Take a look at the cats that we currently have available for adoption and be prepared to fall in love! If you are interested in a meet and greet, please fill out our free application to get pre-approved to adopt. We will contact you within 24 hours of receipt, except on weekends and holidays.

The adoption application is the first step towards adopting one of our special fur-babies. The adoption process involves checking personal and veterinary references, as well as verifying with the SPCA that you have not been charged with animal cruelty. If you rent, we will contact your landlord to be sure that pets are allowed.


Kittens (up to 1 yo): $120
Adults: $85
Seniors (10 yo+): $45

Our adoption fees are very reasonable and cover approximately $300-500 in veterinary services. Depending on the age of the cat at the time of the adoption, the adoption fee will cover the initial FIV/FeLV combo test; initial treatment for fleas, worms, parasites, and ear mites; initial distemper vaccination; and possibly rabies vaccination.

Additionally, we try to ensure that all of our cats are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Adopters of kittens that are not old enough to undergo the surgery will be given a free spay/neuter certificate for one of our local participating veterinarians.

We accept cash, money orders, certified checks, Paypal, and credit cards for the adoption fee. Credit card payments will incur a $5 surcharge to help cover the credit processing fees. Unfortunately, we cannot accept personal checks.

Since we are non-profit, adoption fees and donations can be deducted from your taxes.


Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter is a foster based animal rescue. All of our adoptable cats begin their journey with us in one of our many foster homes located throughout Southern York County. We also have three satellite locations where our cats and kittens may be taken once they are available for adoption. Approved adopters can set-up meet and greet visits with any cats available for adoption whether they are in a foster home or at one of our satellite stores.
