We can’t wait to welcome you back

With the easing of COVID restrictions in Melbourne, we are delighted to share that from Monday 29th of November 2021, we will re-open The Cat Protection Society of Victoria to fully vaccinated members of the public.

All visitors aged 16 years and older will need to check in on arrival, show proof of vaccination status and wear a mask for the duration of your visit.

Adoption Shelter: 

Our Adoption Shelter will be open Monday-Thursday from 10am-4pm, Fridays from 10am-6pm and Weekends from 10am-3pm. If you are interested in adopting and providing a furever home to a cat in need, you will need to complete an Adoption Application and book in a meet and greet appointment via our website by clicking here. Meet and greet appointments can be booked up to 10 days in advance.

Public access to our Adoption Shelter may be limited based on the number of adoption meet and greet appointments scheduled, the number of cats and kittens available for adoption and the availability of our staff. If you are simply wanting to visit the adoption shelter to view the cats and kittens available / view the facility and do not intend on adopting, we recommend visiting of a weekday / outside of peak periods. You may also like to consider purchasing a Cat Cuddling VIP (Very Important Petter) Certificate for a private adoption shelter tour and cat-cuddling experience. You can learn more about our Cat Cuddling Certificates by clicking here. 

Veterinary Clinic: 

Our Veterinary Clinic will be open from Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm. Fully vaccinated customers will be able to enter our clinic and attend the veterinary consultation with your cat/s. If you are not fully vaccinated or are unable to prove your vaccination status, our team will collect your cat/s from our front carpark and conduct a phone consult.
