Adoption Process

WE ARE OPEN AGAIN!
Please make a reservation if you would like to visit with us!
Call ahead to make sure we have the cat you are interested in at the Cafe before visiting if you want to meet someone specific.
*Applying to adopt before you plan your visit helps us direct you to the best cat for your family and allows you the opportunity to adopt the day you come to visit!

All applicants must complete the online application in its entirety. Please do not leave information out as this can delay your application process.

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.
  2. Applicants must be at least 18 years old. Any applicant under 25 or above 65 is required to have a co-applicant between 30-60 willing to commit to care for the animal until its death if they are unable to.
  3. Applicants must have vet records showing ALL current and previous cats and dogs were given regular exams and vaccinations every year for dogs and at least three years for cats. All current and previous cats and dogs must have been spayed or neutered unless they are AKC/CFA registered show animals.
  4. Our preferential adoption area is within a 1 hour drive from the Southern Chester County Area, but we do accept applications within a 2 hour drive.
  5. Kittens under the age of 6 months are to be adopted in pairs or to a home with other cats. Due to the amount of care and supervision tiny kittens need, we do not adopt young kittens to homes with young children or those without cat owning experience. Most of our adults are 2 years old or younger and would make great pets for families or first time owners!

 

Keep in mind after you are approved that we carry many of the items you will need for your new cat!  Shop with us and help support the rescue!

We do not adopt cats as “gifts”. All parties involved in an adoption must be made aware they are being gifted with an adoption and then they may come in to pick the cat they want. Please call to talk to a representative about obtaining an “adoption gift certificate”.
