Cats Available for Adoption

Below are cats in our care currently ready for forever homes.

Considerations when adopting include:

  • Finding the right match for you and the cat(s) – think about your home environment and lifestyle and the cat’s personality and needs.
  • When pairing up cats – consider age, personality, activity level and gender (same gender cats are often a better match whereas the opposite is usually true for dogs).
  • Most cats need feline companionship – this applies to adult cats and virtually all kittens. Humans and dogs aren’t a substitute for cats that need feline buddies.

We ONLY adopt to residents of the Washington metropolitan area, including Washington, D.C., and part of Northern Virginia and Maryland.
