CFA Rescue & Adoptions

CFA offers a small, personable and adoption program.  Our rescued animals are housed at the CFA office and with foster homes until they are healthy and ready for adoption.  All CFA adoptable animals are spayed or neutered, fully vetted, up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped and treated for parasites.  Finding the perfect home and match takes time and personal attention!

Check It Out! 

CFA has two tuxedos up for adoption, Charlie and Archie. They can go together or separately. They both like chin scratches, treats, and chasing their toys. No fly is safe with them in the office. To learn more about them go to: To schedule time to meet them, please call 360-456-8176.

Meet Possum. She's new at CFA (fresh out of kitty foster care) and up for adoption. She enjoys playing with her sister, Bee, and getting a chest rub while she takes her nap. Please call 360-456-8176 to meet her. 

Say hello to Ernest. Ernest has been with CFA since he was three weeks old, so he's very used to people. Like his siblings, he's a climber, and he enjoys sitting on your shoulder. He has been neutered and is ready to find his new pet parents. Please call 360-456-8176 to schedule a time to meet him. 

Say hello to Rabbit. Rabbit is our resident polydactyl (she has six toes on one foot). If you're looking for a low energy cat, she's the one for you. Favorite things include sitting on laps and munching on treats. To meet her please call, 360-456-8176. 

Come to CFA and see if Klay is right for you. He's a sweet little guy who's looking for a loving home with lots of lap time and extra attention. He's good with both people and cats, and if you take him off your chair, he will jump right back on. To meet him, visit the CFA office (please park in the back lot) or call ahead at 360-456-8176.

The Life of a Cat

by Michael M. Middleton, who adopted Blackie in 2012

To live the life of a cat
would well be worth
the few years given.
A life of true freedom,
at peace with oneself,
is a life that’s worth the livin’!
To live each moment in wonder…
like a child
the world to see;
to simply play and to run
or lounge in the sun;
that seems like a good deal to me.
