About us

At our shelter in Kingston, Wellington, we care for up to 50 cats, all in need of loving new homes.

Who we are

Cats Protection Wellington is a registered charity run by our cat-loving members and volunteers. 


  • To take in displaced or unwanted cats and rehome them where possible
  • To inform the public on the care of cats 
  • To encourage the desexing of all cats not required for breeding

Our Shelter

Our Wellington shelter is at 29 Vancouver Street in Kingston. We're open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays between 12pm and 4pm, but you will need to ring first to make an appointment.

If you're looking to adopt, an adoption fee of $80 applies (or $120 for a pair). All our cats have been vet-checked, received flea and worm treatment, and been vaccinated, desexed and microchipped.

All our cats are homed from the Kingston shelter so we can ensure the right home for a cat, follow up for the first few weeks after the cat is adopted, and keep in touch with the new owners or owners, should they wish it. CPW does not have any association with pet shops for rehoming cats.

CPW does not have any kittens or cats under 6 months old as we do not currently have the facilities for them.
