We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves


If you are interested in adopting a cat, please click on the link above to complete our online adoption application.  When we have received the application, the adoption process will then proceed with a phone interview with an Adoption Counselor who will explain the adoption process including relevant adoption fees.  Once your application is approved, a volunteer from the Adoption Team will contact you and work diligently to schedule a tour of our facility.  Our Adoption Team is made up of volunteers who are not at the shelter full time, but we try our best to schedule appointments at the potential adopters' convenience.
Adoption Fees
Kittens under 1 year  $195 / $350 for 2
Adult cats 1 - 7 years old $150 / $250 for 2
Senior Cats 8 years + $100

Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations and micro chip

The Kitten Room

Kittens that have been taken into the shelter have a special room just for them.  Volunteers are very happy to spend hours feeding. playing with and socializing the little ones until they are ready for adoption.
