Available Cats



It is the policy of our organization to require a financial donation* when adopting a cat/kitten. This donation only partially covers the cost of feeding, vaccinations, spay/neuter, flea treatments and other medical attention covered by the rescue's funds.   
*Please check with your accountant concerning adoption donations and tax deduction eligibility.

We use the following guidelines:

  • Kittens 6 months and younger: $110.00 or adopt a pair for $200.00
  • Kittens 7 months to 3 years old: $100.00
  • Domestic cats 4 to 6 years old: $75.00
  • Siamese cats under 1 year old: $125.00
  • Siamese cats 1 to 3 years old: $110.00
  • Siamese cats 4 years and older: $100.00
  • Domestic senior cats (7 years and older): $50.00
  • Application for Adoption

Note: Kittens are placed with various foster families until adoption.  Kittens are a lifelong commitment and the decision to adopt should be a thoughtful one. 

All animals placed are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested.  Additional care is provided as needed to ensure the health of each animal. To the best of our knowledge, all the animals we show at our adoption events are in good health. 

We have invested a great deal in our "rescues", and want you and your new kitty to have a long lasting relationship together. We offer an exchange policy if a cat does not adjust at your home after a reasonable time period.  The owner may return a cat to us for any reason. 

All of our cats and kittens are fostered in individual volunteer fosters homes.  To inquire about a specific kitty or to request that a cat be brought to our Saturday adoptions at the La Canada PETCO to meet you, please email us directly.

Are you thinking of adopting a kitty and joining the Happy Strays community of adopting familes? Visit our Happy Strays and Happy Tales (link in title above) and read letter and view photos from some of our wonderful kitties who found equally wonderful new homes!

Have you brought a Happy Strays kitty home?  We'd love to hear how you're all doing and post your stories to our adoption blog!  Send your notes and photos to us by email, or stop by PETCO during our Saturday adoption events with your kitty for a free nail trim!
