Adopt Your New Best Friend!

We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and microchipped. The adoption fee is $25 for 1 or 2 cats/kittens. 

Browse some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We require a phone screening prior to adoption, so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take one home that day, be sure to fill out and submit the application at least one day in advance so we can pre-approve your adoption.

As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw them, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption.  These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.

Adoption Hours and Locations

You can come meet the adoptable cats and kittens at OAR's shelter during our open adoption hours:

Mondays and Thursdays: 6-8 PM

OAR cats and kittens can also be seen at PetSmart in Oakley, 3401 Alamo Avenue, throughout the week and on weekends. Volunteers will be available every Thursday from 6-8 pm and every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 pm at PetSmart to answer questions about the cats.   

Adopt a Working Cat

If you're not looking for a traditional pet cat to live inside your house, OAR's Working Cats Program might be just for you. The Working Cats Program places unsocialized (or feral) community cats into non-traditional forever homes such as barns, workshops, nurseries, warehouses, junkyards, and breweries. Working cats don't want to curl up on laps or be petted, but in exchange for daily meals and shelter from wildlife and the elements, these cats will provide environmentally friendly rodent control for your property. For more information on how you can adopt one of these special animals, visit our Working Cats page!
