Our Adoption Process:

We hope to have most of our animals listed soon. Please let us know if you are looking for a specific breed or color etc. We have a lot of refuge cats that aren't listed yet. Always make pet adoption your first option! Applications are provided in order to help us pick the pet most suitable for you. Call or email for applications. All adoptions are by contract to ensure our animals go to a safe and loving home. Fees range from $25.00 to $100.00 depending on vaccinations or if the animal has been altered. If an animal has received extensive medical care past initial vaccines, health checks, and spay/neuter surgery the amount will be listed. We only ask for reimbursement of our costs in order to keep costs low and adoptions high.

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.
