Adoption Process

The first step in the adoption process is to complete an Application. Staff will review your application and verify the information upon receiving it. If you rent your home, your landlord will be contacted for approval so it is important to make sure to include your landlord’s name and number on the application.

Adoption fees

Under 1 year old $100
Over 1 year old $75
Over 10 years old $35


Relinquishing a cat requires an appointment with our office staff and is based on availability of space at the shelter. A blood test for FIV and FELV is required. There is a fee for relinquishments. Older and unadoptable cats are subject to the rules of our Immediate Care Program. Please note that the Shelter does not accept feral cats. Call us at 619-561-0361 ext 0 for further information about relinquishment and to schedule an appointment.

Friends of Cats, Inc. is not able to take in stray cats. By law all stray animals MUST be taken to the local Animal Control Agency. This allows owners who may have lost these pets an opportunity to find their cat. Friends of Cats, Inc. works with the local county shelters to take cats from them when they are overcrowded.
