Adoption can be tough!

So many to choose from...

So many needy kitties...

How do you know what kitty is right for you and your family? 

Do you have time for a kitten?  Do you have patience for a shy kitty?  Do you have pets already in the home?  Do you need a 'life of the party'?  Need a sidekick or a reading partner?  Never had a pet before and need some guidance?  Maybe you just aren't seeing the 'right one' yet? 

We are trying out a Blind Date Adoption program!  Send us an email (kittycolony@hotmail.com) titled 'Blind Date Adoption' and tell us about yourself, your family, your other pets, what you want in a kitty, and about your busy (or not busy) lifestyle and we will MATCH a kitty to YOU!

We know our kitties best, and we have many who are not listed in our online adoption sites.  They are great kitties, but it can be tough to find them forever homes. 

Adoption is a big decision!  Take the pressure off yourself!  Leave it to the experts!  We can get to know you, and help you choose the right addition to your home.

For this program, if you accept your referral for a kitty we match you with, you will take them home on a trial run. This trial period will last 2-4 weeks for you to bond and make sure everything is as it should be. You would be fostering the kitty with the intention of adopting at the end of the trial period.  If something should happen to go wrong, the kitty will come back to us!  Our kitties always have a home with us here at the rescue.  Their foster families love them and while we want them to get adopted, we will always, always, ALWAYS take them back.

Prior to taking a kitty home, an adoption application must be completed either in person when you meet the kitty we refer to you, or online at kittycolony.com

All cat from our rescue are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and regularly treated with flea and worm preventatives.  Our adoption fees range by age and will be due in half when you take the kitty home, and the other half when you finalize the adoption 2-4 weeks later.

$100 for a kitten under a year

$160 for two kittens under a year

$75 for a cat 1-2 years old

$50 for a cat over 3 years

About Kitty Colony - Jenkintown

About Our Rescue Group...

We seek to rescue the abandoned, the unwanted, the unloved - the cats that need us.

- To care for and provide a loving, cage free home for cats awaiting adoption.

- To reduce euthanasia in overcrowded shelters by taking in cats that need more TLC.

- To educate the public about proper and responsible care of domestic companion animals.

Kitty Colony was founded in Lancaster County, PA.

A cat lover since childhood, I was heartbroken at the lack of care given to the barn cats on the farm where I was residing. I coudn't understand the philosophy of many of the farmers - "You don't feed Mousers" How can a cat chase mice if weak and emaciated from lack of proper nutrition or water? A healthy cat chases mice for sport - and will catch more than its unfed counterparts.
We started putting out food and water for the few cats that wandered through and were soon pulled into rescue work as the cats began to colonize and multiply on the property. The first few litters of kittens we cared for ourselves - We were able to tame and adopt out several and family pitched in to help foster the kittens when we couldn't.
As the colony continued to grow, we enlisted the help of PAWS Volunteers to help with the trapping and spaying/neutering of the cats, and several members assisted in fostering and socializing the kittens. Several of our socialized cats and kittens were adopted through a PAWS Petsmart Adoption center, others were incorporated into the Catworks Inc. or adopted out privately by PAWS volunteers. I nicknamed my little family of cats "Kitty Colony" and put together a personal Kodak webpage to share my pictures with friends and to help advertise and adopt the socialized cats and kittens there on the farm and fostered by my family.
When we moved from Lancaster County - I couldn't leave my "Barn Babies" - the cats that had been born, and had grown up in the barn - So I took them with me. These cats are still semi feral, or very feral (wild!) and most of them will probably remain so for the rest of thier lives. In that case, I will care for them and love them as much as they will allow me to - but they are now indoor-only and are living the good life - fat and lazy and happy!
Here in Jenkintown "Kitty Colony" has become a local rescue group complete with our own adoption program and TNR assistance for those who need it.
I also began volunteering and fostering this year for Cats With No Name - a mobile low cost spay/neuter program - and we hope to launch a Cats with No Name adoption program in the near future.
So now along with my "Barn Babies" are now many fosters, orphaned kittens, rescued strays, ferals and adoptables- Living in harmony with each other while waiting for thier forever families to find them.
