About Our Rescue Group:

A Home for Cats is a small, self-funded, 501(c)(3) non- profit rescue organization located in Chattanooga, TN. We are a no-kill rescue, once we commit to taking in an animal, it stays with us until a new home is found. Ours is an all-volunteer organization and the money needed to care for the pets we rescue comes our of our own pockets. Each "Foster Parent" is responsible for the Veterinary and day to day costs of caring for the animal until adopted. Our adoption fees range from $35 - $125 depending on age, breed and Veterinary expense, however this usually does not cover the significant costs involved, which include traveling to pick up a pet in need, providing veterinary care, vaccinations, flea and worm treatment, having it spayed or neutered, FeLV/FIV tested, giving it any training necessary, and helping to socialize, house and feed it. We welcome public dontaions and they are tax deductable. 100% of donated funds go towards the spay/neuter, feeding and housing of our rescued pets.

Our mission is to save as many cats as possible through fostering, socializing, spay/neuter, vaccinations, medical care and adopting them to forever homes. We strive to promote public awareness about the importance of spay/neuter, keeping pets safely indoors and why declawing is inhumane. More info at www.declawing.com . On a limited basis stray and abandoned cats and those rescued from kill shelters are kept uncaged in a home setting until adopted. Because of the interaction in a normal home environment, we are able to acquire insight into the cats' personalities and temperaments. Matching the cat's personality to the needs and expectations of the prospective owner is of primary concern in any adoption. Cats can be seen at portable adoptions and appointments for visiting the cats in the foster homes can be scheduled.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fees range from $35 to $125. The adoption process includes filling out an application and signing a legally binding contract. These are available upon request.

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 dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
