The Cat House on the Kings doesn't only take in surrendered cats, we also actively rescue cats and kittens from local animal shelters and "the streets" (many of our animals are found abandoned on the side of the road), restore them to health, and find them loving homes. We rescue and place hundreds of cats and kittens every year. Oh, and we don't just rescue cats — we take in puppies and dogs too!
Listed below is our Spring Collection of cats and dogs available for adoption. For more information and photos on a specific critter, and to fill out an online adoption application, click on the critter's picture or the MORE button.
If you cannot decide which critter would be the best match for your family, just fill out a general cat or dog adoption application and one of our adoption coordinators will be happy to help match you with someone suitable.
All adoptable animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for fleas. All cats and kittens are also treated for worms and ear mites, tested for FeLV/FIV and litter-box trained.

By choosing to travel to The Cat House on the Kings from out of the area and adopt from us, you must agree to accept 100% of the financial responsibility for the care of the animal(s) and that if something does not work out with the animal(s) you will be responsible for returning the animal(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 is not acceptable to you, please consider adopting locally.

Beautiful, classic, striped tabby treasure Athena is hoping for a extra-special forever person.

Her wonderful …

Meet this very beautiful gold-dusted girl named Gabbana! What an odyssey she has been on that took a u-turn toward happiness when she came to us!

Meet sweet Miles, a mild mannered, buff and cream cutie who loves toys or feathers dangled on a wand, jinglebell balls, romps with his brothers and sister, and cozy naps in a nice, warm spot.

Meet little dolly Molly, she is a kitty who has a quiet elegance, a big heart, and an undemanding personality. She is independent, sits back to observe before exploring.

Marvelous, mellow Mugsy is a beautiful big cat who was recently shaved due to matting. He will benefit from a high quality food (he loves salmon flavors) and frequent brushing.

Two bouncy pouncy kittens named Paddington and Batty came to us from a feral mama and have grown into very burly boys who would love a forever home together.

Apricot orange Trooper has definite likes and dislikes! He would call them standards!

Not Ready to Adopt?
Foster a Kitten!
We still have kittens we've rescued from local shelters. Many are very young — too young to be adopted — and need lots of TLC and handling to bond with humans.
Never done this before? Don't worry! We'll provide all the stuff you need to get started, and we'll be in contact so that you'll know what to do, and you'll have a good experience. And who knows, maybe you'll bond with your kitten, and end up adopting him!
Sponsor a Cat
We know that some of our cats, for whatever reasons — old age, trauma, or medical problems — will never be adopted and will spend their lives here. We cherish these kitties and always want to be able to provide the best for them. We promised them that they would never again have to worry about having enough food to eat, a warm bed in which to snuggle, or a caring human to give them lots of love and to take care of their health.
We also realize that some of you may not be able to adopt one of our cats but would like to be able to help them out. That's why we have the SPONSOR-A-CAT program. You can become a sponsor for just $15 a month.
Your donation helps pay for the basic needs of each cat during its stay with us. When you sign-up to sponsor a cat you will be able to view their story and latest pictures. You are also welcome (and encouraged!) to visit us and "your" cat as often as you can. The cats do remember frequent visitors, and enjoy the individual love and attention their sponsors provide.
