Adoption & Rescue Agencies for Cats

Please be aware that many of these agencies are staffed with volunteers and they put in many hours finding homes for their furry friends, thus they want good, stable homes. You may be asked questions about yourself and your home environment to help them determine a good match for you. You will be offered advice on care and what to expect in accepting the financial costs and responsibilities of cat ownership so please do not be offended and accept the advice and concern for the animal in the spirit that it is given. Also, when you call, you may need to leave your name and a contact number for them to get back to you as manning the phones is a big job and it is not always possible for someone to be available at all times.
