What is the adoption process?

  • Fill out an adoption profile form. Adoption profiles are available online here or you can fill yours out at CatCon.
  • Speak with a Pasadena Humane Society adoptions specialist and let them know which cat you’d like to adopt.
  • Spend some one-on-one time with the kitty of your choice.
  • Complete your adoption. You will need to complete the adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and go over some paperwork about your new pet.

What do I need to bring to adopt?

  • Valid, government-issued I.D.
  • Payment (cash or credit only)

What is included in adoption?

  • A BFF who is:
    • Spayed/neutered
    • Up to date on vaccinations
    • Microchipped
  • Temporary cardboard carrier
  • A Kitty Starter Kit Swag Bag, which will include cat food and other goodies from Rachael Ray Nutrish

Do I have to fill out an application to visit with the cats?

All are welcome to visit with the cats in the adoption center. If you decide to adopt a cat, you will need to fill out an adoptions profile.

Do you do a home check?

Nope. You can take home your cat the same day as you adopt.

What should I do to prepare my home for my new cat?

We recommend you set up a starter room in your home in preparation for your new cat. Make sure it has a food and water bowl, litter box, cat bed, toys, and a scratching post. As your cat gets used to his or her new digs, you can slowly start to introduce them to the rest of the house.

What should I expect in my cat’s first week with me?

It might take your new kitty a little time to adjust to his or her surroundings. Be patient and give your furry friend the time and space they need to feel at home with their new family.

What if I have trouble with my new cat?

You can give our free behavior helpline a call at 626.792.7151 ext. 155.
