Every homeless cat deserves the opportunity to find a loving, well-suited fur-ever home and family.

Visitors discovered whether cat adoption was right for them, and learned what’s involved in the adoption process, and met cats available to adopt, in the Adoption Zone in 2023.

Rescue groups and shelters exhibited at the 2023 Festival, with many bringing along cats looking for a fur-ever home right now. By visiting the zone at the Festival, you helped to raise awareness of cat rescue which in turn increased the number of abandoned and homeless felines placed in well-suited loving homes. Visitors also had the chance to ask questions and get to meet some beautiful kitties looking for a place to call home.
