Adoptions

We always have cats for adoption at the shop from rescue groups including, Green Street Rescue in Fairmount. We also have regular adoption events where a larger number of pets are available including cats and dogs, and sometimes bunnies. The dates of these adoption events will be announced on our home page. If you are thinking of adding a pet to your life, think adoption first!

Meet Zulu! This handsome gentleman is all about attention, and he will be in your face about it!

Age: Under a year old

Sex: Female

Other pets: Best as an only pet

Meet Natalie! This sweet lady loves people and getting scratched behind the ears. She also enjoys exploring your house for cozy surfaces. Natalie doesn’t enjoy the company of other dogs or cats, so we think she’d do best in a home where she can be a solo pet. Looking for a lanky love bug to join your family?

Meet this new adoptable Nelly!

Age: 2-3 years

This shy sweetheart was tired of living outside and would love nothing more than a permanent home in a quiet household! She loves a comfortable place to nap and would feel right at home in a pile of blankets or your laundry basket. Nelly takes a little bit to adjust to née surroundings, but bonds strongly to “her people” once she fears to know you. She would be a perfect match for an adult or adults looking for a sweet companion. Nelly would be best as an only pet.

Meet Our Adoptables! Olivia – Adopted

Posted on: Tuesday, May 25th, 2021

Age: About 1 year
Sex: Female
Other pets: May get along with calm cats, unsure about dogs

Meet Olivia! This little lady was found outside, but was far too sweet and social to not become someone’s forever friend. She loves to follow her humans around and talk to them while she does so — be careful not to trip! In the store, she loves nothing more than to explore outside of the adoption window and be pet and held by customers. She would be the perfect pet for someone wanting a nonstop play and cuddle companion!

Meet Our Adoptables! ADOPTED! Ross and Casper

Posted on: Friday, May 7th, 2021

Hello!  Meet Casper (white) and Ross (black/white). Aren’t they both just too handsome!  Casper is slightly older than Ross and has the most beautiful silky white fur. He is an expert cuddler, loves belly rubs and being held. Ross is tiny but mighty, a super silly guy and oh so curious. Both are younger cats and engage in hilarious crazy play, chasing each other and rolling around together. While not siblings they are fantastic playmates and are bonded. Since they rely on each other we ask they be adopted together. Both Casper and Ross have mild temperaments and are good with children and other cats. Casper has been diagnosed with stomatitis and will need continued vet care to address this issue. He must be in a home that can help him live comfortably and give him the best care possible.

Both cats are neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  If you are interested in adopting them, fill out an application at www.greenstreetrescue.org

Looking for a buddy to brighten up your winter? Stop in and meet him today!

Fonzi is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  If you are interested in adopting him, fill out an application at www.greenstreetrescue.org

Posted on: Monday, February 22nd, 2021

Meet Lazlo and Nedro. These two sweet tabbies were rescued separately in the Temple University area. They met while in a foster home and quickly became best friends. Nedro has a cloudy eye that could have been from an injury while on the street. He gets around fine but appreciates having his emotional support kitty, Lazlo, at his side. If you are looking for a pair of amazing cats to add to your home – this is the duo for you!
