Cat Adoption :: Search by color, age, breed, location and more.

Hi! My name is Chellbear and I'm a rare orange female. Did you know most orange tabbies are male? Which makes me extra special. I'm kind of a finicky girl - I'm picking about the food I eat and like a quiet home. You see, I was abused and neglected before I came to Give Me Shelter so I'm a sensitive to loud noises and sudden movements. I'm looking for a cat savvy adopter who will understand my cat body lingo and know when I've had enough. That said, I really love attention on my terms of course and human companionship. Are you up for the challenge? Adopt me!

ADOPTED! Max and Millie are two bonded cats looking for a forever home together.

Because many of these cats come with baggage, Rescue is not always for everyone. We're looking for adopters (Rescuers if you will) who have the patience, understanding and compassion to work through issues that may arise. We're here to help you. If you need a cat within a few days, if you aren't interested in dealing with any issues that may arise, if you must have a specific age and look, Rescue may not be the best solution for you.

Adoptable Cats in Your Local Shelter | ASPCA

The Cat Adoption Profile helps us get to know you and what you are looking for in a cat companion. Complete your now to get started! Even though living in a cat rescue situation isn't ideal, most rescues (and some animal shelters) try to make the cats more adjustable and adoptable. Sometimes they will expose the animals in their care to other animals in order to help socialize them, making them more playful and able to live with all types of pets. Also, many rescue organizations use foster homes. Foster homes are terrific because adoptable pets get to be socialized with children and other pets while in their temporary foster home, giving them essential experience and training before they go to their new adopted homes. This makes the transition to your home easier and smoother for both the adopted pet and you, the guardian. Whether in a foster home, a boarding situation, or a shelter, many cats available for adoption are already housebroken, litterbox trained and ready to go! This is one of the most positive aspects of pet adoption. Foster parents, have dedicated their time and energy to making pets more adoptable. Remember, you can find so many different kinds of cats in shelters, that it is worth starting there when you are looking for a Hemingway.

Looking to add some furry love to your household

If you're considering a Hemingway for adoption, you probably have a good idea of what you want. You likely have lifestyle requirements and personality wishes for your Hemingway cat. For instance, maybe you need to find a Hemingway who loves dogs, or one who likes to be around other cats. This is where adopting an adult pet is such a benefit! When you adopt an adult cat from a rescue group or animal shelter, what you see is what you get. Adult cat personalities are already formed, and you'll be able to spot the characteristics you're looking for much easier than if you buy a Hemingway kitten. Rescue organizations, and some shelters that provide pet adoption counseling are able to assess the personality of each cat, and will carefully match you up with the right cat to fit your needs. Adult pets are a known quantity.
