My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

This is Smudge, a semi-feral female who got her name for an obvious reason! Smudge is one of 10 outdoor cats left behind when their owner went into the hospital and never returned home. 

Smudge was extremely shy when she first came into foster care, but time has worked wonders. Smudge will now stay put on a favorite cat tree or come within a foot or two of her foster mom when canned food and treats are being served. She is completely compatible with all the other cats, and is anxious to find a permanent home with one or more of her long term buddies.

Smudge and her feline friends lived in a country setting well off a quiet road, with a barn, several sheds and other places which provided excellent shelter. These cats had little exposure to traffic so are looking for similar, traffic-safe situations. Smudge seems sure to excel at rodent control and will happily provide those services in exchange for room and board. 

Smudge is spayed, vaccinated, negative for feline leukemia and FIV and in beautiful, healthy condition. Please consider adopting her and one or more of her buddies to your country property. Maggie and Smudge have a lot in common and would certainly make a wonderful pair.

Adopting from The Cat Shack

The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.

The first step in adoption is to...

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home. Click here to read why kittens are happier with a buddy!

All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract. This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We ask our adopters to fill out a brief application. We seek adopters that will provide a loving home for the life of the pet with proper vet care.

The Cat Shack adoption contract states that the adopter will keep the cat safe, provide vet care and will return the cat to the Cat Shack rescue if the owners find that they can no longer keep their pet.

The Cat Shack adoption fee is $75 and includes FeLV/FIV testing, vaccines, deworming, the spay or neuter plus any other medical issues needed. This often includes dentals and other expensive vet work.

We always have many cats and kittens listed on our website at www.thecatshack.com, plus we have adoption centers where you can meet some of our cats live in the following locations:

More about this rescue

The Cat Shack is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers.

We keep all of our rescued cats until they get adopted and will treat all medical issues identified by our vets. All of our pets are fostered in the homes of volunteers and we utilize our adoption centers in the PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown to help us find homes for our rescued pets.

Our group also has a very active Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program where feral cats are altered and returned to their original location to live out their lives without reproducing.
