Our Adoption Process
MEET THE CATS
You can learn a lot from our website, but there’s nothing quite like visiting the shelter and meeting the cats for yourself. After all, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. Since we’re a free roaming shelter, you will find cats everywhere you go. Cats are also sorted into rooms based on nutritional needs, medical concerns, and personality. Our population changes frequently, so check back often if you don’t find the perfect cat for you right away.
APPLY TO ADOPT
Once you have found a cat you are interested in you will fill out our adoption application, which is a brief one-page document that will go over your basic information. You can get a head start by completing your adoption application online before heading to the shelter.
BECOME APPROVED AND MEET WITH A COUNSELOR
One of our professional adoption counselors will chat with you to make sure that the cat you’ve chosen will be a perfect fit for your lifestyle. If you rent, we’ll need to contact your landlord to make sure you’re allowed to have a cat. If you own your house, we will verify that the property is in your name. We may also ask questions about your household and previous pets. Please make sure to bring a photo ID with your current address, and if you rent, it can be helpful to bring a copy of your lease with a pet addendum to expedite the process.
TAKE HOME YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND
The entire adoption process usually takes around 45 minutes to an hour. Once you’ve been approved, you can head home with your new cat. All cats adopted from Cat Care Society are spayed/neutered, microchipped, current on vaccines, and will come with a collar, cardboard carrier, and a few toys to get you and your new family member bonding and playing right away.
