To ensure the best possible match for you and your new furry friend, 2nd Chance Cat Rescue requires a questionnaire to be completed prior to any adoption and to express your interest in adopting through us.

All mandatory fields must be completed to activate the Submit button (an error message will display next to the missed field as a guide). Once you have clicked on the Submit button, a notification popup will show, indicating that your form has been submitted correctly, then the form will clear.  If you have not heard from us or one of our foster carers within 24 hours, please message us via our Contact Form to ensure we received your completed questionnaire.

Meet and Greet

You are welcome to arrange an appointment to meet one or more of the cats and kittens available for adoption by contacting us using the Contact Us form.  Please note: Most of our carers are located in the outer South East of Melbourne.

Adoption Days

During kitten season, we hold regular adoption days. To keep updated on dates and locations, please “Like” our Facebook page, 2nd Chance Cat Rescue Victoria and “Allow notifications”.

Fees and transfer of ownership

On Adoption day you will need to pay the fee stated on the cat’s profile.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not have EFTPOS or ATM facilities at Adoption Days. WE ONLY ACCEPT CASH.

The signed microchip change of ownership form will be sent off after a successful 2 week trial period.
