Cats Available for Adoption
If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten, please fill out the short adoption application.*
Your application will go directly to the email of our CEO and Adoption Coordinator, Melissa (Missy) Gurnett and will be reviewed by her as soon as possible.
All of our animals are vet checked and given our standard medical treatments before adoption:
Microchips, spay or neuter surgeries, FIV/FeLV testing, age-appropriate vaccines, and parasite treatments.
A condition of our adopting to you is that your adopted animal will live indoors, and that you will never declaw it.
Happy Jack Cats, Inc. considers an animal's best interests first when homing. That means:
- We screen all potential adoptive families.
- We reserve the right to deny applications.
- Our adoptions are NOT awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis.
- We do not hold animals. The animal is not yours until the adoption fee has been paid.
