    Questions about adoption:

    Do you sell 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. Can you hold it for me?

    Yes, we'll hold an animal for up to 24 hours while you decide or if you need to visit your potential new cat with other family members.

    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?

    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?

    If you are renting, you will need to provide a rental agreement indicating that you are permitted to keep a pet in your home. This needs to be done prior to adopting. You can seek an agreement directly through your landlord or property manager. 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.
