Security code:
We do not share your information with any other organization or company for any purpose whatsoever.
  • The adopter must pick up the cat in person from The Cat House on the Kings sanctuary or off-site Adoption Center. If you live outside Central California, you will have to travel to our adoption center in Central California where the cat is being cared for. To ensure the safety of the cats in our care, we will neither transport or ship them nor will we allow a third party to pick up the cat on the adopter's behalf. We may make an exception on a case-by-case basis for an immediate member of the adopter's family. If this requirement is not acceptable to you, please do not submit an application!
  • If you choose to travel from out of the area to The Cat House on the Kings and adopt from us, you must agree to accept 100% of the financial responsibility for the care of the cat(s) and that if something does not work out with the cat(s), you will be responsible for returning the cat(s) to us safely at your expense. (We do not have the ability or financial resources to travel out of the area to retrieve our cats.) If this requirement is not acceptable to you, please do not submit an application!
