Adoption Process 

We are a best match rescue. Our goal is to match the individual pet to where we feel they would be most successful. It is not necessarily first-come, first-served for approved applications.


After selecting a cat or kitten you are interested, or if you intend to adopt a cat chosen by our match makers, an application is filled out. The Urban Cat Coalition adoption team will perform background checks, veterinarian reference checks and landlord checks. Once the application review process is complete, you will be contacted by one of our match makers and then you will be put in touch with the foster home to arrange a meet and greet (virtual or in-person) with the kitty you want to adopt.

Once you have met the kitty, you and the foster home will decide if it is a good fit. After this step, we have a 24 hour hold to allow you time to be sure adopting is the right decision. When you have made your decision to adopt, you will receive a link from our adoption team to our online database where you can sign off on the contract and pay your adoption fee from the comfort of your own computer or mobile phone. Once you sign the contract and pay the adoption fee, the foster will arrange a day and time for you to get your new furry companion. We will email you digital copies of all medical records and register the microchip to you as well as give you access to an online database called AdopterLuv.

Please note applicants must be at least 21 years of age to be eligible for adopting a cat from Urban Cat Coalition.
