Adult cats come with many perks: They are much less work than kittens, their personalities are fully developed so finding a match for your lifestyle is easier. PLUS, after a longer stay in foster care, adult cats are very grateful to have a home and a family. Everyone wants to adopt the cute kittens. Give one of our adult cats the best Christmas present ever – a forever home!

Our adoption fee ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the medical attention they need, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated (and receive a rabies vaccination if age appropriate). Our fee also includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance.
