Magi-Cat Adoption Network

Who We Are
Magi-Cat Adoption Network is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer animal rescue licensed by the state of Georgia. We are a no-kill rescue striving to reduce the numbers of unwanted animals euthanized in county animal control shelters. Animals entering our rescue are housed in foster care until adopted. We specialize in cat adoptions but can provide referrals to other types of rescues as appropriate.
Our name "Magi-Cat" is in honor of our origins in animal rescue work, and the very first cat we took in. In 1998, when two of our group's future founders had just entered the world of rescue as volunteers for a rescue group in New York City, their first foster cat 's name was Magic. Magic had been thrown out of a Manhattan high-rise by an abusive family, surviving yet sustaining injuries to the jaw and palate that caused him to sneeze violently after eating. However, despite his treatment at the hands of humans, he had retained a sweet disposition and love of human companionship. He adored nothing more than to play "fetch" with a kitchen sponge, his favorite toy. Magic left a lasting impression on our lives and reminded us of the debt that humans owe to the animals we have domesticated. Our goal is twofold: to rescue as many animals as possible from neglect, abuse, and unnecessary euthanasia; and to place these animals into lifetime homes where they will never again encounter these dangers. With each successful adoption we conduct, we trust that Magic is still happily living with the family who adopted him, stealing the kitchen sponge from the sink.
Adopting a friend
As a small network of foster homes and adoption counselors, we do not have a shelter facility and do not currently hold regular adoption days. However, if you are interested in adopting one of our available animals, please email us for more information and an adoption application. If your application is approved, we will make arrangements for you to meet the cat you are interested in. Adoption is contingent upon an interview with an adoption counselor, signing of our adoption contract, and completion of a two-week trial period to ensure a good fit between adopter and adoptee. Our adoption fee of $125 covers spaying/neutering, feline leukemia and FIV testing, distemper vaccinations, rabies vaccination if old enough, heartworm prevention, flea prevention, and microchipping.
