Adoption Process

  • All cats have been tested, spay/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and treated for fleas. There is a $100 adoption fee per cat and $150 adoption fee for a pair of kittens. These fees help defray the medical costs and care of the cat. The fee is non-refundable.

  • Vet references are required, along with an approved adoption application and, periodically, a home visit. All cats must remain indoors and cannot be declawed.

  • If you are interested in adopting, please complete an application (see below). 

  • Given that there are many wonderful rescues and shelters throughout the country, we prefer to limit our adoptions to the greater Philadelphia area.  

  • Learn more about how to meet our available cats and kittens.


  • We generally require that kittens be adopted in pairs. We will, however, consider adopting a solo kitten to a family that already has a young companion animal (cat or small dog) in the home for the kitten to play with.

  • We do not adopt out kittens until they are spayed or neutered.

  • Kittens are generally available for adoption at 8 - 12 weeks.

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.  Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way."      - Martin Luther King, Jr.
