The KATO Foundation originated as a New Mexico state wide vehicle to provide humane care for cats in a no-kill environment while waiting for adoption. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, donations to KATO Foundation's Kitty City may be tax deductible.
Kitty City was conceived as a cage less, safe, indoor-outdoor environment for our cats. We are a no-kill facility where every feline guest is examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Starting May of 2010 all Kitty City cats that are taken to our vet to be spayed or neutered are also micro chipped.
Kitty City residents enjoy a full range of indoor and outdoor play areas to explore. This also allows for visitors to interact with our cats rather than viewing them in a cage, and it allows the visitors to gain a better idea of each cat's personality. We feel this interaction does reduce the number of returned adoptions.

Come Meet Our Pets...
The best way to get acquainted with us is to stop by for a visit! Make it a family outing...or come alone for our "Kitty Zen" feeling.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8a.m. to 5p.m., and Saturday 8a.m. to 12p.m. Visits can be made during off hours by appointment only.
If you're visiting Alamogordo, be sure to visit Petsense the humane pet store located at 805 N. White Sands Blvd., where you can meet more of our adoptable cats.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fees are as follows: Adult cats are $45 Kittens under 6 months of age are $25 + a $50 spay neuter deposit that is refunded with proof from your vet that your cat has been neutered or spayed (no earlier than 5 months of age and no later than 6 months of age). Adoption applications are available on our website. Submitting an application does not guarantee adoption approval. Potential adopters must agree to keep their adopted pet indoors only, not to declaw their Kitty City NM cat and to return the cat to Kitty City NM if the cat does not work out in their home.
