Thank you for your interest in adopting a cat from The Ferndale Cat Shelter! If you’re looking for cats currently available for adoption, please visit the Catfinder page. Please note that with rare exceptions, we prefer that kittens younger than 6 months are adopted in pairs, or into a home that already has at least one, friendly cat. (Why? Kittens thrive in pairs!)
The Ferndale Cat Shelter works to vet, care for, and place cats from Ferndale, metro Detroit, and beyond. In order to help offset the soaring costs of veterinary care, our adoption fees are as follows:
- $175 for kittens under 1 year or $300 for a pair of kittens.
- $150 for cats older than one year or $250 for a pair of adult cats.
Your adoption fee includes spay or neuter surgery, age-appropriate core vaccines, microchipping, and basic wellness care including de-worming and flea control. Please note that all adoption deposits and fees are non-refundable, and we do not give away cats or kittens free of cost.
