Cat Adoption Fees

Why Do Rescues Have Adoption Fees?

Along with the cost of daily care and great food, our adoption fees help WCAL cover vaccinations and other important veterinary care. On adoption day, our cats will be altered, microchipped, vaccinated and tested for FeLV/FIV too!


Adoption Fees:

  • $100 - Single Cat
  • $150 - Pair of Cats (discounted rate)

Fee will be waived if you're adopting a senior or special needs cat.

These adoption fees are much lower than our actual costs for medical, food, pet supplies, etc. because we want adoption to be accessible to everyone! Our donors subsidize the actual cost of adoption and we are grateful for the support.

Adoption fees are not tax deductible, but the amount of any gift to WCAL that is above and beyond the fees listed above IS tax deductible.

Adoption Fee Includes:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • FVRCP & Rabies Vaccines (age appropriate)
  • Microchip
  • FeLV/FIV Test
  • Flea Treatment
  • Deworming
