About Capital Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of private households who rescue and find homes for cats and kittens abandoned at several shelters, most of which have the high kill rate typical of large metropolitan areas. We also do street rescue of placeable cats and kittens and cooperate with local feral rescuers as time and space permit. We do it to save lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show for adoption at the Petco at 625 H St. NE. Our events are held most Saturdays (and the occasional Sunday) from 12-3pm. Check our website ( or Facebook page ( for updates on upcoming events!

Our Adoption Process...

Prospective adopters fill in an application form at the adoption event. We do landlord and veterinary reference checks before proceeding to the next stage, which involves a home visit where the cat or kitten will be living. The cat or kitten is spayed or neutered before placement; cost is included in the adoption fee (currently $130). The contract requires that the cat or kitten be indoors-only and that it cannot be declawed. In addition, we do not place single kittens unless the household has another cat or kitten who needs a friend; otherwise it has to be two kittens together.
