Adopting a FOHA Cat or Kitten?

We, of course, think this is a great idea. However, cat and kitten transitions into a new home can take a little time because they can be very skittish at first. Please review our recommendations on acclimating your new feline friend.

Surrender a Pet

We understand that the decision to surrender your pet is not an easy decision and is not to be taken lightly.

  • If your pet was adopted from FOHA, continue here for more information.
  • If your pet was adopted elsewhere, we do, on a limited case by case basis, consider accepting a surrendered pet. To make an inquiry with FOHA and for other ways to rehome your pet if FOHA is unable to assist at this time, see our page about surrendering a pet.
