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 by appointment from 12pm – 4pm for adoptions only.
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.

Desex your cat
The cost of desexing stops many owners from getting their cats fixed, so we can help pay for some desexing operations.
The cost to you will depend on which clinic you select. For a male cat it will be either $32.50 or $40. For females it is either $47.50 or $65.
