Cats & Kittens

Welcome to our Cat Center!

Here you can find all you need to know about bringing a cat or kitten into your family. All of our important forms and resources are on this page as well. If you should have any questions, please contact us at CATTERY@DAWS.ORG

Cat Adoption Process

Our goal is to find you the perfect cat for your home. We recommend that you consider what age, size and temperament would best suit your lifestyle and family. Also, decide if you are ready to take on the daily responsibilities and financial obligations of pet ownership; then, check out our Cat Gallery to see our lovable, adoptable cats!

Please note:  Kittens, under the age of four months, are not kept at the shelter. They are housed in foster care off premise.  Please see our Cat Gallery for available kittens or contact our kitten foster program at kittens@daws.org.

OUR ADOPTION PROTOCOL HAS CHANGED!

If you are interested in adopting a cat, please download and fill out our adoption application and email it to CATTERY@DAWS.ORG.  An Adoption Counselor will contact you to discuss and review the application. Please be patient. We are making love matches so it can take us a few days to process your application details. Upon pre-approval, you may make an appointment to come to the Shelter to meet the cats.

Finalize the adoption

Our adoption fee for cats (over 6 months of age) is $150. This fee includes a veterinary exam, vaccinations, and spay/neuter.

Our adoption fee for kittens (under 6 months of age) is $200. This fee includes a veterinary exam, age appropriate vaccinations up to the date of adoption and spay/neuter.
