Cats Available for Adoption

I simply can´t resist a cat, particularly a purring one. ~ Mark Twain

Animals Are Not Toys!

Cats are intelligent, flesh-and-blood creatures, NOT TOYS! Happy Jack Cats believes each cat deserves a safe and secure home for its lifespan as a companion animal and family member. To that end, we consider a kitten's best interests first when homing.

Adoption Requirements

Considerable time and expense go into each one of our animals. The adoption fee of $50 does not cover the average amount we spend on each animal, which is $103.

Happy Jack Cats, Inc. screens all potential adoptive families before releasing an animal into their care. We reserve the right to deny applications that we deem unsuitable for the animal. Our adoptions are not awarded on a first come, first served basis, because our goal is to find the best fit for the kitten.

There are adoption requirements. You must...

  • fill out the Adoption Questionnaire
  • have the willingness and means to provide good care and necessary medical treatment for the animal
  • be 18 years or older
  • have ID showing your present address.
  • have the knowledge and consent of your landlord, if you rent
  • bring a pet carrier to pick up your animal
  • NOT declaw the animal
  • NOT rehome the animal or surrender it to another
          shelter, but return the animal to HJC
  • have a non-smoking home
  • meet any requirements that are specifically for a particular
          animal, e.g. no kids, indoors only, special care, etc

We'd like to get to know you and the home you have to offer one of our kittens a little better - would you mind filling out a brief questionnaire?

All dogs and cats currently in your residence MUST be spayed or neutered. If they are not, your application will be denied.

Petco Adoptions

Happy Jack Cats is a Partner with the PETCO Foundation, and as such can offer cats and/or kittens for adoption in the PETCO facilities at the Petco store at 3548 South Findley Ave., Boise, ID. and the Petco store at 3006 E. State St., Eagle, ID. Petco very generously lets us showcase our animals in these two stores.

The personnel at Petco cannot perform the adoption for you. One of our representatives must do that. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Please call Melissa at 208-477-1452 and she will arrange for someone from our organization to meet you in the store as soon as possible.

First Come, First Served

There is rarely a problem finding people to adopt our cats. In fact, often several people want the same cat/kitten. If you miss or are late for your appointment, the kitten WILL NOT be held for you and may be adopted by someone else. The kitten is not yours until the adoption fee has been paid. We would like to schedule appointments one hour apart, but personal schedules don't always allow for this. It is best to be on time.
