My story

(Special Adoption Fee) Mamaria is a long-timer with JCAPL and there is no reason why she should not be adopted. She is estimated to have been born in 2018. She was part of a feral colony, having litter after litter of kittens. JCAPL took them in and found homes for her kittens. Mamaria does her own thing, mostly. She loves canned food and is not an over active kitty. She loves to hang out in the cat trees. She can also be flirty and likes a gentle belly rub now and then. She gets along great with other cats. Mamaria is a low-effort cat and would fit right into a low-energy household. While Mamaria's kittens have all been adopted, it is now her turn to shine. Please consider giving this beautiful, sweet girl the loving home she deserves. She has a sponsor, which means she has a special adoption fee.

Are you interested in adopting Mamaria or another JCAPL pet you have seen? You'll need to start by completing an adoption application, available online at our website: There is no obligation to adopt by completing an application, however, we do recommend submitting an application as soon as you find an animal you are interested in. We review applications in the order they are received.

Completed applications can be sent via email to , faxed to 919-300-5524 or delivered in person by visiting us at one of our adoption events on Saturdays at PetSmart in Garner (White Oak Shopping Center).

We will contact you as soon as possible once we receive your application.

Thanks for thinking adoption!

We require an Adoption Application to be completed, interview with potential adopter, sometimes home visits are done and vet references checked when possible. If the potential adopter lives in a rental property, we will need verification from the property owner or management that pets are allowed, how many and what restrictions may apply. An Adoption Agreement and Medical History form are signed. We require a deposit if animal is pending spay or neuter appointment, and monitor follow-up to keeping the appointment.

Go meet their pets

CATS and KITTENS: Our adoptable cats & kittens are at the Luv-A-Pet Centers at PetSmart, White Oak in Garner and in PetSmart Goldsboro).

Cats can be seen during regular store hours by asking a manager or by appointment, with JCAPL. On Saturdays between 10am and 2pm, JCAPL volunteers bring additional cats and kittens to the Luv-A-Pet Center at the Garner location.

We do rotate our cats and kittens regularly so if you see a cat or kitten online, but do not see them at Petsmart, they are most likely taking a break at their foster home. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about the adoption status of specific cat or kitten.

DOGS and PUPPIES can be seen at the PetSmart at White Oak Shopping Center from 10:00 am until 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays every other week, or by appointment with individual foster homes.
