Submit a Cat Adoption Questionnaire

Thank you for your interest in adopting a cat or kitten from PAWS! Meet and Greet Appointments are available for Approved Applicants. Processing generally takes no more than 1-2 days. As part of the process we contact your personal references, veterinarian, and landlord or homeowners' association, (if applicable). If you contact your references, landlord, and/or vet it will speed up the process and approval.


Please Note: We do not adopt out of state. You must be 21 + years of age and have the approval of all adults in the home to be approved. Looking to adopt Barn Cats? Fill out our short application here.

Seniors for Seniors Program:


We believe that everyone should experience the enjoyment of a pet.  Pets bring us love, joy and companionship at any age. They inspire us each and every day, positively impact our health and make us into better people. PAWS’ Seniors for Seniors Program is open to all folks age 75 and over who are looking forward to the joys of pet ownership. 


  • Senior cats are age 10 years and over

  • Adoption counselors will help match approved adopters who are 75+ with senior cats

  • A younger contingency person is required to be on file.

         This is someone who would care for your cat if you are no longer able to

  • Your adoption fee will be waived - but we always appreciate donations!

  • Our senior cats come fully vetted (up to date vaccinations, exam, and senior profile bloodwork)

         Other procedures, like dental work, are done as needed prior to adoption.

PAWS has been helping animals in need since 1962. Our dedicated staff and volunteers provide shelter, medical attention, and love to the dogs and cats in our care. We work hard to find the right pet for your home and the right home for every pet. Challenge accepted! We rescued and placed for more than 900 cats and dogs last year!
