Adoption Procedures and Requirements
The CatWorks was established in order to rescue, rehabilitate, and
re-home stray, orphaned, abused, and abandoned animals. To that end, we have
very strict adoption policies that must be followed, and no exceptions will
be made under any circumstance.
- If you are interested in adopting any of our young kittens, please
be advised that you may have to wait up to six weeks before you can
bring them home. Our veterinarian requires that all kittens must have 2
distemper vaccines 3 weeks apart and weigh at least two pounds before
they can be spayed or neutered.
- If you choose a cat or kitten that you are interested in at one of
our adoption days, we must first approve your application for adoption.
No cat or kitten may leave an adoption day without approval from a board

FIV/FELV. We will be verifying this information with your veterinarian.
