Adopt a Cat

When you adopt a cat from ABC, you help two cats!

Not only do you help the cat joining your family, but also the newly rescued cat in it’s spot. The placement of our animals is a detailed process as we strive to ensure they are a good match with their prospective family. If you’re interested in adopting, please read our adoption process. Listed ages are approximate in most cases.

Meet April! She’s a stunning girl with the world’s softest fur. A good Samaritan found April locked in a plastic carrier in the hot sun beside fellow cat, Domino.

  • ash

Ash | Silver Tabby DSH
Male | dob January 2016

We are amazed that we got such good pictures of Ash. He LOVES attention and can’t get close enough to you…or the camera. He even sat on our shoulders during the “photo shoot”. Ash is an energetic guy who exudes love. He will need a home where there is a lot of activity and another confident cat to play with, since he can be a bit too playful for shy cats. A bit of “baby proofing” will be required with this guy – he has a habit of eating strings and chewing on cellphone charging cords!


  • bluebell
  • bluebell

Bluebell | Gray DLH
Female | dob August 2015

Bluebell is a gentle feline who really opens up to a soft spoken person. She will softly “hold” a conversation with you and prefers being petted and brushed, rather than playing with toys. Bluebell will do best in a calm, quiet home with someone that she can call all her very own. She was a bit shy when she came to ABC, so one of our teen volunteers starting reading to her. She loves the extended attention and excels in cuddling as close as she can whenever you want to read a book! She would like to be the only cat in the household.


  • Boots

Curious, sweet Boots was rescued after being trapped in a locker at a local Phoenix airport. When he first arrived he was frightened of everything, all he wanted to do was hide in a box in his kennel. He didn’t even know how to play or purr! Now he loves to play with his foster kitty friends and snuggle and love on his human friends! He loves to hunt and stalk paper, toys, and unmatched socks.

Coconut is “Mother Of The Year” in our books! When Coconut was rescued from the streets, she was dirty, hungry, and as round as, well…a coconut! Soon after she arrived at ABC she gave birth to four kittens, then adopted FIVE MORE abandoned kittens! She even searched the cat carrier to make sure we didn’t miss any babies. Coconut is the most gentle, loving cat of all time. Needless to say, she was one busy mama taking care of her babies – Cherry, Strawberry, Papaya, Mango, Peppermint (adopted), Kiwi (adopted), Cobbler, Peaches, and Sherbet (adopted) – the staff also helped with supplemental bottle feeding.

  • domino
  • domino

Domino | Black & White Tuxedo DLH

Domino was found locked in a plastic carrier in the hot sun beside fellow cat, April. This beautiful guy would love to find a calm home where he can feel safe to relax.

Faith | Siamese mix
Female | dob August 2015

Faith is a flame point Siamese mix with the prettiest (and slightly crossed) blue eyes. She is a very sweet mama who got her name because of her unwavering faithfulness to find her babies, Bubbles, Tarzan & Tiger Lily (all three adopted). Her babies were abandoned in a parking lot and the following day we found Faith on the roof looking for them. She was elated to be reunited with her kittens, but now she’s ready to find her forever home! Faith is as sweet as they come. She has a quiet and loving personality and is easy going.

We know he’ll absolutely blossom once he settles into his new home. He is playful and very social with the other cats and has been known to follow the volunteers when he thinks they’re not looking! He lets the staff and volunteers hold him and purrs to show his content. He’s just longing for someone to give him a little time to become best friends.

Forrest | Brown Tabby DMH
Male | dob June 2017

Little Forrest is a shy, pretty tabby who was rescued with Fern and Flint. Forrest is the shyest of the three and tries to hide behind his sister. Since Forrest looks just like Fern, maybe she offers the best camouflage! The staff and volunteers have been patiently working with Forrest to overcome his shyness and have been making progress! He’ll do best in a home where he is showered with love and patience. Often times, the shyest kitties turn out to be the most loyal best friends!
