HOW TO ADOPT

ADOPTION APPLICATION

Thank you for your interest in adopting from Stray Cat Alliance. Below please find a description of our process and some answers to frequently asked questions.

Adoption Process

1. Review our adoptable cats.There are different ways to search among our cats and kittens, including age, color, sex, and name.

2. If you are interested in any of our cats or kittens, the first step is to fill out our Adoption Application, so we can get to know you better. If you’re not sure which cat/kitten(s) you’re interested in, please fill out our application anyway, and we will find you the perfect match when we speak to you.

3. Once we receive your application, you will be contacted by our Adoptions Team. We know you may have more questions about the specific cats you’re interested in, and we’ll be happy to answer your questions when we talk to you on the phone.

We also have cats at our two partner cat cafes – CatCafe Lounge in West Los Angeles, and Cat Therapy in Santa Barbara. You can make a reservation on their websites, or we can arrange a meeting by appointment once you have filled-out our application and spoken to our Team.

Important Information

  • The minimum age to adopt from Stray Cat Alliance is 21 years old.
  • Most of our kittens need to be adopted in pairs or into a home where there already is another cat or dog to be their friend. Many of our adult cats also enjoy other cats or dogs, so we would like for them to have a companion in their new home.
  • We do have cats that would be happy as an “only cat” and can provide a list to you.
  • If the description of the cat you’re interested in says s/he needs to be adopted with another specific cat, please understand that means they love each other very much and we will not split them up.
  • It’s possible that the cats you apply for get adopted before we have a chance to talk to you. The good news is your application is good for any of our cats. We promise that we will not run out of amazing cats and kittens.
  • Our adoption fee is $150 per cat. The cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated with FVRCP, microchipped, tested for FeLV, dewormed, and flea treated.
  • The adoption fee is waived for cats 10+ years old or who have special medical needs.
  • We do not have any hypo-allergenic cats. All of our cats are rescues and are not breed specific.

If you have any questions, please email adoptions@straycatalliance.org.
