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. Please take a look at our adoption application here. Finding the perfect home and match takes time and personal attention!

Meet Patches!

Patches (named for a few white hairs here and there) is a big boy with a big personality. At 9 years old, he loves to play, scout squirrels from the windows, and eat treats – he definitely loves eating treats. Once he knows you, Patches is a lap cat that's always seeking cuddles and soft pets on his face and head. He is extremely talkative and will always ask about your day - truly a perfect pal to have at home!

Patches is in search of a forever family with no children, in a mellow home without any other pets, with owners that have had cats before. He can easily be overstimulated by new environments/people, and children and other animals tend to stress him out. He needs a patient forever family that can respect his boundaries but still shower him with love. *Patches does not enjoy rough petting, rough body play like wrestling, or being picked up.

You can see a video of Patches here:

If you would like to meet Patches and apply for adoption, please schedule a time to come by the office at 1414 State Ave NE by calling 360-456-8176 or emailing

Cost of Adoption: $115/Cat 

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.
