Adoption Application

Thank you so much for applying to adopt! We are doing our best to process applications as quickly as possible and we really appreciate your patience.

For cats in foster homes, we are recommending only connecting remotely -- our fosters are great at introducing the cats over video and answering any questions you might have.

If you are interested in cats currently at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe, you can make a reservation to visit them during our open hours:

Adoptions will begin as a trial adoption -- that means that you'll begin by signing the adoption agreement and submitting the adoption donation, but will have 14 days to return the cat, or exchange for a better fit, if things aren't working out. We ask that you provide the carrier, litterbox, litter and food -- but you can also purchase from us. We can arrange curbside delivery by a volunteer driver if necessary.

As always, we DO NOT adopt out single kittens and any applications for a single kitten will be ignored.

If anything on your application changes OR you decide to adopt elsewhere (we won't be offended, we know some folks have multiple applications going), please let us know -- email us

Please note that we do not adopt out single kittens unless you have an age-approriate feline at home.

Looking Forward...


References are now a much bigger part of our application process than before and we really want to hear about you as a person. These references do not need to be work related (although they can be) -- friends, former roommates, neighbors are all great. References should NOT be family members, current roommates or significant others (please do not list your mother! Please include 3 people and their email addresses UNLESS they really don't email (which is totally fine, some folks don't) -- emailing helps us process applications faster. Please do not put N/A or leave a reference blank, instead wait a little longer to submit your application and think about someone else who can tell us about how great you are.

STOP! Please check your references and confirm that they are NOT RELATED TO OR DATING YOU. Are there any typos in their email addresses? Good to go? Let them know that we will be reaching out soon and the sooner they respond, the sooner you can adopt.

And Finally...

Note: We require an adoption donation to contribute to the care of future rescues. Your donation is not a fee as it does not cover the costs associated with rescuing each cat, but instead contributes to our ability to continue our rescue work.
