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.
Adoption approval requires that an application be completed. Two personal references and a vet reference are required (three personal references if you don't have a vet) - these will be checked! We also require that a contract be signed - this states that if you are unhappy with your cat that you will return him/her to us, ect. Once you contact us, the application and the contract will be emailed to you. Once we get the application back and the references check out, and the applicant passes an interview, the adopter is approved!!
We do not ship or provide any transportation. We only adopt to residents of the state of Texas and the immediate surrounding states.
Our adoption donation for persian, himalayan, ragdoll and Maine Coon breeds are as follows: adult cat is $150, a kitten is $175 to $275 - depending on age, gender, and breed of kitten. Other breeds may have differing adoption donation amounts, depending on the rarity of the breed (for example exotic shorthair adults are $200 and up, rex breeds are $250 and up). Declawed cats, add $25 to adoption donation. WE ONLY ACCEPT ADOPTION DONATIONS BY CREDIT CARD (VIA PAYPAL) OR CASH - WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHECKS!
If you want us to hold a cat for you, we require a that a non-refundable deposit be made (refundable only if for some reason the cat becomes unadoptable). The deposit is half of the total adoption donation amount. The deposit will apply towards the adoption donation.
Except for the persian, himalayan, and exotic shorthair cats listed on this site, South Texas Persian Rescue cannot guarantee the parentage or breed of cats on this site (unless otherwise noted that the cat is "purebreed").
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.
