What we do

Our Services


We admit cats from all backgrounds regardless of age, sex,  owned or stray, pregnant or poorly, on their own or a pair.
If we can help, we will!


Adoption and rehoming

We strive to find each and every cat that comes through our doors a purrfect home. We have a thorough adoption process where we hope to match the right cat to the right home.


We are here to help and offer advice where we can. We can offer advice on cat welfare, behaviour, rehoming, lost and found cats, fostering and help with referrals for free or discounted neutering and microchipping.



We ensure every cat that comes through our doors is health checked by a vet, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and treated for any other medical conditions (eg. dentistry).

What Drives Us

Our Mission

The Sheffield Cats Shelter has been caring for stray and unwanted cats and kittens for over 120 years. Rehoming around 400 cats per year we provide a safe refuge, medical treatment – whatever the cost, and above all the love and care they deserve until they can be placed in a home.


Featured Cats

Thelma and Louise - Foster/Adoption Pending

Thelma and Louise came to us from a horrendous background. Luckily they were saved by .....a dog warden! Yep, that's right, and she's one amazing lady!

These two girls were part of a group of cats that had been left to breed and have litter after litter of kittens (some of which were given to children as "toys" and consequently died). We were heartbroken to hear this and had to help however we could.

So, we offered the space and the cats came.

Thelma and Louise are the sweetest girls and immediately made an impression on all of us at the shelter. Thelma was a little shy to begin with, but as soon as she saw we were offering a friendly hand, she came straight over and had a stroke and gave hopping head boops! Louise was fairly confident from the get-go. She took all events in her stride and not much seems to bother her. She also loves a stroke and a good chin scratch.

The two of them seem to be very close, so we wondered if they could be mother and daughter or maybe sisters. Due to them being so close, they will be rehomed together.

They have lived around other cats before, but we haven't witnessed this. And we aren't sure if they have lived with dogs before.

Going by their temperaments they may be ok with older children that are sensible and have lived with cats before.

The girls are used to going outside, so they will need a home away from main/busy roads and perhaps a nice garden to venture out in.

Lucky - Foster/Adoption Pending

Lucky is a very fussy, energetic, friendly little dude. He loves to have cuddles and kisses and is always so excited to see you!

He can play for England and I’m sure will keep his new family entertained for hours! His fosterer even said, "if you look up the characteristics for a Bengal cat, it would suit him to a T. I'm sure he thinks he's a dog!"

Lucky doesn't seem to integrate well with other cats, being more of a brutish bully! (He probably thinks he's playing, but it's too rough!). For this reason, he will need a home where he is the only cat.

Lucky had been kept indoors by his previous owner as he was too young to be allowed outside and obviously needed his vaccinations, neuter and microchip implanting first anyway. We do think that with a steady introduction, Lucky would enjoy going outside at some point.

We think Lucky would be good with children. The children in his foster home are experienced with cats and love having him around.

Please note, while Lucky is a gorgeous cat, he will require a lot of attention and things to keep his mind and body busy. Boredom can lead to stress and destructiveness, so please be aware of this before applying.

Hatty and Martha

Hatty and Martha came to us when we were told of an out of control population of cats in a garden.

Thanks to two other charities and some amazing ladies, we were able to bring these two, and another 15 cats/kittens to safety.

These two lovely ladies were unfortunately left to breed each year for at least the last two years. We are so glad to have them in our care and now neutered so they will never have to go through that again.

Both of these girls are very shy, having never been in a home before. They are not aggressive, but do take a little while to put their trust in you.

Martha is normally the first to come around and will have a fuss and purr! Hatty will have a fuss, and will even purr, but you can tell she is still scared (possibly nervous purring to calm herself).

We believe these girls would provide comfort for each other, so we will rehome them together. In the right adult only home, with experienced cat owners, these girls could flourish. They are used to being around other cats too, coming from a fairly big colony, so could be rehomed where there are existing friendly cats.

We think they will both look forward to going outside again at some point, but will need a decent settling in period to any home first.
