How To Adopt

We are thrilled that you’re considering adopting a cat through Pet Patrol. 
Please have a look through our adoption procedure below, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

All Cats Are


All cats receive a full check-up and any necessary treatment.

Spayed or Neutered

All cats are spayed or neutered to help control cat over-population.


All cats are vaccinated, including a rabies vaccination if age appropriate.


All cats are microchipped so they can be returned to their families if lost.

Treated for Parasites

All cats are cleared of parasites including mites, ticks, and worms.

Your Adoption Package


You’ll receive a profile detailing your cat’s rescue story and personality.

Health Record

You’ll receive a health record including immunization and microchip information.

Adoption Paperwork

You’ll receive your copy of the signed adoption forms.

Adoption Fees

$250 for One Cat

This adoption fee helps to offset initial veterinary costs. 

$400 for a Bonded Pair

Help control feline population and bring home a pair of BFFs.

Meeting a Cat

By living with the cats, we get to observe their individual personalities and how they get along with new people, children that visit the home, and their interactions with other cats. This helps us to determine if a cat needs a more serene and predictable home, or likes to be in the middle of a busy and active family. We want everyone to be happy, the cat and its new family!

Appointments must be arranged before coming to the main foster home to visit with cats. Please call 519.669.1979 for an interview and to set up an appointment.

Please be patient if you have left a message. A volunteer will return your call shortly, usually within a day.

When you find a cat that you like, and it likes you, it can go home with you that day. Please remember to bring a cat-safe carrier to your adoption appointment.
