Cat Adoption Program

The Pets West Cat & Kitten Adoption Program is designed to help various local shelters adopt out the many unwanted cats and kittens brought to them each year, and try to prevent turning away any cat in need of a good home.

Pets West works with a number of local cat rescues, including Victoria Humane Society and Dee’s Orphan Fund.

Unfortunately, our waiting list is now over 300 people, and in fairness to those that have waited for months, we cannot accept any more at this time. 
We are sorry we cannot assist you at this time and suggest also trying our resource page at https://www.petswest.ca/resources

Adoptions are done as a volunteer service with no fee charged by Pets West (all adoption fees go directly to the rescue) and with limited resources.  Our goal is to ensure that all cats get a good home, and hopefully in the long term that all good homes get a cat. 

The Pets West Adoption Program started in 1996, and as of early 2020, has seen over 4000 adoptions!

We have been proud to help local rescue groups such as:

G.V.A.C
C.A.T.N.A.P
Dees Orphan Fund
Nana Foundation
SPCA
Cats Rescue Corps
Cat's Cradle
Catspan
CRD Pound
Vocal
Victoria Humane Society
Victoria Adoptables
Animals For Life
Surrey Animal Resource Center
Dog Bless
Plus various other groups

Pets West would like to remind potential adopters that cats can live up to 20 years; adoptions are intended to be a commitment for the entire life of the pet. The various rescue groups we work with reserve the right to refuse adoption of cats to applicants.
