Although you can view the cats available for adoption during regular PetSmart store hours, you have the chance to meet the cats in person on Saturdays and Sundays when our volunteer Adoption Counselors are available to help make the introductions. 

Benefits of Adopting from PALS

PALS is a no-kill, all-volunteer rescue organization that focuses on local stray, abandoned and needy cats and kittens. We do not have any paid staff and we rely on the generosity of private donations and adoption fees to support our efforts to place cats in suitable, loving homes. Because we believe in sending adopters home with healthy, happy cats, every cat in our Adoption Center has:

  • undergone a pre-adoption veterinary exam
  • received age-appropriate vaccinations
  • been spayed/neutered
  • received a microchip (the adopter will receive a one-year membership to Home Again)
  • been tested negative for FeLV/FIV

Adopters also get plenty of support and information from the experienced volunteers at PALS.

The biggest benefit of adopting a cat from PALS is knowing you have helped save a life.

The goal of all of our volunteers is to find permanent and loving homes for all of our animals. To begin your search for the perfect feline, use one of the links below.
