A big THANK YOU to everyone who enquired about adoption prior to the lock down, we appreciate your support.  Please be assured that we have enough staff to look after the remaining cats and kittens in our care and thank all those offering to help.  Our adoptions are now closed until further notice.

For all non-adoption enquiries, our office will be contactable by telephone and email (cplcats@xtra.co.nz) from Monday 23rd.  Should you need to see the office for any reason, please telephone us first on 03-3766094. Please remember that we only have one phone line so do leave a message if it goes to the answer phone as will be dealing with another enquiry. Thank you.

Our op-shop at 475 Worcester Street will be closed until further notice. 

Stay safe everyone and thank you for your continued support.
