How to Adopt!

If you have found a furry companion at “The Cat’s Closet Cat Lounge” and you are interested in adoption you may visit the Shelter during operating hours and fill out an application for your animal. The volunteers and staff will assist you in the process of your application and discuss the adoption counseling and paperwork! 

The Animal Shelter is open for visitations Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 12-4 and Saturday, Sunday from 12-3. 

During your visit to the shelter, you will be able to view all available animals and visit/adopt animals that do not already have applications. Applications are processed in order that they are received by our adoption staff. 

If you are unable to visit or require a discussion with a staff member prior to adopting, consider filling out the adoption form below.
