Adoption Information

Since we do not have a shelter and our cats/kittens are in private foster homes we are currently we are taking applications for pre-approval prior to a meet and greet.  We do have kittens coming up that are not on the website so it changes daily.  Once your application has been approved and adoption counselor will contact you.

Thank you for wanting to adopt your furever member of your family from The Feline Rescue Association. Please remember when considering adoption that this is a commitment for the life of the cat/kitten you are adopting.  We do not do out of state adoptions . If you are a Maryland resident we welcome your application.  We are a network of volunteers and our adoption coordinators will do their best to have your application processed within 48-72 hours.  We reserve the right to deny any application we feel is not in the best fit for our cats/kittens.   

How to adopt:

All of our cats are either in foster homes or at our Adoption Center at the Petco in Owings Mills (10383 Reisterstown Road).  **You do not need to have a particular cat in mind to put in an application!**


Unfortunately, we do not have a shelter where you can come meet all the cats at once, but if you are interested in adopting a cat from us, please complete our application and we will put you in touch with that cat's foster family so you can meet/adopt him or set up a time for a volunteer to meet you at Petco as necessary.  Many but not all of our cats also attend our adoption events held at the Petco in Owings Mills most Saturdays.  


Planning to attend one of our adoption events? 

  1. Complete our online application to get pre-approved and to save time at the event!

  2. Feel free to email us at for information on upcoming adoption events.

We also do adoptions by appointment.  Not all of our cats attend each adoption event.

  1. Find your forever friend

  2. Complete our online application and we will contact you to schedule an appointment!


All of our cats are spayed or neutered at the time of adoption, tested for FIV/FELV, have received standard vaccinations, have been treated for parasites, and are microchipped


Adoption fees  are payable by cash, check or credit card.  We also accept Paypal

Cats and kittens 6 months + of age:   $90, $150 for a pair

Kittens under 6 months of age:   $125, $210 for a pair

These fees help us cover the cost of preparing the cats for adoption.  They do not usually cover the entire cost, so please consider making an additional donation if you are able.  We help many more cats than we are able to adopt into homes.



Note about Kittens:  We strongly recommend that kittens be adopted in pairs or into homes with other cats.  This is not only for the mental and emotional health of the kitten, but is also in the interests of the adopter.  While we will not reject an application for a single kitten simply because there are no other cats in the house, priority will be given to double adoptions and adoptions to homes with other cats.
