We at The Rescue House believe that we can contribute to the welfare of our furry friends by implementing an Adoption Program. Our Adoption Centers are located in retail pet stores whose philosophy agrees with The Rescue House's mission. All prospective adopters must complete an application and interview process.*
All the cats you see in our Adoption Centers are very special. They have been rescued from death, or from a life of hardship and abuse. While the first part of their life whether long or short, has been less than a perfect one, we will do our best to ensure that they will be loved, respected and well cared for, for the rest of their lives. We rescue cats of all sizes, ages, and colors and breeds - we do not discriminate. Every animal deserves a safe, loving home and we are doing all we can to ensure that this happens.

Please note the following about rescued cats and our rescue organization. We ask for your patience in two areas:
If you find a kitty you want to adopt, you will be asked to complete an adoption application and speak with an adoption counselor.* Each rescue organization has their own beliefs and criteria; please try to understand if ours differ from yours. We ask questions out of love and concern for our cats - not out of wanting to be intrusive in your life or disrespectful. Please understand what we are trying to do for these cats and do not take our questions or decisions personally.
If you are selected as an adoptive parent, we will give you a packet containing great information about cat guardianship, health, food, etc., when you take your new “child/children” home. There is an adoption fee to adopt. At the minimum, every cat has already been tested for feline leukemia, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and treated for fleas, and microchipped, so your initial expenses for your cats’ health needs have already been taken care of. All that is left for you to do is to love and cherish your new family member(s) and allow them time to adjust!
* Our Adoption Counselors conduct interviews by phone, within 48 hours of receiving your application from our Adoption Centers. We are ALL volunteers; thank you in advance for your patience.
