How to adopt
Why is there an adoption fee?
Our adoption fees don’t come close to covering all the costs of caring for the homeless cats that come to us each year. The adoption fees help offset the cost of getting a cat ready for adoption and are much lower than it would cost to obtain them from a veterinarian independently. Generous donations make up the difference and allow us to continue providing vital services and second chances
All of the Cats and Kittens come with the following:
Spayed / Neutered ($50 - $300 value)
Microchipped with registration ($25 - $75 value)
Up-to-date vaccinations ($15 - $75 valus)
Tested for Feline Lukemia and FIV ($20 - $40 value)
