Adopting from Facilitate Rescue


"Traditional" Adoption

This means that your cat or kitten will stay with a foster family until they are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, treated for fleas, de-wormed, and, in most cases, microchipped. Once they are healthy enough, they will be ready to go to their forever home.



You can reserve a kitten that is too young to leave our care by completing the adoption application and the foster-to-adopt application and submitting a $50 non-refundable deposit.  When the kitten is old enough, usually 10 weeks, the foster-to-adopt process begins.

This is when kittens are not old enough for spaying or neutering. As part of this process, the kitten would be placed in the prospective adopter's home after being weaned and socialized. Once the kitten weighs around 4 lbs or is 4 months old (whichever comes first), it will undergo spaying or neutering and receive the necessary vaccinations. The adoption will be finalized once this procedure is complete, and the kitten can officially become the adopter's pet.

Criteria for Adopting from Facilitate Rescue:

  • To adopt a pet, you must be at least 18 years old.

  • If you have pets already, please provide their veterinary information on the application form. We believe in regular veterinary care and keeping all pets up-to-date on vaccinations. Additionally, all pets in your household must be spayed or neutered.

  • If you rent your home, please check your rental agreement for any pet restrictions. If you belong to an HOA, the same may apply regarding the number of pets you may have.

  • On occasion, we may require a home visit, and all applicants must be willing to have a meet-and-greet or home visit if necessary.

  • We understand that sometimes circumstances change, and there are things out of your control. If you are no longer willing or able to care for a cat adopted from Facilitate Rescue, please return the cat to us. It is our responsibility to rescue them from the shelter, and we will take them back into our care and find them a new home.

We are a 100% Spay/Neuter Rescue!

Facilitate Rescue is an organization that aims to address the significant stray cat problem in Harnett County and other parts of North Carolina. As part of our efforts, we ensure that all the adopted cats and kittens are spayed or neutered before their adoption is finalized. In addition, we require that other cats in your home must also be spayed or neutered. This is our way of promoting responsible pet ownership and preventing the overpopulation of cats in our community.

We Believe Pets are Family and they Should Be Provided a Safe Space to Live!

Most cats and kittens under our care are usually from the shelter or found as strays. They often come from the dangerous environment of the outdoors and are placed in an equally scary environment of a noisy animal shelter. We place them under the care of our network of foster homes as quickly as possible so they can be in a safe, loving environment and become socialized. Our policy is to adopt our cats to households that intend to keep them as indoor-only pets, as we want to ensure that they continue living in a safe environment. Cats that have access to the outdoors tend to have shorter lives due to predators, disease, traffic, and humans who aren't very nice. Although there are rare exceptions to this rule, we generally ask that our cats be indoors only.

Purrfect...just as they are!

We want to ensure the safety and well-being of all cats adopted from our rescue, so we have a strict policy against unnecessary surgeries such as declawing. As a part of our adoption agreement, we require that you confirm your understanding of and intention to comply with this policy. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our furry friends happy and healthy!
