Our Mission

Cat People of Oahu is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to help people help cats. We provide information, education, and resources for individuals who own or care for pet, feral, and free-roaming cats.

As a rescue that operates exclusively via a network of fosters, every animal adopted from Cat People of Oahu opens up foster space for another animal in need. Our organization runs 100% on donations and volunteers.

Adoption Policy

If an individual is interested in a cat or kitten listed, they will complete the first three pages of the Cat People of Oahu (CPO) Adoption Application and submit to Please review the fourth page but do not complete it at this time.

A representative from CPO will forward the completed application to the cat's current foster parents. The foster parent will then be in contact with the prospective adopter to set up a time to meet the cat. If the foster parent opts to offer the cat to the interested party and the interested party decides to adopt, then the CPO Adoption Contract will be reviewed and signed by both parties and the adoption fee will be paid directly to the foster.

Please note that there may be a short waiting period between the meet and greet and a finalized adoption and that filling out an application and meeting a cat does not guarantee that you will be selected to adopt a specific cat.

Cats and kittens listed are in foster homes across the island. The location of a specific animal will be disclosed once you inquire, but please be prepared to possibly travel to meet your cat or kitten of interest.

Adoption fees range from $25-$100 per cat and are determined by the foster.
