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.
Chicago Cat Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Chicago Cat Rescue is unique in the fact that all of our animals available for adoption are currently living in foster homes. Foster homes make a great scenario for you to meet & mingle with your potential furry friend(s). A casual, home-like setting brings out the best in our animals for adoption and helps you get a true sense of the personality and characteristics of the animal in consideration. All of our foster homes provide a flexible schedule to accommodate appointments with potential adopters
Our adoption process is as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Call or email us to learn more about the cat you are interested in - we, of course, will have questions for you. Our conversations are a great way for us to get to know each other and ensure you will be a great match for the cat of interest (and that they will be a great match for you!).
2. We will set up a convenient time for you to meet the cat of interest. All of our cats are in foster homes in Chicago - so you will be meeting with the foster mom/dad, a representative from Chicago Cat Rescue, as well as the lucky cat(s)!
3. After the meeting, you will be asked to fill out an adoption application. A representative from Chicago Cat Rescue will process your application (usually within 2-3 business days), and if all goes well your new cat(s) will be ready to come home!
When you adopt from Chicago Cat Rescue, you not only gain the unconditional love of a cat(s), you also gain the perpetual support from a group of caring people who are committed to you and your new companion's health & happiness.
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.
