When you adopt from Friends For Life Cat Rescue, you are only taking home a new member of the family, but you are becoming a part of ours.  We take our adoptions very seriously. We require an in person meeting and an informal discussion to make sure that there is a perfect match between you and the cat or kitten that is coming into your life.  If you see a cat or kitten in Petco/PetSmart or online, please call our rescue phone number (240) 818-3688 to discuss whom you would like to bring into your home.  We do host weekly adoption events at the Petco on Rt. 40 in Frederick, MD,  and at the Petsmart off Rt. 26 in Frederick, MD.  If you find the right cat(s) or kitten(s) for you, adoption can be a same day process.  Adoption fees are $150 for one cat or $275 for two.
