If you're looking for a new feline friend to brighten up your life, we have many cats in foster care who would love to share your home. The cats and kittens featured on this page are currently residing in foster homes or at the GNHCP Center and can be visited by appointment. Our adoption procedure begins with completing the adoption screening form (below). If your application is to be considered, we will contact you within 1 week at which time we will ask you to call your current veterinarian to provide permission so we can talk to them about your previous pet(s). If we do not contact you within 1 week, your application will not be considered.
Please note some of our adoption requirements:
If you do not own your residence, you must be in your current residence for a minimum of 9 months. If you are contacted for an adoption interview, you must bring a copy of your lease demonstrating permission to have a pet(s) and the originating lease date to your initial appointment
If you are a graduate student, you must have moved to New Haven with a companion animal in order for your application to be considered. GNHCP will ask to see veterinary records of your current pet; and
Kittens are adopted in pairs, unless you have another companion animal. Other requirements will be discussed with you during your interview.
We appreciate your understanding of our policies and procedures. If you do not meet the requirements listed above, please try other organizations/shelters. If you do not adopt from GNHCP, we can provide you with low-cost veterinary services to ensure your new pet is spayed/neutered.
If you are interested in meeting any of our feline friends, please fill out the Adoption Screening Form below.

We require potential adopters to complete an adoption screening form and be interviewed to assure that our cats and kittens find good and permanent homes. Potential adopters must be pre-screened prior to GNHCP setting up an appointment to meet foster cats or kittens.
We also require an adoption fee of $125 for adult cats and $150 for kittens to help defray the costs for vaccination and spay/neuter expenses. This adoption fee must be paid in full at the time of adoption. There is no flexibility in this arrangement. The adoption fee is the fee required per cat.
It may take up to 7 days for a volunteer to respond to your email once the form has been received.
