Adoption By Appointment

Cats and kittens residing at the shelter are available for adoption and looking for their forever homes.  However, as a precaution during this COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we will no longer have public hours for the shelter.  Instead, we will offer adoption by appointment only.  

Our highest priorities are the cats in our care, the volunteers who provide care, and our potential adopters.  We have moved to an adoption by appointment system in order to ensure the health and well-being of our caregivers and the community and still provide our kitties an opportunity to find loving homes. 




NOTE:  The shelter is re-opening for adoption appointments on February 28, 2022.

We hope to re-open for adoption appointments & nail trim appointments sometime in mid-to-late February. Please watch our website or Facebook Page for updates.

✅ Each appointment will be one-hour long; this will allow for time to meet with the cat(s) to see if they are a good fit and process the actual adoption should you choose to adopt.

Visitors are recommended to wear face masks, regardless of vaccination status. This includes children age 2+.

✅ Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you are more than 10 minutes late, your appointment will be canceled and you’ll need to reschedule.

✅ If using a GPS to drive to the shelter, please put in the FULL address, including the city, NORTH St. Paul.  Our address is 2550 7th Ave E., North St. Paul, MN.  CLICK HERE for a map and directions.

Thank you for your support of Caring for Cats and our felines looking for their forever homes.


After you book your appointment, you will get a confirmation email (along with a cancellation link, should you need it.)  If for any reason you can’t make your appointment, use the link in your confirmation email to cancel your appointment.  Our volunteers are waiting for you and if you cancel your appointment then someone else has the opportunity to visit one of our kitties.  And if you’re looking for an appointment sooner than what’s available, please check this page often because sometimes there are cancellations.  
Please do not call the shelter for an adoption appointment.

Please make sure your email and phone contact information are correct as you may be contacted by one of our volunteers before your adoption appointment in order to discuss your appointment and/or to respond to any questions you may have. If you do not respond within 24 hours of your appointment time, your appointment will be canceled.

If there are no dates/times listed below
that means that currently all available appointments have been scheduled.  We only allow appointments to be made 4 weeks in advance.  Please check back for additional dates and times to be added or for openings when other appointments have been canceled.
