Cars for CAT

Cars for CAT


Cars for CAT is an easy way to find a new home for your unwanted car, boat, RV, motorcycle, van, etc. CAT works with Speed’s Supertow to get you the maximum donation amount. The money raised when Speed’s auctions your unwanted vehicle will help CAT care for hundreds of unwanted and homeless cats.

Make a difference with your car donation to CAT.

Remember, responsible cat owners don’t let their cats drive.


CAT accepts donations of cars, trucks, RVs, boats, motorbikes, ATVs, and other vehicles.

To donate your vehicle:

  • Call Speed’s Super Tow at (503) 234-5555 to submit your vehicle information. Please mention you are donating your vehicle to the Cat Adoption Team.
  • Speed’s Super Tow will arrange for the vehicle drop off/pick up (depending on your location), handle all the vehicle donation paperwork with the DMV and state, and arrange for the sale of the donated vehicle at auction.
  • Net proceeds go to CAT on your behalf.
  • CAT will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation.

Tax information on your vehicle donation:

Donations of a car, truck, boat, or any type of vehicle to CAT are tax deductible for all itemizing taxpayers.

When you itemize tax deductions on IRS Schedule A of your 1040 form, you may deduct the selling price up to $500 using only the thank you letter we provide you.

If you donate a car that sells for $500 or more, you may deduct the price for which your car is sold. For tax purposes, you will need IRS form 1098-C Contributions of a Motor Vehicle. CAT will provide this to you along with a thank you letter.

This information is provided as a general understanding of the tax rule but should not be taken as complete tax advice on this topic. Please check or your tax adviser for further information.

The Cat Adoption Team is a 501(c)(3) publicly supported charity. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Cat Adoption Team’s Tax ID# is 20-0773189.
