Adoption



When tame cats and kittens are first rescued, they are placed in foster homes. Here they are nurtured and receive the care they need as they prepare to enter the adoption process. There are many different ways to begin the process of adopting adopt a wonderful cat from Forgotten Felines!

Adoption Process

Once you have chosen and met a cat that you wish to adopt, the adoption process begins. We will work with you to make sure that there is the correct match between adopter and pet. We want to make sure that you are committed to and able to provide a life-long home for the cat you are interested in.

Adoption Application

The next step in the adoption process is to complete an Adoption Application. This is available from our Petco adoption coordinator or you can download an Adoption Application. Things you will need to be prepared to include are the name and number of your current veterinarian, and the name and number of your landlord if applicable. Once an application is approved, we will arrange the next steps which include pick up or delivery of your chosen new family member(s). Because we take the adoption process very seriously, we rarely do same-day adoptions. We want to ensure that you and your new cat experience as little stress as possible, so feel free to call us if you have any questions or need any help. You can also visit our Resources page for online help about your new pet.

Adoption Cost

Our adoption fees are competitive. The standard cost is $75 for cats under 6 months and $35 for cats over 6 months of age. However this can vary throughout the year and can depend on other factors such as demand, the cat’s age, or special circumstances. The adoption fees go directly to improving the welfare of our cats and help offset the cost of medical care, food, shelter, and supplies for those cats we rescue.

About Our Cats

  • All of our cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and tested for the FIV/FeLV viruses before they are eligible for adoption.
  • They also must be older than 2 months or 2 pounds before being adopted.
  • No cats will be adopted without meeting you and your family in person.
