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.
RescueTheCats is a small rescue which closely monitors our foster cats and kittens for any sign of disease or other issues that would affect their adoption. All our fosters have received veterinary care including vaccinations and been tested for FIV and FeLV. At the appropriate age, our foster cats and kittens are spayed or neutered.
RescueTheCats encourages and practices "TNR" which means we "Trap, Neuter and Release" feral cats that are not adoptable. The purpose of TNR is to help reduce the number of homeless cats.
Also, visit our Helpful Links page for links for new cat owners and other kitty links we have found useful over the years.
We require an application form and references from anyone wishing to adopt one of our rescues. We also do a "home visit" to see that the cat is going to a safe environment. We give advice to make the adoption process more positive for the cat you are adopting. Typically, we provide a two week trial period for the cat to live in their new home before making the adoption official to ensure there is a good fit between the cat and the adopter(s).
In finding adoptive homes for our cats and kittens, we try to give our clients an accurate description of their temperament and habits to help them choose the best cat or kitten for their lifestyle.
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.
