The Stray Connection

Knoxville, TN

Adoption Policy

Potential adopters are required to complete our application before adoption. You may request an application emailing

Our adoption fee is $125 for cats less than 6 months old, and $75 for cats more than 6 months old. Adoption fees for exotic, unusual, or pure bred cats (e.g. Himalayans, Siamese, Main Coon cats) may be higher. The fee includes testing for feline leukemia and aids, the series of distemper vaccines, the rabies vaccines, wormings, advantage so they are flea free when you take them home, a veterinary exam, and the spay or neuter. Microchipping is available for an additional $45. The adoption fee is waived for qualifying adopters interested in one of our sponsored cats.

At the time of adoption, adopters must sign a contract indicating their willingness to obtain all remaining vaccinations, treatments, and spay or neuter. If a placement doesn't work out (e.g., a family member discovers he/she is allergic), the animal is returned to the Stray Connection and re-adopted.

The Stray Connection WILL adopt pets out of state if the adopter is willing to come to Knoxville to pick up the animal.
