Cat adoption knoxville TN
The Stray Connection is a program dedicated to rescuing stray cats and kittens and is structured to ensure that all cats go to good homes. By adopting a cat from the Stray Connection you will be supporting our caring, no-kill organization and making room for one more homeless cat. We are always looking for safe, loving homes for the many homeless cats and kittens we are asked to take in.
Stray cats and kittens are housed in temporary foster homes until a loving, responsible, permanent home is found. There is no time limit on how long animals can stay in foster care. They stay until they are adopted. The Stray Connection rescues and adopts about 150 cats and kittens each year that may have otherwise been euthanized.
All of our animals receive high quality veterinary care. Before adoption, all cats and kittens are tested for feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline aids (FIV). They are thoroughly examined by a veterinarian and treated for internal parasites and fleas. Our adoption fee also includes the necessary distemper and rabies vaccines, as well as the spay or neuter.
All of our animals go to their new homes healthy and well-adjusted.

Volunteers are needed to help at weekly adoption fairs. We set up every Saturday at the PetsMart on Morrell across from West Town Mall from 1-4 pm. Volunteers are needed to interact with the public and the cats. Most individuals volunteer one Saturday a month. Our schedule is very flexible. Transportation to and from the store is also needed.
Hi We're Bacall & Bogey!
Bacall & Bogey are cute short haired white tabby kittens about 12 weeks old. Bogey is male, while Bacall is female. Bacall is also a polydactyl with extra toes on her front feet. They LOVE everyone as soon as they meet them. They are VERY playful and active. They love to play with toys or other cats and are never bored. They like to be held and to snuggle. They get along well with cats, and I think they'd be great with dogs and kids. They are negative for feline leukemia and aids, had two distemper vaccines, been wormed, had advantage for fleas, and been vet checked and neutered. Additional vaccines included in adoption fee. May be adopted separately or as a pair (discount for two!) If interested in these cutie pies, please contact Holly at 865-671-4564 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Potential adopters are required to complete our application before adoption.
Our adoption fee is $125 for cats less than 6 months old, and $75 for cats more than 6 months old. Adoption fees for exotic, unusual, or pure bred cats (e.g. Himalayans, Siamese, Main Coon cats) may be higher. The fee includes testing for feline leukemia and aids, the series of distemper vaccines, the rabies vaccines, wormings, advantage so they are flea free when you take them home, a veterinary exam, and the spay or neuter. Microchipping is available for an additional $45. The adoption fee is waived for qualifying adopters interested in one of our sponsored cats.
At the time of adoption, adopters must sign a contract indicating their willingness to obtain all remaining vaccinations, treatments, and spay or neuter. If a placement doesn't work out (e.g., a family member discovers he/she is allergic), the animal is returned to the Stray Connection and re-adopted.
