The Ark currently holds Safe Adoption Events (pre-application encouraged) at the San Juan Capistrano PetSmart on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-6pm, Saturdays 10am-5pm, and Sundays 11am-5pm. In advance of attending an event, we recommend that you APPLY ONLINE BELOW to save time and to get pre-approved as a qualified Adopter.
The Ark requires an adoption application, an adoption contract and an adoption fee of $175 for cats 1-year-old and over and $210 for kittens under 1-year-old. At times, and for certain breeds, the adoption fee may vary. All cats are altered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (young kittens may still be in the process of getting their shots and surgeries). Fiv/felv testing is only done if recommended by a vet partner.
All currently available Ark cats and kittens are listed below and are either at The Cattery inside the San Juan Capistrano PetSmart, where they may be seen in person anytime the store is open, or they are listed as "in foster" where they are living in a private home. To meet a cat or kitten in foster care, please call The Ark's main phone number at (949) 388-0034 or send an email to email@example.com, asking to schedule a "Meet & Greet" appointment with a particular cat or kitten.
Firefly is a female orange tabby kitten about 3-4 months old that suffers from FIP (feline infectious peritonitis), a viral disease that impacts young and immune compromised cats. Until just recently FIP was not considered treatable, however, new effective treatments are now available but are very expensive!
