My story

My name is Zoe. I am a pretty black kitty with gorgeous, glowing, golden eyes. I am a bit shy, but I am making strides at becoming more confident. Change can be a lot for me at first, and I am looking for an understanding family that will give me the time and support I need to blossom into my full potential. If you have patience and love in your heart for a shy kitty, then please make an appointment to come meet me today!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Prior to adoption, all of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on all shots (including deworming, distemper, all yearly inoculations, and rabies if old enough), microchipped, and tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia.

Cat Guardians rescues stray and abandoned cats who might otherwise not have a chance at adoption. We seek permanent, loving homes for our cat and kittens where they can live a long, happy and healthy life. For this reason we must ask you to read, understand and follow the following policies and then answer the following questions on the adoption application.

When You Have Decided to Adopt

After you have made the decision to add a new pet to your household, there are a few more steps to complete the process.

Important: All members of the household must come in prior to adoption.

Important: We do not usually do same-day adoptions. so you and your family can discuss the adoption and make sure that it is right for you, and also allow us time to complete all necessary paperwork.

You must fill out an adoption application form. This form is reviewed by an adoption counselor who will contact you in response to your application.

The shelter requires proof that you are able to have a pet in your home. If you are a renter, we must see a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have pets. If you are a homeowner, we need proof that you are currently making mortgage payments.

Adoption fees help to cover the cost of first vaccinations, spaying/neutering, feline leukemia-AIDS tests, and worming (which may cost up to $400 per cat!). Adoption fees are $120 for adult cats and $150 for kittens.

When you come to take your new friend home, you must bring a sturdy carrier. We cannot let any cat or kitten leave the shelter unless it is safely secured. The cat carrier can serve several different purposes for your new friend. It can be its personal bed, and it can be used when taking the cat to the vet or other trips outside the house. Your cat will be much safer and happier in a carrier.

Once approved as an adoptive parent/family, you will be given an appointment to pick up your new feline friend on a day we are not open to the public. Please allow 45 minutes for the adoption process.

More about this shelter

Cat Guardians has rescued over 2000 cats and kittens from the streets where they have been given the medical and emotional help they need so that can be adopted.

Cat Guardians does not employ euthanasia, except in extreme circumstances in which medical conditions are such that prolonging a cat's life would no longer be humane. Due to its no-kill policy, Cat Guardians is usually filled to its legal capacity of feline residents. Today, some 50 cats and a rotating population of kittens reside at Cat Guardians shelter.

Some of the cats who have not been adopted due to their advanced age or chronic medical problems are assured of a loving, permanent home at Cat Guardians.

The daily activities of the shelter are feeding the cats, administering medication, cleaning the litter boxes and the shelter, are performed with the help of volunteers and funded through supporters like you.
