By adopting a cat from the Animal Welfare Society you can help stamp out cat overpopulation because all pets from the AWS are spayed or neutered before going to their new homes. We have a wide variety of wonderful cats to choose from at the shelter and at our many Satellite Adoption Centers.
Your new family member will have had his or her vaccines, feline leukemia testing, spay or neuter surgery, a post-adoption free health exam certificate, plus a collar and a tag. We encourage you to bring a sturdy animal carrier with you to bring your pet home in. We have cardboard animal carriers that can be purchased for $6. If you are interested in adopting, please print and fill out an adoption questionnaire or stop by the shelter to do so.
Kittens 8 weeks to 4 months $215.00
Kittens 5 months to 7 months are $140
Juvenile Cats 8 months to 11 months are $100.00
Adult Cats 1 year to 7 1/2 years are $75.00
Mature Cats 8 years and over OR that have been at the shelter for more than 2 weeks are $10
Semi-socialized cats and kittens are $35.00
When you adopt a kitten there is NO FEE to adopt the mama, too!
Adoptions begin at 11am. However, on days when highly sought-after pets (particularly puppies) first become available, parties may arrive prior to this time and begin forming a line. Interested adopters arriving early can enter through the door labeled “Incoming Animals & Reclaims” after 8 am to inquire about being assigned a number for when visits and adoptions begin at 11 am.
Adoption questionnaires should be completed before interacting with individual animals.
A commitment to a particular pet does not have to be made within the 15-minute time frame, though after 15 minutes, the next in line will have access to available animals, and so on. All adoptions are on a first come, first served.
Please be prepared to wait 15 minutes for every person/family in front of you. Usually applicants have a particular animal in mind before coming to the shelter, which can speed the process. We do our best to keep things moving quickly, and we ask for your patience while those ahead of you make their choices and complete their adoptions.
When you first enter the adoption center, on the wall to the right, you will see a white board. This will give you an idea of where each available dog is in the adoption process.
