CATSS has the health of humans and felines in mind. We are operating our visitations and adoptions to adhere to social-distancing practices.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Kittens are back at the Ginko Gallery! Come meet our kitties during open hours: noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Visitation activity in the "kitten area" will be closely monitored to ensure physical distancing.
To adopt a kitten, please meet a CATSS volunteer at the Ginko Gallery for a consultation and to receive a kitten adoption application.
Adolescent & Adult Cats
Office hours at Lincoln Street are still suspended. Please visit Petfinder to see adoptable cats in foster care!
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, CATSS has implemented an "almost contact-less" adoption process based on best practices of animal rescues around the country:
All of our cats and kittens are in foster care. Visit our page on Petfinder to find those currently available for adoption. Just click the button below or this link to get started.
Petfinder is a third-party, searchable database of animals who need homes.
Upon receiving your application, a CATSS volunteer will contact you to discuss which cat(s) you are interested in adopting and to determine if it would be a good fit with your family situation.
If you are interested in adopting from us, you must fill out the updated adoption application* and email it to CATSSOberlin@gmail.com.
*This is not the same application to adopt a kitten from the Ginko Gallery. Please visit the gallery in-person if interested in a Ginko kitten.
Meet & Greet
If you are accepted as a potential adopter, you will be connected with the foster family for a virtual “meet and greet.”
Agreement & Pick-up
If you and the foster parents agree it will be a good fit, all paperwork will be handled electronically and we will arrange a time for you to pick up and pay for the cat.
You will not have the opportunity to meet the cat in person before adopting. We hope that by having direct contact with the foster family you will be able to get a good sense of the cat's personality!
