We take pride in being able to help you find your purrfect match. All of our cats are rescued, ranging from abandoned to urgent animal welfare circumstances. We offer lifetime support with the cat and while we hope you two stay together forever, we are always here to accept our cats back for life, if circumstances change.

Please take a moment to read and understand our process before proceeding to the adoption form beneath. If you’ve yet to view the kitties currently looking for a forever home, you can do so here.

Can’t adopt but would still like to help?

Adoption FAQ

If the cat that you wish to adopt is currently with a foster home, we must receive and process your application first. If the cat is currently at one of our adoption centres, then, by all means, you are free to visit the cat.

How long does it take to process my application?2018-10-03T11:10:15-07:00

We respect the time you’ve taken to fill it out so we try to do it as quickly as possible. However, we are all volunteers so we appreciate your patience with us. Sometimes we receive several applications on the same pets and many applications come in when we post information on new pets.

Typically we respond in as short as 24 hours, but during busy times can go up to 5 days.

If I adopt from you and cannot keep or care for the cat, do you take the cat back?2018-10-03T11:12:12-07:00

While we always hope this will be a lifelong commitment we want to be sure if it does not work out the cats come back to us and we accept our cats back for life.

We will first try and help resolve any issues you may be having to try and keep you two together.

Why do you ask for our Vet details?2018-10-02T12:25:08-07:00

It is important to have a health care plan arranged before you bring your pet home. A vet check can be important in determining whether or not an applicant is a responsible pet owner.


Ready to adopt a kitten or cat?

Let’s start the application process by submitting the Adoption form below.

Adoption Form

Please complete all fields fully and accurately to submit the adoption form.

The information you send is private and will not be provided to anyone else. If you have any questions or difficulties, you can email us at info@cattherapyandrescue.com

Potential adopters for cats located at Catoro Cafe must meet the cats in person prior to submitting an application. Applicants who have not met the cat in person at Catoro Cafe will not be reviewed.
We Prioritize each application based on the suitability for the cat(s) up for adoption, not by the order in which they are received. While there are many amazing homes we do need to look at the best potential for long-term placement. We should review your application within one week.
If you are contacted by email regarding an adoption application, please respond to the emails within 48 hours. If we do not receive a response we will move on to our next most suitable candidate. Please keep an eye on your junk mail in case our response goes there.
Please note that any rude and/or abusive behaviour will not be tolerated. Our volunteers work long hours to screen applications and conduct interviews and the rescue reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who does not respect this. While we understand having your adoption application refused can be disheartening, keep all communication civil and respectful.
Please only book your adoption interview if you are 100% committed to adopting the cat you applied for as we want our cats to find their families in a timely manner.
Thank you for choosing to support rescue and have a great day!
