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 purpose of this Project is twofold: 1) We aim to rescue these animals (since many would not survive without our care), get them spayed or neutered, and placed into caring homes. 2) The Project is an excellent way to train future veterinarians in kitten neonatal husbandry techniques.
None of our foster kittens are involved in medical research and no healthy kittens are euthanized because a permanent home cannot be found. All kittens remain in the program until they are adopted out.
=== Our Weekly Adoption Event ===
Time: Saturdays, 9am-11am
Location: Davis Community Church
Address: 412 C Street, Davis, CA (Across from the Farmer's market)
Any questions you may have can be answered by a project coordinator at our booth.
Note: The adoption event is held outdoors. We may skip a weekend if it is raining or too cold for the kittens to be outside. Please call or email us the day before to make sure we'll be there, especially if you're coming from far away! Thank you for your understanding.
Adoption fee is $60 for an adult cat and includes spay/neuter surgery, deworming, FeLV (and FIV) testing, vaccines (FVRCP and rabies), and microchip with registration.
The adoption fee actually does not fully cover the cost of raising kittens which also includes formula, food, medications, bottles, carriers, and other supplies. We rely on other Feline Medicine Club fundraisers to help defray these additional costs.
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.
