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.
As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on support from volunteers and the public. We could not continue our life-saving work without such help. All donations are tax deductible.
Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue Tax ID # is ID # 86-1164211
Review our pets on line and make arrangements to visit them.
We ask potential adopters to fill out an adoption application prior to or at the time you meet our adoptees and to sign an agreement which outlines our adoption policies:
We ask adopters not to declaw cats adopted from us. We educate adopters of the detriment of declawing, and discuss humane alternatives to declawing. When an adopter is interested in having only a declawed pet, we direct them to cats who have already undergone the procedure.
♥Indoor - Outdoor
Since cats live much longer, safer lives indoors, we prefer to adopt to indoor homes. However, we realize that there are also good indoor-outdoor homes and we are willing to discuss this as an option.
We do not adopt out any cat or kitten until they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested for FIV and FeLV.
♥Renting with Cats
We require written permission or a contact number to make sure your landlord allows cats, and if required, pay the pet deposit in advance of adopting.
♥ Adopters must be at least 18 years of age.
♥Cats as gifts
Cats will not be adopted to a second party, or as a gift. The care of a pet is a lifelong commitment and a very personal choice. We have a gift certificate we can make available which allows the person to come and pick out his or her own cat as a gift from the giver.
Because we have a feral trap and release program we are often looking to place cats that are not suited for pets. These cats have typically never had an association with people. These cats would otherwise have no place to live out their lives. We require that you agree to provide shelter, food and water and take care of any medical needs that may arise. In return they will earn your respect by their great mousing skills....can you say, ‘have a mice day’!

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.
