Adoption Process

Preparing for Adoption

So you’re ready to bring home a new feline family member! Yay! Let us help you find the purr-fect match through our adoption process:

  1. Fill out our online adoption application
  2. Talk with one of our Adoption Match Makers. They’ll clarify any questions about the application and discuss the cats we have available for adoption who might be great for the type of cat you’d like to have. It might not be your first choice but we’ll help it be the best choice!
  3. Meet a cat (or two!). The Match Makers will set up an appointment to visit the shelter to meet your cat-match in person.

Though our goal is always to find a furever home for the adoptable cats in our care, it’s important to know that at ANY TIME in this process, even after adopting, you can decide it’s not what you expected or not working out for you. Sometimes it happens!

Adopted cats can always come back to ASAP for any reason. Our adoption team of counselors and match makers chat with every adopter and family to determine your readiness for bringing a cat into your family. Is everyone on board? Do you have time and space for a cat in your life? Do you have a plan for emergencies and veterinary care? All of these questions should be answered amongst your family.

ASAP is here to help!
