Our adoption fees are $150 for cats over 10 years, $200 per adult cat, $225 per kitten (6 months and younger).**
(Adoption fees are non-refundable)
**Please note we recommend that all kittens under the age of 6 months have a companion. To learn more about the importance of kitten socialization please click here. All adoptions of kittens are evaluated on a case by case basis to determine the best match for their needs.
All cats must leave the shelter in an appropriate cat carrier or kennel, and be transported to their home via car rather than public transportation.
As part of the adoption process, our staff will discuss with you:
- The cat’s health and veterinary care history
- What to expect during your cat’s adjustment to a new home
- Transitioning to new food and litter (if you choose to do so)
- Introducing your cat to other pets (if applicable)
PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST BE 21 TO ADOPT FROM GIFFORD CAT SHELTER.
