Our adoption fee is $50 for kittens that you will be getting spayed by your veterinarian. Our adoption fee is $100 for kittens that are already spayed or that we will be getting spayed for you by one of our veterinarians. Our adoption fee is $150 for our cats and kittens that are de-clawed. Once they reach the age of three, any of our cats can be adopted for a fee of just $50. The adoption fee enables the shelter to recoup a portion of the expenses of spay/neutering, Feline Leukemia testing, vaccinations, worming, ear mite treatment, and flea protection. It also reflects our commitment to keep our residents healthy until they are adopted, however long that may take. We are normally caring for approximately 200 cats. In order to maintain the health of our kittens while at the shelter, we vaccinate them on the day that they come to us, and then every two to three weeks thereafter, until they have had three sets of vaccinations. This helps to prevent distemper and upper respiratory infections from infiltrating the shelter. We have reduced the adoption fee to just $50 for any cat that has reached the age of three years. If our older cats have not been seen by a veterinarian recently we will have it checked out at one of the clinics that work with us, before you take it home.
Cats Available for Adoption – Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter, Inc.
You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Philadelphia pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Philadelphia is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Philadelphia animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.

Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Philadelphia – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.
