Cat Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in adopting!


Please read the following before applying. We look forward to matching you with a new best friend!

Thank you for your interest in adopting a cat from PAWS!

  • If you are interested in adopting an urgent animal featured on our social media, please submit your online application below and enter the pet’s information on the line at the top. 
  • If you are interested in adopting a specific pet who is in foster care, please submit your online application below, and then reach out to the foster parent directly (their contact info is noted in the pet’s bio on our adoption page) to let them know you have done so.  
  • If you have already submitted an application, please email adoptions@phillypaws.org rather than submit a new application.
  • We are processing applications as quickly as we can. If you haven’t heard from us within 2 weeks, please reach out if you’re still interested in adopting. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding!
  • If you do not hear from us, the pet has found a forever home! You will only be contacted by our adoption staff if we have another pet who may be a good fit for you. 

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding!
