London is home to an estimated 1.5million cats and the Mitcham Homing Centre is our first step in targeting urban areas identified as being of high need.
The new centre is the first of its kind and has a transportable model which allows the internal structure to be moved to a new site if demand in the Mitcham area drops in the future.
