Thank you for considering adoption.
CLAWS is home to cats of all colors, personalities, ages and abilities all looking for their forever homes.
You can now meet our cats at the new
CLAWS Adoption Center
There are also cats in foster homes, and at the local business graciously hosting them.
Our goal is to ensure we place each cat into a loving home where they will live out their entire life. Because of this, we take our adoption process very seriously.
Search for your new best friend in our CAT-alogue , at Petfinder, or at Adopt-A-Pet. Also, take time to learn about, and search, our programs for Senior Cats, Furr-ever Residents, Special Needs Cats, and Working Barn Cats.
We understand not everyone is in a position to give a forever home to one of our cats but anyone can make a difference in the lives of our cats through donations, volunteering, or by virtually adopting through sponsorship
Our kitties look forward to meeting you!!
Make sure you are ready for your new family member.
(Read the preadoption checklist and access our resource page)
Attend an adoption event, visit kitties in residence at one of our business partners, or call the shelter to schedule a meeting with a foster kitty or shelter resident.

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)
