Adoption Policy

During our work doing Trap Neuter Return (TNR) for feral and stray cats in Oakland we often find cats that are friendly, sometimes abandoned house pets, or cats that have become accustomed to humans, or young cats or kittens that are able to become pets with love and care. When we find cats that are friendly (or that we are able to tame) we then work to find them loving forever homes. 

We are a foster-based rescue, which means we do not have a physical location and all our foster cats and kittens are in foster homes.

In order to adopt please email us about the cat or kitten you are interested in adopting and we can answer any questions for you. We will send you our adoption application and agreement to fill out. If it seems like it might be a good fit, you will be connected with the foster for an in-person or virtual meet and greet with the cat or kitten you are interested in. We will then set up a video call with an adoption counselor to do a walkthrough of your home to ensure that it is a suitable space for a cat or kitten to live and to answer any questions. If it all seems like a good fit we can proceed with the adoption!

We also ask for info about any current pets, if you have dogs they need to be friendly with cats for the cats safety. We can give you lots of tips to ensure a successful integration of a new cat or kitten into your home!

Cats can live 12-20 years and pets are for life, so it is important that our adopters are committed to caring for the cats or kittens they adopt from us for their lifetime. If at any point it is not working out for any reason at all, please let us know, and we can help with rehoming.
