About Our Shelter:

The Cat Welfare Association was founded in 1945 by a small group of people who saw the need for an organization designed specifically to help the many stray and abused cats in the Columbus area. We are a non-profit organization that's objective has always been to promote better care and understanding of cats while providing for the physical welfare of homeless cats and kittens.

The cats taken into our care are strays and frequently have been abused or injured. We give them plenty of tender loving care along with any necessary medical treatment they might need. Our shelter provides a home for these cats and kittens until they are adopted-- whether it be for a short time or if they live out the rest of their lives in our shelter.

Our Adoption Process:

Our shelter is open from 11:00 am - 3:30 pm every day. We have limited hours on the first Wednesday of every month from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm. All other Wednesday's we are open from 11:00 am - 7:00 pm. Adult cats may be adopted for $60 and kittens for a $70 fee. The adoption fee covers vaccinations, de-worming, feline leukemia testing, FIV testing (of adult cats), microchipping, and spaying/neutering. All adult cats are spayed/neutered before they are adopted out, while the adoption fee for kittens covers their future altering. We offer a 10 day health guarantee and return policy, but we will always take back our cats if for some reason the adoptive parent can no longer care for them. However, after the 10 day period, no refunds or exchanges can be made.

We have many wonderful felines that you can choose from so please visit us when you have plenty of time to look around and find the cat that is just right for you. Please, allow 30 minutes for our adoption process. We accept cash, checks, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and debit cards for payment.

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.
