Adoption Questions

  • How can I meet with the cat I am interested in?
    If you are interested in seeing a specific cat, please email us at so we can schedule a meeting at our shelter or with the appropriate foster home. Most of our cats are at our shelter in Lower Macungie Township but we do have a few in foster care.
  • Where can I find the adoption application?
    Click here to go to the online application.
  • How Long does the adoption process take?
    Please allow our volunteers 2-3 days to process your application. If you apply online, please check your email as we will respond to you via email. If you do not hear back from us within 24 hours please call or email us as we may not have received your application. Applicants must supply the name and number of their veterinarian. We will call the veterinarian to verify that your current or former pet is receiving the medical care he or she needs. If you do not have any pets, we require the name and number of personal references that do not live with you. ​
  • Is there an adoption fee?
    If you are approved and decide to adopt one of our cats or kittens, we request an adoption donation fee to help cover the cost of the shelter's veterinary expenses. Our requested adoption fee is $100.00 per cat. The adoption donation fee includes the following: ​ FeLV/FIV/Heartworm Testing – a $40 value Spaying or Neutering for all cats and kittens – a $90 – $200 value All Distemper and Rabies Vaccinations – a $60 value Deworming – a $20 value Flea Treatment and Ear mite Treatment as needed – a $25 value Microchip and Lifetime Registration of microchip – a $75 value
  • Can I adopt from you if I live out of state?
    Itty Bitty Kitty Inc., is located in Eastern Pennsylvania, in the Lehigh Valley. Our rescue organization does not adopt out of state due to the initial home visit and follow-up visits. Please check with your local rescue organizations and shelter to find a kitten or cat.
  • Can I put the cat I want to adopt on hold?
    No, we do not put animals on hold unless your application for adoption has been approved.
  • Why can’t I adopt only 1 kitten?
    It is our rule and recommendation that kittens under a year old must go in pairs, or to a home with another young cat, under the age of 4 years old. No exceptions. ​ For more information on why it is important to adopt kittens in pairs, you can check out the "Why Two Kittens Are Better Than One" blog post by Hannah Shaw, the Kitten Lady!
