Habitat for Cats has very flexible adoption hours. Arrange for an appointment during the daytime, after 5:00PM or on the weekend. Our volunteers are ready to work with you to find a compatible pet. We pride ourselves on finding the right "match" for you and our cats.
Habitat For Cats is a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer organization involved in a variety of efforts to care for homeless cats. We operate a network of foster homes in New Bedford, Dartmouth, Westport, Fall River and other local towns, to temporarily house and care for our adoptable cats. This method allows the cat to integrate in a home environment and allows the foster parent to assess the cat's personality and temperament. Our cats may be in foster homes with children, other cats, birds, or dogs. By knowing the cat's behavior, we can help you and our cats make compatible adoption choices to last a lifetime.
All of our cats were rescued from the "streets". They tend to be abandoned, former, house cats or cats that have joined up with a feral cat colony. Many of the kittens we rescue are born in yards, garages, sheds, etc. They are brought into foster care and quickly socialized. Many of the kittens are born to former housecats that were never spayed.

An adoption application and a signed contract is required. All our cats and kittens are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, tested for Feline Leukemia (Felv), rabies & distemper vaccinated (tests & vaccinations are age dependent). Habitat does requires an adoption fee to help offset the veterinary costs.
