    Questions about adoption:

    Do you have cats or kittens for sale or offer cats for adoption?

    There are cats and kittens available for adoption from the shelter.

    How much do you charge to adopt a cat?

    The adoption fees are different depending on the shelter. Please see contact us for more information.

    Why do you charge a fee for adoption?

    The fee covers the Home's costs including desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, worming, vet check and behavioural exam which works out to be considerably less than buying a cat from a breeder or pet shop. We offer discounts on all adoptions on completion of the Pet Licence Test.

    What are your adoption hours?

    The hours are different depending on the location of the shelter. Please see our contact details and opening hours.

    What's involved in the adoption process?

    The first step in the adoption process is undertaking the Pet Licence Test which will give you an indication of what you need to do to be ready to welcome a cat into your life. After taking a look at the feline candidates on the website and contacting your real estate agent if you are renting, you can come into the shelter and visit the cats in person. If there is a particular cat that has really won your heart you can phone ahead and place a tentative hold on him or her while you make your way to the shelter. At the Cat Adoptions Facility, a Cat Attendant will walk you through to meet and interact with the cats. You can take some time to think about your pending adoption after meeting the cats. Once you've chosen a cat (or the cat has chosen you), you will be guided into the adoptions office together with your new cat where you will fill in an adoption agreement and questionnaire and complete the Pet Licence Test if you haven't already done so. You will then have a consultation with an Adoptions Attendant who will give you more specific information about caring for your cat based on their history. The last step is payment of the adoption fee. Once you have decided which cat you will be adopting the process takes around one hour. Completing the Pet Licence Test at home will shorten the amount of time you will spend on paperwork during your adoption.

    I've seen a cat I'm interested in on the website. What do i do next?

    We are happy to assist you if you have your heart set on a particular pet.  Please call our adoption team for more information on 9329 2755 with the Animal ID handy

    Are your cats ready to take home straight away?

    Yes, all cats and kittens up for adoption are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed.

    Can you tell me if a cat put up for adoption is a surrendered cat or a stray?

    We can't tell you about specific cats, but most of our cats for adoption are strays.

    Is there a discount if I adopt 2 cats at once?

    The adoption fee covers the costs of preparing each cat for adoption so further discounts cannot apply.

    I am currently renting and would like to adopt. What should I do?

    It's always best to seek landlord permission if you intend on adopting a pet. For more information please read the Tenants Union of Victoria renting with pets factsheet.

    What's the green tag I receive when adopting a pet? (QLD only)

    The green tag identifies the pet as part of the National Pet Register. It's not the same as a microchip or a council tag.

    Take our Pet Licence test and get a $30 discount on dog adoption fees or $15 on your cat adoption fee while learning about responsible pet ownership.
