Adopt a Cat

Scroll down to see all of our adoptable cats, or Click Here to see them on Petfinder.

So you’re ready to find your puuurfect friend– what do you do next?

First, decide what sort of personality a cat needs that would best suit you and your family. Sure, most of us are partial to a certain breed or color of cat, but their individual personality is the most important factor when deciding if a cat will be right for you. Would a playful, crazy kitten be a good addition to your family, or a snuggly lap cat? Do you want a cat who is very social and likes to be wherever you are, or would a more independent “cool” cat be more to your liking? Remember, you may have this cat for 15 years or more!

Kitten vs. Cat

It is an indisputable fact that kittens are adorable, but they do need more attention than older cats. Kittens need to play and socialize– it is how they learn to be cats! Be prepared to spend time each day playing with your kitten and don’t be surprised if she gets into mischief– it’s kind of a kitten thing. Adult cats, on the other hand, have already developed their cat-ness and are secure in who they are. While some adults will play, many are more content just curling up next to you and being close. Adult cats are often overlooked at shelters, but those potential adopters are missing out on a great thing!

Where can I see your adoptable cats, and can I meet them?

You can see all of our adoptable kittens and cats on the link below– if you see one you like, just click on his photo to read about him. You’re also welcome to come to the shelter to meet our cats in person any time from 10am – 2pm Tuesday through Saturday, and from 6pm – 8pm on Friday.

Adopted cats must leave the shelter in a carrier. Please bring an animal carrier with you so they can be safely transported home with you. Thank you!

I'm Bosley, and I'm SO glad to be at AAR and on the road to finding my forever home! My first family didn't treat me very well and threw me out of the house when they moved. I wasn't used to being outside and got roughed up a bit. Thankfully the neighbors saw what happened and worked to find a no-kill shelter to take me. The weren't able to keep me, but they cared for me and kept me safe until I was able to come to AAR. I'm a sweet guy and ready to find a family of my own who understands that adopting an animal is a serious commitment -- we are part of your family and not something you just throw away!

Kendra was found with her three kittens in a warehouse right before it was to be fumigated. Thankfully they were found and removed before the fumigation started! Kendra has had a rough go, living on the streets and fending for herself and her kittens, but she is extremely loving and adores attention. She only has one eye, but that does not bother one bit! She knows she is beautiful no matter what!

Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful! I'm Sandy, and yes, I am a glamour girl. I'm also curious about everything around me. The only thing I love more than investigating is to have my ears and neck scratched. I was found as a stray, roaming around a neighborhood looking for help. Thankfully, a nice man rescued me, had me spayed and vaccinated, and now I'm at AAR ready for adoption! I'm very loving, but I also have a bit of a sassy side as well. I think I'd like a low key household the best, one without a lot of other pets or young children. I prefer to be the center of your world!

From Walter's foster mom: "On Friday evening, March 17, I stopped at the feral colony to feed the cats. When leaving, I saw a little kitty between the gas pumps and the ditch. When I walked over there to him, he ran into the street. Fortunately, no cars were around. I got down on my knees and started calling him and he ran back over to me and I scooped him up and put him in my car. I drove home with him on my lap. I took him the next day to our mobile clinic and had him tested (negative) and all his shots done. The following Tuesday, I had him neutered, micro chipped and his ears cleaned. Walter uses his litter box, is very neat and loves to eat. I bought him a "tower" toy that has balls and he loves to hit those balls and watch them go round and round. Also, likes to lay on your lap and be petted." Walter can be a bit shy at first and takes a little time to warm up to new surrounding. He will do best with an adopter who is patient and understanding and who will allow Walter to adjust to his new home on his own time. It won't take long!
