Our Adoption Process

1. Book a Visit

Each cat at Catoro is unique. Their biography on our website may not capture the full range of their personality. Our Cat Forest is a cozy, calm environment for folks to meet kitties where they feel relaxed and comfortable.

It is mandatory that every adopter meets the cat they are interested in adopting. No adoption will be processed without a meeting.

2. Fill out an application

We have an online application form that you can fill out on the bottom of this page. Please include as much detail as possible so the adoption coordinator has a good sense of who you are and what you are looking for in a feline companion.

Please note that due to the volume of applicants, only those selected to move forward in the adoption process will be contacted.

3. Check your inbox

Our adoption coordinator will reach out via email to begin processing your application. This may include a phone interview, photos of your home, and supplemental paperwork such as a letter of permission from your landlord. Please double check your email is spelled correctly and make sure to check your spam folder.

It can take up to two weeks to hear back about an application but please feel free to follow up if you haven't heard back after a week. Adoption approval is based on the best match for the cat(s), and not first-come-first-served.

4. Get ready for a new family member

If your application is approved, you will be sent an adoption contract. Adoption fees are paid differently depending on which rescue your new kitty is coming from. The rescue will either ask for a direct e-transfer or the adoption fee can be paid through Catoro.

Make sure you are prepared to bring your new kitty home - Catoro stocks all the essentials to keep your cat happy and healthy. We also offer monthly subscriptions and local delivery.

5. Scheduling a Pickup

Once all paperwork is complete and the adoption fee has been paid, the rescue will send an official adoption confirmation email. Catoro will then reach out to assign a pick up date! and time.

Please note that pickup times and dates are limited and unscheduled pickups will not be accommodated. We require at least 24 hours notice to change a pick up date.

Catoro can usually accommodate pick ups within 1 week of adoption, but the wait time may fluctuate depending on how many adoptions we have pending.

How much is the adoption fee?

Our adoption fee is $400 for one cat and $600 for a pair. Prices are inclusive of tax.

What does the adoption fee include?

The adoption fee includes your cat's spay/neuter, all vaccinations, microchip, deworming, and testing for FELV and FIV.
