    Questions about adoption:

    Do you sell or offer cats for adoption?

    Yes. We offer cats for adoption and we charge to cover the running costs of 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 so much for adoption?

    The charge covers our costs including desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, worming, vet check and behavioural exam. The price is very cheap compared to buying a cat from a breeder or pet shop. We don't make a lot of money on adoptions, and what we do make goes back into the organisation.

    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?

    You come in and have a look at the cats available for adoption. An animal attendant will walk you through, and you get a chance to interact with the cat. Once you've chosen a cat you go through into the vet clinic, fill in an adoption agreement and questionnaire, then come back into the office and pay. The whole process takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour.

    I've seen a cat I'm interested in on the website. Can you hold it for me?

    Yes, we'll hold an animal for up to 24 hours.

    Are your cats ready to take home straight away?

    Yes, they're all 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?

    No. We still have to perform the same procedures on each cat, and the adoption price covers our costs.

    Why don't you have more cats up for adoption?

    Because our adoption rate is high – cats go in and out quickly. Adoption numbers are getting higher each year, but demand is still higher than we can keep up with.

    What's the green tag I receive when adopting a pet?

    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.
