If you are contacting CARE for help with taking in a stray cat, please first review:  “What to do if you find a stray cat” under Resources on this website.  If you are still in need of assistance, please use the intake form by clicking the RED Request Feline Intake button below.  For all other inquiries, please use the “Contact Us” form below and include detailed information so we can determine how best to direct your inquiry. Please do not ask if a cat is available!  We are extremely busy with adoptions and are not able to answer available cat inquiries or specific cat questions until after you have submitted an application.  It’s not that we don’t want to, we are busy with taking care of our rescue cats, reviewing applications and coorinating adoptions, so unfortunately just do not have enough time!

Please note that we do not have a shelter and are an all volunteer, foster home based organization and we have limited availability to take in stray or surrendered felines.

If you are interested in adopting a feline, please fill out an online application and an adoption coordinator will contact you.

*Please Note: CARE does not work with feral felines.

If you have found a friendly cat or kittens or need to surrender a cat,
