Adopt a Cat

How wonderful you’ve decided to adopt a cat! We have many great shelter cats and kittens who would love be part of your family. There’s many ages, breeds, and personalities from which to choose. When you adopt from EASEL, your cat will have had spay / neuter surgery, a microchip implanted, a rabies vaccination (if at least four months old), and more.

Recognizing all animals and their adoptive families have unique needs, lifestyles preferences, temperaments, and preferred home environments, our experienced adoption counselors will advise you which residents would be best suited for your family. We pride ourselves on helping you to find the purr-fect feline friend! (There’s more information on cat adoptions under our available feline photos below.)

Cat Adoption Application

Every day is a great day to adopt a cat! You can submit your Adoption Application Online  — even if you have not yet found that special someone to adopt. Adopters do not need to reside in Mercer County, NJ. We look forward to helping you create your Happy Tails!

Find a Cat

We know our kittens and cats are easy to fall in love with and are adopted quickly. We encourage you to visit our weekly Adoption Day Events held in the community.  Or stop by EASEL’s Adoption Center located in the heart of Mercer County at 4 Jake Garzio Drive, Ewing, NJ (close to I-95 and the Trenton-Mercer Airport) to meet our available cats and kittens as some may not appear in the Available Cats Listed above.

SENIOR CATS make great pets. Their owners often move into senior citizen facilities that prohibit pets. The advantages of a senior cat is that you know what you are getting and their personalities are already developed. They are more mellow and less mischievous. They enjoy lengthy naps and are not as much work. But mostly, you are giving a needy cat a home and saving a precious life!

WORKING CATS make up some of our homeless felines. They typically prefer non-traditional homes such as barns, warehouses, and businesses. Visit our Working Cats page for more information.

FOSTER CATS live in private homes enjoying a lovely environment and lots of attention. There are many reasons why a cat may be fostered including: too young to adopt yet, recovering from surgery, awaiting surrender paperwork, a senior cat who does better in a home environment, or we may just need the valuable shelter space to take in new felines.
