Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We try to serve as many communties as possible but since we are from East Providence, the East Bay area is our main focus. All lives are precious to us and we try not to turn down any animal, from any community, so long as we have space. Consider becoming a foster home and help us help these poor babies.
We also spend our money on the animals and are not interested in fattening our bank balances as some well known agencies continue to do.

About Our Rescue Group:

Cat Adoption Team Services, (CATS) is a private, non profit, humane rescue group. Donations to CATS can be made through your work place going to the United Way. Just be sure to put Cat Adoption Team Services as the recipient of your donation.
Our number one goal is to promote the spaying and neutering of cats and kittens to help eliminate the over population problem and to help stem the needless killing of so many unwanted, unplanned, helpless cats and kittens. We do endorse the spaying and neutering of all companion animals. We strive to educate the general public of the importance of spay/neuter. We help facilitate the adoption of as many cats and kittens, as we can, to permanent, responsible, loving homes. We totally support the TNR concept and the benefits of TNR.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are at the Providence Petco, located at 585 N. Main Street, Providence, RI every Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm and you are welcome to come by and see all the cats and kittens that are looking for new 'Forever Homes'. Hard copy medical records accompany each cat and kitten on adoption day as each cat or kitten is completely vetted prior to their adoption.

You may obtain an online application by logging on to CatAdoptionRI.org or by emailing catadoptionteam@aol.com. All of the cats and kittens are adopted out with Rhode Island State mandated proof of spay or neuter. In order to take your new cat or kitten home with you, there must be an approved application prior to adoption day. Application approval is usually within 24-48 hours.

The adoption donation is $150.00 each after an approved application. This is not a sale, but an adoption donation. The policy is that all of our cats and kittens will be adopted out spayed or neutered, tested for feline aids/leukemia, and have all age appropriate shots. There will not be any adoption of any cat or kitten that has not been spayed or neutered first. There will be no exceptions. This means that there is less out of pocket costs for people who adopt a cat or kitten from us and you will be in 100% COMPLIANCE WITH THE SPAY/NEUTER LAW TOO!

This is a real bargain as locally a spay is $270.00, plus shots and a $50.00 office visit. A neuter is usually $150.00, plus the $50.00 office visit and extra for shots. Many vets charge $48.50 to test for feline aids and luke, so as you can see, we are very reasonable!!

We feed only the best food as we believe that a healthy immune system is the cornerstone to a healthy cat or kitten.

We are in constant need of money and volunteers to do foster care as well as meet and greet the potential adopters at PETCO.

Our Adoption Process:

There is an application process and for each kitten or cat adopted there will be a $150.00 adoption donation to help defray our costs. Our adoption donation is still very competive as anyone who has been to the vets recently will attest to.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
