When deemed socially and medically ready, our rescued cats and kittens are placed up for adoption. An adoption donation is required to help Pink Paws cover the medical costs incurred in caring for these cats and kittens. This donation is discussed with potential adopters during the adoption process.

- Identifying a cat that you are interested in;

As an example, it may be arranged publicly in one of the pet stores we show our cats at or in a foster member’s home. Our settings are all safe and secure for the adopter, Pink Paws team member, and the pet.
