At Adopt A Cat, we know that it takes more than just a roof over a cats head to consider them saved and ready for a new home.

Many of our cats were previously strays, or have just left their homes for an extended period of time for what is likely the first time in their lives.

We want all of our residents to receive love, comfort, and specialized time that works with their comfort level. Whether that means lap time with lots of pets, playing with wand toys from a distance, or even just staying safely inside of their cage while listening to someone talk about their day, every cat can start or continue the socialization process somewhere.

We are looking for volunteers who are comfortable with being around and handling cats who can come in to the shelter and spend time with all of our kitties to help them flourish into the happy and healthy cats we know that they can be. This will also help them to get ready for adoption and entering their new homes.

(We'll absolutely understand if there is some bribing with treats and catnip that occurs during the process.)

About Adopt A Cat

Location:

17319 BAMWOOD DR, HOUSTON, TX 77090, US

Mission Statement

Adopt A Cat's mission is to provide shelter and sanctuary to homeless cats and kittens in the greater Houston area until forever homes are found. We provide education about the importance of spay/neuter and appropriate cat care. All cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, combo tested, dewormed, and flea treated before they are adopted, as well as receiving necessary medical care to improve and maintain their quality of life so they can find comfort and happiness in our home until they are placed in a new one.

Description

Adopt A Cat has been in existence for 30 years to provide shelter and sanctuary to homeless cats and kittens in the greater Houston area. We house most of our residents in a free-roaming setting within the shelter, not cages. Cats can be adopted on site and we also take our cats to the adoption centers in local pet stores. We have a no-kill policy, so we have a mix of old-timers and new residents who can all stay with us as long as it takes to find the perfect home for them, or if we are their forever home, then they can rest easy with us until they cross the rainbow bridge.
