About Our Shelter:

Catís Cradle Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, no-kill shelter located in Fargo, ND. We opened on January 1, 2012. Our mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world, one cat at time. Catís Cradle is a colony-based shelter with 7 colony rooms and an isolation/medical room with seven private units (plus room for additional temporary units). We utilize foster homes for kittens less than 8 or 10 weeks old and for cats needing extra medical care or socialization/attention. Most of our residents are last-chance pound rescues. We typically have between 60 and 90 cats in care (it varies with need), and adopt 30-40 each month (hopefully more!). Catís Cradle is part of new, multi-disciplinary effort (three cooperating rescues, staff from three pounds, animal control officers, veterinarians, and community supporters) to reduce the number of adoptable cats being killed in area pounds.

Come Meet our Pets:

9 9th Street South, Fargo, ND
Open houses Tuesdays 4-7pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. If these times don't work for you, please call us at 701-356-7877 and we will arrange a private visit. Please be aware that there is usually at least a 24 hour delay between filling out an application and bringing a cat home, as we need time to check references.

Our Adoption Process:

Cat's Cradle requires an application, site visit, and interview. If a prospective adopter rents their home, we will call the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on the property. Our adoption counselors will work hard to find the best match for the both family and the shelter cat. Our 2012 adoption fee is $109. This includes: intake health exam & FEL/FIV screening; 3 doses of roundworm de-wormer (and other parasite screening/treatment when necessary); age-appropriate vaccinations (rabies and distemper, including booster shots for kittens); spay or neuter surgery; microchip; and any other medical treatment recommended by the attending or consulting veterinarian(s) (for injury, illness, infection, etc). We allow a three week trial period to make sure that the cat and his/her new family are a good match, and if things don't work out...we always want our cats back! We prefer to adopt in our own area because A) we insist on meeting prospective families and B) we will not risk shipping our cats. We reserve the right to decline to adopt any cat into a situation that we feel will not meet his/her needs.

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.
