About Our Shelter:

The Cat Association of Topeka (C.A.T.) began its operation in the spring of 1988 and since then, has placed thousands of cats and kittens in loving homes. In July of 2003, the organization moved into its current facility. The new shelter features colorful cage-free rooms with lots of cubby-holes, ramps, ledges, ramps, and steps for cats to play or just escape for a much-needed nap. Secure screened in porches provide views of nature and visits from a neighboring squirrels and birds. Our quarantine room has its own air system, providing a safe environment for recovering or ill cats.

Along with C.A.T.'s adoption program, every opportunity is used to educate the public on the need for sterlization and the importance of vaccinations, good nutrition and proper pet care. As we continue to grow we hope to establish a broad-based volunteer coalition, and increase the number of adoptions to caring homes. We are also working towards a coalition of other animal care organizations in our community, and increasing awareness in the community. We have a great many kind and generous supporters who help us. It's a great place to be a cat lover, or a cat!

Our Adoption Process:

Anyone interested in adopting a cat or kitten is asked to fill out an application. This enables us to assist them in selecting a cat or kitten best suited to their wants and lifestyle. It also helps us avoid placing a cat in a situation where it may become stressed or endangered. The shelter will accept the return of any cat (adopted from C.A.T.) for any reason. We do reserve the right to deny adoption. Adoption fees are $60 for males and $65 for females, and senior cats are half price. All cats go home with a 4lb. bag of Science Diet cat food and the new owners get a 10% discount in our Catty Shack Retail shop for 30 days.

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.
