An adopted kitten with her new family in San Antonio.

If you’re looking for a furry new feline baby to take home, there are plenty of options for adoption in our beautiful city of San Antonio. We have some tips on getting prepared to bring your new family member home and a few possible locations where your cat could possibly be at this very moment!

Be Prepared

A cat’s lifespan can range between twelve-eighteen years. Depending on your new cat’s age, make sure you have a plan to provide the best possible home during their lifetime. 

Be sure that any current pets will be able to tolerate having a cat in the space.

Make an appointment for your new cat to be spayed or neutered if they have not already had the procedure. 

Get necessary supplies:

  • Wet or dry cat food
  • Water dish
  • Food dish
  • Litter box
  • Litter scoop
  • Pelleted litter for younger cats or clumping litter for older cats
  • Collar and ID tag

Optional supplies

  • Cat hideaway
  • Cat tree
  • Cat toys
