Our Adoption Process:

No cat can be adopted without an adoption application being completed. You can find this form on our website, or stop by and pick one up. You will be notified by telephone or email as soon as your application review has been completed. This process generally takes 2-3 days. If there is a cat that interests you, a $25 non-refundable deposit can be placed on the cat and it will be held until your application is approved. If you are not approved your deposit will be returned to you. All applicants must be 18 years of age or older.

Our adoption fees are $200 for a kitten one year and under, $125 for cats over one year and $50 for special needs cats. If adopting 2 cats/kittens you will receive a $25 discount off the total fee. The adoption fee includes testing for feline leukemia and feline aids, spay/neuter, rabies, distemper, worming, flea treatments etc. Some cats and kittens may not be able to receive all of these vaccines and it will become your responsibility to make sure your new cat's vaccines are tended to. All new parents receive a health record stating what vaccines and treatment the cat has had.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
