You’ll apply online in advance to request an appointment.

This popular kitten adoption event attracts hundreds of hopeful adopters, and we don’t have enough space for everyone who wants to attend.

Applying in advance helps reduce crowding, speeds up event check-in, and sets you up for a more comfortable, smoother experience on adoption day!

Adopters also must be comfortable with our adoption policies; we’ll contact you if we have any questions.

On Saturday, June 22, any adopter with an appointment will come to CAT’s shelter in Sherwood to meet kittens for adoption in person!

During your appointment, our staff and volunteers will show you around to see the kittens available at the time of your visit. Once you narrow down your selection to one or two kittens, you’ll have the chance to hold them and interact with them more to see if it’s a love connection!

If you decide to adopt at the event, you’ll attend an adoption counseling session to go over the details of your adoption, complete paperwork, and pay your adoption fee. You can also shop our retail store for great deals on the supplies your new kitten needs!

Most kittens will be ready to go home with you after your adoption is finalized, so please plan accordingly.

You should expect to be at the shelter for about 1-2 hours to meet kittens and finalize your adoption.

Kitten adoption fees are $225. CAT offers a $20 discount off your total adoption fee when you adopt two kitties at the same time.

The adoption fee includes: medical exam, spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, flea treatment and deworming, FeLV testing, microchip and registration, certificate for a post-adoption medical exam from a participating veterinary clinic, sample bag of Purina Pro Plan food, kitten care handbook, and post-adoption support from CAT’s adoption counselors — a $700 value!

These kittens will not appear on CAT’s website before the event. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, we’ll be posting photos of some of kittens that are expected to be at the event — but we can’t guarantee their availability. Things change quickly with kittens. A kitten could get sick or we might realize they’re too shy for a big event. Plus, we’re still getting in more kittens each day!

One thing we can say for sure: You will get to see a lot of cute kittens at the event!

You’ll need to be available to take your kitten home on the same day as the event. There are no holds offered during Kitten Palooza.

This event helps kitties move out of the shelter/foster homes so that we can take in more needy animals. If you’re not available to take your adopted kitten home on June 22, please wait and visit when you’re ready. We will have lots more kitties looking for homes later this summer!

We totally get it. Kittens are adorable, and this event is a ton of fun. But…

Appointments for Kitten Palooza are limited, and we want to help as many people and kittens find love as possible! If you’re not planning to adopt at the event, please visit us on another day.

We’re open for walk-ins without without an appointment during our regular open hours any other time! During the summer months you’ll almost always find some cute kittens — and wonderful adult cats — in our shelter.

Thanks for understanding!

Absolutely! Adopters who want to see a lot of kittens in one visit may choose to attend Kitten Palooza. But whenever you’re ready to take a cat or kitten home, you can stop by the shelter without an appointment during our regular open hours. This time of year we often have kittens — and many lovely adult cats — ready for adoption.
