Available Cats

HSCI always has a variety of cats looking for their forever home: kittens, adults, short-hair, long-hair, tabby, exotic. Our pets are vetted and handled regularly by staff and volunteers so they are healthy and socialized!

We update this page often as new cats come in and others go home. Not all available cats are included on our website so we encourage you to visit the Pet Adoption Center in person!  Adoption application process details are included on our Adoption Information page. To see photos of pets that have found new homes, visit the Galleries of Adopted Pets.

Cats that have the Very Important Pet! Very Important Pet logo have a reduced fee of $30!  Look for the logo on their files by their kennels.

Cannot adopt any pets at this time?  Consider helping a pet with a Pet Sponsorship!
