How To Adopt
Adoption Policies and Procedures

Cat Adoptions. People for Animals League makes every effort to properly match adopters with their feline companions. The adoption application is an important part of the process because it provides PAL with basic information on your household to help ensure a good match and a lifetime home.

To be considered for the adoption of a PAL cat, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age
  • Have the knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household
  • Have your landlord's consent to bring a cat onto the property if you rent
  • Understand that PAL has the right to refuse an application for any reason

Cat Adoption Fees:

Kittens - 8 weeks to under 6 months $125 (includes spay/neuter).
Adults - 6 months to 7 years: $80
Seniors - over 7 years: $50
Barn Cats: $25

A note on adopting kittens: PAL prefers to place kittens in pairs or in a home with another pet. Kittens require socialization, constant attention, and company. Adopting kittens in pairs offers the best possible environment for their social and emotional development. There is lots of information on the internet about the benefits of adopting kittens in pairs. All applications for kittens and cats are considered on a case by case basis.

Ready to Adopt?
Submit a Cat Adoption Application using our online submission form.

If the online form does not work, print, fill out, and mail the Cat Adoption Application Form to People for Animals League, c/o Sandy Graeff, 6 Kingsbury Road, Spencer, MA 01562.

Dog Adoptions. People for Animals League is primarily a cat shelter, but we do occassionally have dogs available for adoption. All of the dogs that we take in are fostered in private homes and are not at the shelter to be seen. Dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm/lyme tested, and wormed. Adoption fee varies depending on age. Visit the Dogs for Adoption page for more information or to submit a Dog Adoption Application.
