usual.
It may be difficult for some people with mobility issues to visit. Please call us if you would like more information.
Every year in Wellington, hundreds of cats become homeless.
When cats suddenly have nowhere to go, CPW can make sure they are fed, healthy and loved until they find new homes.
Our shelter is a comfortable place where the cats can choose to relax on large sofas or a sunny deck, or find a quiet hidey hole of their own.
We're passionate about keeping each cat happy, and matching them with the best forever home.
Open to visitors on Saturday and Sunday:
- 12pm – 3pm: Appointments for adoptions only
- 3pm – 4pm: No appointment needed, but no adoptions at this time.
Adopt a cat
Our priority is to find the right homes for the right cats.
We get to know our cats, so we know what will make them happy.
All of our cats are vet-checked regularly, desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and treated for worms and fleas.
The adoption fees are $80 for one cat or $120 for two, and can be paid by cash or eftpos.
Have a look at the cats we currently have available for adoption.
New desexing costs
The cost of desexing stops many owners from getting their cats fixed, so we can help pay for some desexing operations.
Please note our prices have just gone up, but they are still very low because of the support we get from some awesome vets in the Wellington area.
The subsidised cost through our programme is now $40 for males and $65 for females to eligible owners.
