Good news!


We are open for adoptions again Wednesdays, 4-6 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. PLEASE READ these important changes to our adoption procedures. 

We are open only for people interested in adopting a cat or kittens. In order to come into the shelter to adopt, you must have an application on file and been pre-approved to adopt from PFC. Applications for specific cats are no longer being accepted, but once you have been pre-approved for adoption, you are welcome to come to the shelter during adoption hours to meet our cats.

Please fill out our adoption formOnline applications are also available via a link on our Petfinder page, our Facebook page or by entering https://forms.gle/eKS2p2MqfBtbtYdX7 in your web browser. Alternatively, an application may be picked up at the shelter during adoption hours. It can take up to one week to be pre-approved and you will be contacted via email.


Lost Cats

If your first attempts to locate your lost cat are unsuccessful, it is time to spread the word as far and as fast as you possibly can. Make up posters with name of the cat, a photo and/or description and LOST CAT in letters as large as you can make them. Be sure to include your phone number, email and the location where the cat went missing. Display posters around your neighborhood and in local businesses. Make sure to notify vet offices and shelters like People for Cats, since stray cats may be brought there. Also, contact your local Animal Control Officer since people might report finding or seeing a stray cat.

Lost cat ads may be placed in the Enterprise and Cape Cod Times free of charge and reach a large number of people. Lost cat flyers should be posted on the following Facebook pages: your personal page, People for Cats page, Lost & Found Pets page in your town, Cape Cod Missing Pets, Cape Cod Missing or Lost Pets and Helping Lost/Found Pets of Cape Cod Get Back Home. Be sure to include your town and contact information and then check those pages frequently, as new information about found cats may appear at any time.

If your cat is microchipped and you have registered the microchip, your chances of getting him/her back safely are much better than the average return rate. Of the stray cats turned into shelters, only about 2% ever get back to their families. On the other hand, 20 times as many microchipped cats get home safely if they are properly registered. Imagine if they were all microchipped and registered, then that figure would approximate 100%!
