Our Mission

Our mission is to end unnecessary euthanasia at shelters in the NoVA area by rescuing and rehoming kittens, promoting spaying and neutering, and educating on responsible pet ownership.

Adoption Policy

* You must be 18 years of age or older to adopt a kitten.
* A current photo ID (driver’s license or state ID card) is required for adoption.
* All cats and kittens are spayed/neutered prior to being adopted.
* All kittens over four months of age are required to be vaccinated for rabies in Virginia. If you adopt a kitten over four months, Mews & Merlot will have this completed, and send you home with the rabies tag.
* Rescue animals are not always perfect in every way. We do our best to only adopt out healthy, well-socialized animals, but we can only provide information about what we have received, collected, or observed during their stay.
* We do not place one of our cats or kittens with someone who plans to declaw them.
* We only adopt kittens to indoor-only homes. We know cats love fresh air, so we offer lots of other ways for them to get outside time—including leash training and catios.
* To help keep our kittens safe, all kittens will be microchipped prior to adoption.
* If at any time you can no longer care for your kitten, you are required to return him/her to Mews & Merlot.
* Mews & Merlot reserves the right to refuse any adoption for any reason.
