Applications for the 2024 Melbourne Cat Lovers Festival Adoption Zone are now open…

The Adoption Zone is always the most popular attraction at the Festival, providing visitors with an opportunity to speak directly with adoption groups and hopefully find their next best friend. It’s all about getting trusted, reliable advice at the event on adoption, including the rescue and fostering options, plus information on the process and pitfalls of adopting your next cat.

What’s included for Adoption Groups?
In line with our ongoing commitment to ending Cat homelessness, we are providing the opportunity for a limited number of Adoption Groups to exhibit within the popular Adoption Zone FREE OF CHARGE. We will cover your exhibiting costs and allocate stands based on your date of application and the size and qty of cats you can bring to the Festival. All participating organisations will receive the following benefits:

Expo stand: Approx 3m x 3m including walls, carpet lighting power and signage.
Staff Access: Exhibitor badges and lanyards for staff/volunteers on your stand.
Cat Access: Registration for your cats to be on your stand during the Festival
(cats and handlers must comply with our comprehensive Animal Management Plan).
Website: Dedicated page on the Exhibitor List and Adoption Zone pages on our website for your Organisation including editorial and links to your website and social media.

This is a wonderful opportunity to align with Australia’s leading and most exciting cat-inspired festivals where you can help find loving, well-suited homes for all your Cats in need. No other event in Australia can provide direct access to so many households looking to adopt and certainly not free of charge.
