Welcome to the official website of Cats Protection's Exeter Axhayes Adoption Centre and Taunton Homing & Information Centre. We are dedicated to finding good homes for cats in need as well as supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats and improving people’s understanding of cats and their care. 
We here at Axhayes have around 150 cats and kittens in our care at the moment and more waiting to come in. We need more cat-loving people who could offer them a home. We are open 7 days a week 11-3pm, with a late night opening on Thursdays til 7pm. We are only closed  Christmas Day, Boxing day and New Year's day.  No appointment is necessary, so come and meet our lovely cats today....  Contact us 0n 01395 232377

Taunton Homing & Information Centre is open 7 days a week 10am - 4pm and can be found at Blackdown Garden Centre near Wellington, TA21 9HY.  Here, we have 5 pens with cats & kittens ready & waiting for their forever homes.  We also offer advice and information about cat care, cat behaviour and neutering.  Contact us on 01823 667945.


Amazon Wish List
We have created an Amazon Wish List for our adorable cats and kittens.  This means that you can donate by buying things we need rather than giving money.  If you would like to buy something from our Wish List, please follow the link below


Thank-you from all the cats and kittens!

We get a lot of queries regarding stressed or upset cats that display unwanted behaviour in their homes.
We have attached a couple of links below provided by Cats Protection that might help. We know everyone wants the best for their cats and make sure they have tried everything before considering giving them up. It might be an interesting read for anyone with an existing cat or someone considering adopting one as well! If you have any questions you can always call us on 01395 232377. 

This special scent (odourless to people and other animals) that Feliway utilizes is a replication of the pheromone that cats leave naturally when they are feeling comfortable in their environment. Even small changes in your home can upset your cat and prevent them from leaving this pheromone, which in turn makes them feel less secure, and increases their stress. 

What do cats need? Understanding Feline Origin (UFO) is a free online course which will help you care for your cat`s basic needs by learning about its history and origins.


Cats Protection has produced a large number of helpful leaflets to help you care for your cat and provide up to date information on everything from Microchipping, Cat behaviour, Neutering, Toxoplasmosis, Veterinary guides etc etc. If you have any questions or issues then have a read of these!
