The Adoption Process
$85 - Kittens
Your adoption fee ensures that your cat will be
spayed/neutered, wormed, vaccinated, flea-free and
tested for FeLV, FIV and heartworm. We do not
discount cats. The difference in adoption fees is to
give an adult cat the same chances for adoption as a
We care about the welfare of our cats and kittens,
therefore we require an adoption form to be filled out
and approved by a CLAWS representative. We
reserve the right to refuse any applicants. All families
who adopt will be contacted for a follow-up on how
their new cat/kitten is doing and to answer any
questions they might have.
CLAWS consists of all volunteers, we have no paid
employees. We do not keep regular business hours
and visits to the shelter are by appointment only. If
you would like to visit the shelter and see our
adoptable cats, please contact us here. Otherwise
our cats would love to see you at the CLAWS
adoption locations listed to the right!
CLAWS is in need of outdoor homes for cats that are semi-wild,
feral or unadoptable and would be ideal as "barn cats". If you have
a barn, horse stable, shed, warehouse, or any other type of shelter on your property, and are in need of "pest control", consider a
"barn cat". They are wonderful mousers, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference in a cat's life! Barn cats are fiercely loyal if they bond with you and you may just end up with a new best friend! All barn cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for Rabies and Distemper, and ear-tipped for identification. Despite a common misconception, cats can't survive on mice
alone. The owner must agree to provide food, water and shelter for the rest of the cat's life. What will keep them catching mice if they are fed by the owner? Instinct of course! Cats will catch mice regardless of whether or not they are hungry, so please keep your barn cat fed, watered and provide a safe place for them to sleep that is out of the elements. There is no adoption fee for a barn cat, however a donation is greatly appreciated!
