Adoption

If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten, Paws & Claws Feline Rescue has most of our pets on Petfinder.com with photos and information about each pet.  

We also have adoption days at PetSmart, Statesville - Noon to 5 pm the second and fourth Saturdays of each month and at Petco, Mooresville - Noon to 4 pm on the first and third Saturdays of each month.

All prospective adopters need to fill out an application, which must be approved, with special emphasis on checking veterinary references.  Then a contract is signed stating that the adopter will abide by our standards of pet care.  Caseworkers may do home visits to assist in finding good matches for the people who wish to adopt a pet.



All placements into new homes are on a three-week trial basis to make sure both the pet and the new adoption family are a good match for each other.  If at any time in the future the adopting family is unable to care for the pet, our contract states that the pet is to be returned to us.  This way we can ensure it gets another good home and does not have to face again the homeless circumstances that brought it to us in the first place.
Our adoption fee is $125.00. This includes Feline Leukemia/Aids/Heartworm Combo test, all vaccinations, including rabies, deworming, and spay/neuter surgery.
