BROOKLYN HAS JUST BEEN ADOPTED! WE WILL HOPE FOR A NEW KITTY SOON!
We have been an active club in the Village for almost 50 years, and over those many years have found homes for thousands of cats. We are passionate about our cats and their well-being, and operate our club professionally to make sure these furry creatures have the loving homes they so deserve.
You may count on us to support you either in finding that perfect cat to share your life, or in finding a new home for your cat. Or, in the joy of becoming a Foster – that temporary care-giver we count on so much. We are here to help you share the love.
Our primary goal is a successful adoption: finding a loving and safe forever home for the special cats who have entered our program, most of whom are older and grieving the loss of their home and human. It’s important to us to establish that the potential adopter is capable of providing the kitty with a safe environment, nourishing food, regular veterinary care, appropriate attention, and an understanding heart. We are honest about each cat’s needs and the potential cost of its care. On this basis, we reserve the right to deny an application. However, because we are so thorough, our success rate is phenomenally high. Most of our cats have spent their lives in one home where they were given lots of love and care. So most, in spite of their advanced age, are friendly, affectionate, and healthy creatures. Each has had a recent exam and is up to date on all required shots and tests. For us, the joy of a purrfect match is indescribable.

*The Club would appreciate a minimum donation of $50.00.
This video is the story of the 30 cats the Laguna Woods Cat Club took into our program this past year. We were able to find loving homes for each and every one of these precious kitties. Please have a look at the cats that were saved by ADOPTION. Thanks for your on-going support and
Happy New Year.

Be prepared should be your mantra when bringing a new pet into your home. Cats are particularly sensitive to new surroundings and some may hide under a bed or in a closet for days or even weeks. You can avoid pitfalls with your new critter and help him or her adapt more easily by following these guidelines:
Before You Bring Your Cat Home:
First Day: Now, you are ready for your cat’s homecoming. Preferably, bring her home in a cat carrier. It will feel safer to her.She has seen a lot of excitement, so take her directly to her new room. (Make sure the toilet lid is down, if she’s to acclimate in your bathroom.) Ideally, you would restrict her exposure to the whole family, but naturally, everyone is going to want to see her. Remind them of the ground rules you’ve set up.
Following Weeks: It may take your cat a week or two to adjust. Be patient.
Congratulations! If you follow these tips, you’ll be on your way to having a well-adjusted feline family member.
