Adopt a New Family Member
Choosing the Right Pet for Your Family
Please make picking a cat a family event - we want everyone in the family to be happy with the decision so we can make the best match. A counselor will then interview you to see what type of cat you are looking for and help you meet our residents. Spend as much time as you like getting to know the cats!
Once you find your cat you will fill out an application. If you rent, we will need a copy of your lease with pet requirements, your landlord’s phone number, as well as a receipt for your paid pet deposit. If this information can not be verified on the adoption day, we can make an appointment after the information is verified to pick up your cat.
The adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75. All cats available for adoption are current on age appropriate vaccines, have been spayed or neutered, have tested negative for Feline Aids and Feline Leukemia, have a microchip and come with a 14 day health certificate and exam from Oso Creek Animal Hospital, 30 days of pet insurance for ShelterCare and an adopter bag of Hill’sScience Diet. This is a $250-$350 value! We currently take cash, Visa and Mastercard for the adoption fee. Sorry, checks are not accepted for adoption fees. *Check the website regularly as we often have specials on adoption fees!
Keep your Kitty Safe on the Way Home
Please be sure to bring a pet carrier with you to take your cat home. Cats are not allowed to leave the shelter unless in a pet carrier. We have cardboard carriers for purchase for $10 and a variety of regular carries as well (prices vary).
Volunteers and staff spend spend a lot of time taking care of and loving all of the kitties in our shelter and want them to live long, healthy lives with their new families. Because of the dangers cats are exposed to outside (including being attacked by dogs, other wild animals, disease and parasite exposure, poisons, and people that are just cruel to animals, etc) we only adopt our cats to be house cats. If you want a cat as an outdoor pet, despite the dangers, we suggest you try Animal Control (2626 Holly) or inquire about the adoption policies of the other local shelters (PeeWee’s, PALS, and the Humane Society).
Protecting your Current Pets
All current household pets should be current on vaccinations before you bring home any new pet.
You can fill out an application at the shelter, at Petsmart, or you can download one here and bring the completed application with you when you are ready to adopt!
