1. Take a Look at our Adoptable Pets
We post photos and information on our Featured Cats page. We update it daily, but if you have questions we're happy to answer them!
2. Visit our adoption events and remote adoption sites
You can visit some of our adoptable pets during our Adoption Events. You can also visit the Timonium or Halethorpe Petco anytime to visit our adoptable pets that reside in that store's adoption center. To schedule a supervised meet & greet please submit an adoption application and let us know your availability.
3. Submit Your Adoption Application
We require an approved application before arranging a meet-and-greet with any pet. You can fill out a paper application at any of our Petco locations (Timonium & Halethorpe). Paper applications are collected weekly from the stores, or you can scan it and email directly to us. For the fastest response you can submit your application via our online form. Application processing takes roughly 3-5 business days. The availability of your references, vet, landlord, etc. often determine how quickly your application is processed. Our adoption counselors work hard to make sure that every pet is matched with the best forever family. Please note, we do not adopt kittens before 12 weeks of age in order to allow for proper development and socialization.
4. Pay The Adoption Fee
Every adoptable pet has an adoption fee. We rely on adoption fees and donations to continue our rescue mission. We are a registered 501(c)3. As such, donations over the adoption fee are tax deductible and always appreciated!! All of our adoptable cats receive a vet exam, age-appropriate vaccines, deworming, spay/neuter surgery, feline leukemia and fiv testing, and a lifetime microchip. In addition, any further vet care needed to ensure the health and happiness of our cats is provided.
Cat Adoption Fees:
Adult Cat (over 1 year old) - $80.00
Kittens (12 wks to 1 year old) - $115 (one) / $170 (two)
Microchip (with lifetime registration) - $20 (mandatory, per pet)
5. Welcome Your New Pet Into Your Home
The adoption counselor will provide information to you regarding introducing a new pet into your home. We strongly recommend providing a single room to allow your new pet to settle into and get used to your home. We will provide reading materials to help you and your new pet adjust to your home. While every pet is different, generally 2 to 4 weeks is needed for your new pet to really adjust and make your home their home. Sometimes longer if you have other pets. Please remember this is a big adjustment, be patient!
