Adoption Process


So You Want To
Adopt Your New Best Friend

The goal of Cat Association of Topeka is to make the best match taking into consideration the cat's background and your family's needs and lifestyle. Every cat is different: personality, temperament, energy, comfort with kids and other animals, medical needs and more. We take all these factors into consideration when making a furever-home match. We are very careful about the placements we make. We do our best to match the right cat with the right adoptive home because we want this to be the cat’s permanent home.

If you are willing to wait for the right animal to be matched to you, you are an ideal candidate for Cat Association of Topeka.
As our success rate proves, these precious cats are well worth the wait.




We appreciate you wanting to bring a cat into your home. In order for us to find the right cat for you, we need you to come in and visit us and complete an adoption application.



Your application will be reviewed and if we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.
