What a deal compared to paying the average costs of doing all of this yourself! This is the responsible and affordable way to adopt. Every adoption opens a place of safety and comfort for another homeless kitty.

Adoption donations cover only a fraction of the full costs in caring for and preparing these cats for adoption, so there is no profit for us. This is purely a labor of love.

We occasionally run specials, so please visit this site often to see if we are offering a reduced adoption rate.

Extra Info

Be First In Line

Even before they are ready for adoption, you can reserve young kittens or cats. When they are old enough and have been spayed/neutered, they can come home with you.

Sometimes a mama kitty is also available for reservation. She stays in the foster home, caring for her kittens until they are weaned. Then, mama is ready for her forever home, too.

We ask for a $50 deposit for each reserved cat. The deposit is held until the adoption is complete. Reservations are subject to foster home approval. Foster homes accepting reservations will provide an estimated adoption date.

Watch for kittens listed as “Reservation available” in our Kitten Catalog.


We keep reserved cats and kittens listed because sometimes these adoptions are not finalized. If you want a kitty who’s already reserved, keep watch. It may become available again.

Housemates and siblings are often posted together, but unless their bios state otherwise, they can be adopted separately.

You can help even more by adopting two kittens. Ten Reasons Why Two Kittens Are Better Than One.

Spay/Neuter Vouchers

Please join us in our mission to prevent unwanted kittens. We can help with the costs of having a cat spayed or neutered.
