Bring Joy to a pet in need of a new home! Now through December 31*, all of our dogs and cats are fee waived in favor of a donation.
If you’ve been thinking about getting a cat, now is the purr-fect time to visit Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Animal Care & Control! Their kitten nursery is full of adorable kittens who would love to find a forever home with you. If an adult cat is more your speed, they have plenty of those too.
As you browse through our articles and photo galleries, make sure to note the 7-digit animal ID number (starts with an A) for any cat(s) you’re interested in. When you go to the Animal Care & Control shelter to meet your potential new pet(s) in person, the ID number will help shelter staff locate the cat(s) of your choice.
Things to bring to adopt a cat or kitten from Animal Care & Control:
-Your valid driver’s license or state- or government-issued ID. If your ID does not have your correct address, bring something else such as a paycheck, car registration, utility bill, etc. that shows your correct address.
-A cat carrier for each animal you plan to adopt. If you end up taking more than one cat home because you couldn’t decide between two and you only have one carrier, don’t worry. Animal Care & Control sells temporary cat boxes for $4 each if you need one.
-If you already have animals at home, bring their current rabies certificate(s).
Right now, all adoptable kittens and adult cats are FREE to adopt in favor of a donation to Animal Care & Control’s kitten nursery.
If you want to find out what type of cat might be a good fit for you, you can take the Meet Your Match Feline-ality Cat Adopter Survey. This fun one-page quiz will identify what type of cat will mesh well with your preferences, expectations, and lifestyle.
