Donations: Fife Cat Shelter is registered with Virgin Money Giving to make it easier for our supporters to make donations and to help raise vital funds to keep the shelter running. When adopting a cat, please consider paying your donation through this service as it allows us to automatically reclaim tax through the Inland Revenue Gift Aid scheme.

Please phone between 9.30am and 7pm - Messages can be left on the answer machine after 7pm and will be replied to the following day, or in a case of urgency, if possible, replied to the same evening.
Please note, cats handed into the Shelter as strays are kept for 10 days and then rehomed if there is no evidence of ownership e.g. collar with name tag, or microchip, or if we are not contacted within that time by an owner. Because of the volume of requests to take in cats, we cannot keep cats for a longer time before finding new homes for them.
If owners wish us to take in their cat(s) for rehoming, there is a minimum donation fee of £10 which goes towards a veterinary check up and feeding the cat(s)
If you wish to offer a cat a home, please read the following:
There is a donation charge for neutered adult cats of £70 and the donation for a kitten is £60 - but please read further on the Kitten page
Please consider carefully before offering a cat/kitten a home, as veterinary costs can be high. For example, it costs approximately £75 to neuter a cat and any kitten homed by us must be neutered by its new owner at the appropriate time. Vaccinations, initially done at 9 then 12 weeks cost approx. £60 , and there is a booster then due every year of approx. half the first cost. It is therefore advisable to take out pet insurance.
Unfortunately we cannot accept cats for re-homing which have serious health problems, as they are virtually impossible to re-home.
Stray and Lost / Missing Cats
Fife Cat Shelter recommends that you have your cat micro-chipped in case he/she goes missing.
Please read our Policy for Stray and Unidentified Cats.
