The Cat Adoption Team (CAT), founded in 1998, is the Pacific Northwest’s largest non-profit, feline-only shelter. CAT has its own full service veterinary hospital on-site.

What CAT Does: CAT’s mission is to work with the community and other animal shelters to save the lives of homeless, unwanted, sick, and injured cats and kittens by offering shelter, adoption, foster, hospice, spay/neuter, and veterinary services to end needless feline euthanasia in our community.

Over 73 percent of the felines in CAT's care are transferred from other animal shelters in the greater Portland-metro area. CAT will find homes for over 3,250 felines this year. CAT specializes in finding homes for perfectly wonderful and healthy kitties as well as those with special needs - FIV positive, with healing injuries, elderly, deaf.

About the shelter building: CAT’s shelter is an industrial building retrofitted as an animal shelter, including a full-service veterinary hospital. CAT cares for over 250 cats and kittens each day in the shelter.

Due to CAT’s tremendous year-over-year growth and the demand for further help by the community, a remodel to increase efficiencies is much needed. Winning this contest would enable CAT to expertly remodel this building to save more lives with a larger veterinary hospital; increase its ability to keep pets in the home with space for private, one-on-one counseling; boost shelter capacity with more free-roam rooms and kennel space as well as a more customer friendly floor plan.

As a 501(c)(3) publicly-supported charity, CAT relies on the support of the public and generous volunteers.

CAT: If only every shelter could be this cool

posted 7 years ago

If only there were more shelters in the world like C.A.T.! I love this place, and will always recommend them if someone is looking for a new fur-ever friend. Everyone is so dedicated!

Pros: They are a godsend to cats in need

Cons: None!

I love the C.A.T.

posted 7 years ago

The first time I went into the C.A.T. we had just planned to look around and check it out. We fell in love with the place as well as our first cat. We took him home right away. Since then we've visited many times to hang out with cats, and also ended up adopting a playmate for our first cat. All our friends and family that we have brought to C.A.T. say that it's the nicest, cleanest shelter they have been in. I believe it's very inviting, the staff really want to help out the cats and get them in good homes, and it's a nice place for the cats to stay while they are waiting for their homes. Go check it out for yourself!

Pros: Very inviting, clean, saves cats lives!

Cons: None, except of course any shelter is too small for the huge number of cats that need a home :(
