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.
Once you are ready to adopt a cat please see our cats that are currently available and meet them in person. Please be sure if you have not had a cat before you read some of our cat care to be sure you are ready for a 20+ year commitment.
2. Submit Application
Once you have found a cat or two you like and would like to proceed to adopt, please fill out the online form found below. We advise having a backup choice(s) as well.
3. We'll Be In Touch
Once your application has been reviewed we will get back to you with any questions we have or a time to have an in-person interview with a volunteer adoption coordinator. This is usually within a week.
4. Meeting The Cat
You will meet with the adoption coordinator for an in-person interview at the cat’s location. If everything goes well you will get to take the cat home, so please come prepared with a kennel and we accept cash or credit for our adoptions.
Can’t adopt but would still like to help?
Please donate if you are able, as every little truly helps us with the day-to-day costs involved with caring for the kittens and cats.
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.

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?Cat Therapy2018-10-03T11:12:12-07:00
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!
A special thank you to those that generously help support our mission.
