Our response to COVID-19

With Covid-19 restrictions now having eased in Melbourne, The Cat Protection Society of Victoria will open to the public from Thursday 7th January, 2021.

Our Adoption Shelter will be open for public “walk-in” adoptions weekdays from 10am-4pm. Adoptions by appointment (only) will be available on a Saturday and Sunday between 10am-3pm. To apply for an adoption appointment over the weekend, please complete an adoption application form by clicking here. Our team will then contact you when a suitable cat or kitten becomes available; due to an increase in demand, this may take 2+ weeks (longer if you have expressed interest in adoption a kitten specifically).

Our Feline dedicated veterinary clinic is open by appointment only. To make an appointment, please contact our  veterinary clinic on 038457.6504.

Our Retail Store is open to the public and continues to offer in-store “click and collect” food and health care items for your cat.  To view our range and to order online, visit: https://www.catprotection.com.au/shop/for-your-cat/ Same day collection is available during our Shelter opening hours when orders are placed before 12pm noon.

All visitors to our veterinary clinic and adoption shelter must abide to social distancing recommendations.

If you are experiencing any cold or flu symptoms or have come into direct contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, please contact our Shelter on 8480.6500 to reschedule any adoption or veterinary clinic appointments.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and advise if any further changes to our operating may be required.
