The Cat House on the Kings is California's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center. Our mission is to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a safe, happy and healthy home for unwanted cats and kittens in a unique, no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering; and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
The Cat House on the Kings selects adoptive homes at its sole discretion based on the needs and best interests of the cat. Therefore The Cat House on the Kings reserves the right to deny any adoption application.
The adopter must be at least 18 years old.
We adopt on a first-come, first-served basis. To hold a specific cat you must make a deposit of the adoption fee by calling (559) 638-0490 and then make an appointment to pick up the cat. The deposit is refundable if you ultimately decide not to adopt the cat.
We screen prospective adopters before they come to our facility.
We require cats and kittens to be kept indoors at all times.
We discourage declawing (and can advise on alternatives).
We do not adopt small kittens to families with young children.
The adopter must pick up the cat in person from The Cat House on the Kings sanctuary or off-site Adoption Center. If you live outside Central California, you will have to travel to our adoption center in Central California where the cat is being cared for. To ensure the safety of the cats in our care, we will neither transport or ship them nor will we allow a third party to pick up the cat on the adopter's behalf. We may make an exception on a case-by-case basis for an immediate member of the adopter's family. If this requirement is not acceptable to you, please do not submit an application!
If you choose to travel from out of the area to The Cat House on the Kings and adopt from us, you must agree to accept 100% of the financial responsibility for the care of the cat(s) and that if something does not work out with the cat(s), you will be responsible for returning the cat(s) to us safely at your expense. (We do not have the ability or financial resources to travel out of the area to retrieve our cats.) If this requirement is not acceptable to you, please do not submit an application!
We require both a photo ID & proof of current address (e.g. driver's license or recent utility bill).
We ask that people who rent show proof that pets are allowed.
