OUR ADOPTION PROCESS

Our adoption process is fast and we do our best to make sure we find you and the cat a purrfect match. We offer lifetime support with the cat and while we hope you two stay together forever, we are always here to take 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?

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.

Adoption FAQ

Can I meet a cat before submitting an application?2018-10-02T12:33:23+00:00

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+00:00

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+00:00

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+00:00

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.
