Adoption Fees help pay for the medical cost of the pet you adopt. Each cat and kitten we rescue and decide to foster, average about $200 in total medical expenses before we place them for adoption.

Adoption fees for cats ($40/2 for $60) and kittens ($50/2 for $75 under 6 months): Includes free checkup, feline vaccinations, worming, rabies vaccination, felv/fiv test, and spay or neuter.

Paws Patrol has no central facility, but relies on volunteers to house and socialize kittens and cats prior to offering them for adoption. Friendly cats are spayed/neutered, receive their first feline vaccinations along with a check-up by a licensed veterinarian, and then are ready to be adopted into permanent homes.

Prospective adopters will be required to complete an application, pay a nominal fee to cover the cost of the spay/neuter, and participate in a screening process before the adoption is complete. Paws Patrol is available for any questions and follows the adoption for a period of one year.

Paws Patrol also offers a Seniors Program whereby qualifying seniors and disabled may adopt free of charge. Paws Patrol will also provide food and medical care for cats adopted under this program when needed. Cats must be at least 6 months old

If you are Active Military, adopt a cat for 1/2 the current adoption rate, and in case of transfer or deployment, Paws Patrol will always take the kitty back and find another home.

Adoption Fairs are held on a regular basis and available cats can be viewed at Petco in Sahuarita 7 days a week, The Dog House in Green Valley Tues.-Fri. (9am-4:30pm), Sat. (9am-2pm) or on

We adopt anywhere in Southern Arizona.

Paws Patrol wants to give seniors and the handicapped an opportunity to have a cat or kitten as a companion pet at little or no cost to them. This program provides our community’s senior and handicapped population with pets who offer affection and unconditional love. In addition, many wonderful, tame and socialized cats will have loving homes.

Seniors age 65 or older, and handicapped persons of any age, may qualify to adopt one cat free of charge.

  • The person must be physically and mentally capable of caring for an indoor cat.
  • All members of the household must be at least age 50.
  • Paws Patrol will spay or neuter the cat, and have shots up to date.
  • If necessary, Paws Patrol will assist with the cost of food and vet care for the cat.
  • If the person can no longer care for the cat due to illness or death, the cat must return to Paws Patrol.
  • Cats must be at least 6 months old

Paws Patrol reserves the right to visit the cat, and in case of neglect, take the cat back.
