Adopt a Cat

When you adopt a kitten or cat from the Humane Rescue Alliance, you are saving that cat's life. We have many cats for you to choose from, and we will help match you with the best feline for you and your lifestyle.

Available Cats

Animals are available for adoption at our New York Ave NE Adoption Center, our Oglethorpe St NW Adoption Center, and via a robust network of Foster Homes throughout the area. As of October 2016, we also permanently house cats at the Petco located at 1503 New York Ave NE in Washington, DC. By using our online tool below, you can view the cats we currently have available in real time.

Adoption Process

Our adoption process starts by visiting and meeting the cat you want to possibly adopt. After meeting him or her, you will then fill out our adoption questionnaire and undergo counseling. You can sometimes bring your new pet home that day, unless they need a spay or neuter surgery. To learn more about the adoption process, please visit How to Adopt.
