Kenya Society for the Protection & Care of Animals

First on the list of places to adopt a cat in Kenya is “Kenya Society for the Protection & Care of Animals.” Kenya Society for the Protection & Care of Animals or KSPCA is a welfare charity society or shelter in Kenya that protects pets (including cats) from abuse or the ones that have been neglected. It’s one of the few societies, charities, or shelters dedicated to doing just that in Kenya. Cat-wise, they usually care for more than 90 cats monthly and at the same time rehome 20 cats per month. The cats available at this society are shown lots of love and cared for by a dedicated staff. The cats you get from KSPCA come with up-to-date shots and microchips. Even better, they share valuable information on caring for your cat, including introducing it to other pets, which is priceless for new cat owners.

Adopt a Cat (Kenya)

Despite Adopt a Cat (Kenya) not being either a breeder or a shelter, it is a private online community for cat lovers dedicated to finding loving homes for cats throughout the country. In other words, it is a place where cat lovers can get to adopt cats. In terms of safety, it is one of the safest places to adopt a cat. The process of adopting a cat is also relatively easy: pictures of cats that are up for adoption are usually shared on the group by the owners who want to give them up with their details, including where to pick up the little one(s). If you join the group, note that there are stringent rules, including no post stating you are selling cats, so make sure you read them, or you’ll be banned, and your post will be taken down. For cat lovers putting their cats up for adoption, you can use this Facebook Adopt A Cat (Kenya) form to decide who ultimately ends up adopting your cat.
