Additional Adoption Centers
We have outreach adoption centers at PetSmart stores in Clackamas, Hillsboro (Tanasbourne), and Tualatin. Additional outreach adoption centers are located at the Petco in Tualatin, the Pet Loft in John's Landing and Purrington's Cat Lounge.
Adoption fees help offset some of the costs associated with providing for the cats and kittens in our care—this includes housing, food/litter, medical care, enrichment, behavior modification, and more.
CAT uses variable adoption pricing. The adoption fee for each cat is dependent on many factors including age, behavior, medical condition, and demand.
Adoption fees range from $15 to $200 for cats (1 year old and above) and $100 to $200 for kittens (2-11 months old). The adoption fee for each cat is included in his/her pet bio.
Adoption discounts apply for adopting a pair of cats or kittens. Please view our website for more details.
Included in the adoption fee:
Spay or neuter surgery
Flea treatment and deworming
Microchip and registration fee
Any additional treatment needed while in our care
Post-adoption medical exam from a participating veterinary clinic
Sample bag of Purina Pro Plan food
Cat/Kitten Care Handbook and post-adoption support
The Cat Adoption Team requires all potential adoptive families to meet with a trained adoption counselor before adopting a cat. If you plan on adopting a cat the same day, please plan to visit the adoption center at least 1-2 hours prior to closing (adoptions end 30 minutes before close). Families must complete an application and sign a contract, which outlines our organization's adoption guidelines. Individuals who are interested in adopting a cat or kitten are welcome to call our facility to discuss these guidelines before visiting our adoption center.
In order to give our kittens a strong, healthy start in life, and to minimize behavior problems by assuring that they are fully weaned and litter box trained, we do not adopt out any kitten until they are at least 8-10 weeks old. Kittens age 6 weeks and older may be available for pre-adoption. Please visit our website for details.
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.
