Kitten Palooza

Kitten Palooza is the kitten adoption event of the year! Plus, join us online for fun activities during Kitten Week from June 18-25, 2022.

about the event

* Kitten Palooza Adoption Event *
June 18 – Applications Open  ||  June 25 – Adoption Day
 
On Saturday, June 25, Cat Adoption Team will host our largest kitten adoption event of the year: Kitten Palooza
 
During this event, we’ll have about 100 kittens for adoption — all in one place!
 

Kitten Palooza is busy, fun, and full of kittens and people! For your safety and comfort, we are offering entrance to the adoption event by appointment only. You’ll need a pre-approved application and appointment to meet and adopt at Kitten Palooza 2022.

Please read the FAQs below for more info on what expect and how to apply.

The link to apply will go live on this page at approx. 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 18. We will review applications in the order they are received.

**Thank you for your interest. All appointments have been booked.
We are no longer accepting applications for this event.**

Although we are booked for this event, CAT will have hundreds more kittens available for adoption over the summer months. Please visit us another day soon!

The adoption day event will be held in person by appointment only on Saturday, June 25 at CAT’s main shelter:

Cat Adoption Team
14175 SW Galbreath Drive
Sherwood, Oregon 97140

Think of it like a concert ticket. A popular band is playing and there are only so many seats available. Tickets go on sale at a certain time, and you rush online to get one. 

Well, Kitten Palooza is kind of like that!

This popular event attracts hundreds of hopeful adopters, but we won’t have enough appointments for everyone who wants to attend. Applying in advance will help reduce crowding, speed up check-in, and set you up for a smoother experience on adoption day!

The link to apply and request an appointment will go live on this page (catadoptionteam.org/palooza) at approx. 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 18. Some browsers will not automatically update when we post the link. Try clearing your browser cache or press Ctrl-Shift-R to “hard refresh” the page.

We’ll review applications in the order they are received. Once your application is approved*, we’ll send you a link to schedule your appointment for the event day (June 25). Pre-approved adopters will then come to CAT’s shelter during their appointment time (scheduled between 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.) on Kitten Palooza day to meet and adopt kittens in person!

*Applying does not guarantee an appointment. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. We may receive more applications than we can accommodate and appointment times are limited. Apply early for the best appointment availability.

If your application is approved, you will receive an email from us with a link to schedule an appointment for the adoption event. We will review and reply to applications in the order they are received, and it could take a day or two before you hear from us.

Please do not call or email to ask about the status of your application — staff and volunteers will be busy reviewing applications as quickly as they can. We promise to contact you as soon as possible with an update!

Unfortunately, no — putting in your application is how you request an appointment for June 25, but it’s not a guarantee. Our team will review applications in the order they are received. We have a limited number of appointments available, and it’s possible that we will receive more applications than we can accommodate. Adopters must also be comfortable with our adoption policies; we’ll contact you if we have any questions. 

After you put in an application, we will contact you as soon as possible with an update on your application status! Please be patient; it could take a day or two before you hear from us.

On Saturday, June 25, 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; please plan accordingly.

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

These kittens will not appear on CAT’s website before the event. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you might see some of the 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!

Kitten adoption fees are $200. 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 (while supplies last), kitten care handbook, and post-adoption support from CAT’s adoption counselors.

Adopters at Kitten Palooza also will get a “swag bag” of goodies from our event sponsors!

For more details about CAT’s adoption fees, click here.

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 25, please wait and visit when you’re ready. We will have lots more kitties looking for homes later this summer!

Of course! 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 a small number of kittens — and  lots of lovely adult cats! — looking for new homes. 

Visit our Adoption page for more information.

Adopets provides the tech support for CAT’s online adoption system.  If you are experiencing technical issues, please use the “Help” link at the top of the application page to start a support chat or email support@adopets.com.
