Adoption process:

Our multi-step process ensures that our cats are placed in an appropriate forever home – a suitable match for each family and an environment in which the animal can thrive and grow. Each application is reviewed on an individual basis.

Requirements for Approval

  1. Applicants must provide proof of home ownership or written consent from the landlord to own a pet.
