Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The Society's purposes are:
To sponsor educational programs that promote responsible pet ownership, humane treatment of all animals, and to reduce pet overpopulation.
To shelter cats in a healthy, cage-free environment and to provide compatible and responsible adoptions.
To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and people.
To be a friend to all cats.
The shelter provides a temporary refuge for up to 50 cats until an appropriate and permanent home can be found for each. Veterinary care, premium diet, and human interaction are lovingly provided.
CCS is open Tuesday through Friday Noon - 5:30, Saturday 11 - 4:30 and Sunday Noon - 3:00. The shelter is closed on Monday.
When you visit the shelter seeking to adopt, a Shelter Assistant will greet you. They will ask you to fill out a “Cat Finder Assistance” form that gives an idea of the type of cat you are seeking. If you have children, we require they visit the shelter with you. Also, renters should come prepared with a copy of their lease indicating cats are allowed, or their landlord’s phone number so we can verify pet allowances.
Once you have found a cat that suits you – which may take more than one visit – a Shelter Assistant will have you fill out an adoption application. You will then go through the adoption process to learn more about the specific cat you have chosen and to review the adoption contract. Adoption paperwork usually takes about 30 minutes to complete and review.
Cats available for adoption at CCS have tested negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS (FIV). They have undergone a physical examination upon entry into the shelter, and received distemper and upper respiratory vaccinations. All adoptable cats and kittens have been spayed or neutered. All cats and kittens leave the shelter with a 15-day health care assistance plan, a collar and ID tag, and an implanted microchip used to help return lost pets to their homes. We also provide a cardboard carrier to take the cat or kitten home.
Our adoption fees are:
$90 Adoption fee for one cat or kitten
$150* Discounted adoption fee for adopting a pair of cats (both cats must be one year or older)
$65 Discounted adoption fee for people 55 years or older who adopt a cat 5 years or older
* (There is no discount on adoptions where one or both cats are under one year of age.)
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.
