Adult cats have their destructive kitten years behind them and are calm companions for children and seniors. With a lifespan of 15 to 20 or more years they will be a cherished member of your family for a long time. And, best of all, you will truly be saving a valued life!

Please consider giving one of our seniors (or any of our other cats) a loving home. Any adult cat one year or older can be adopted for only $50!

The cats at our shelter have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and are already house trained.

Upcoming Petco adoption days:

Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sundays from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Petco is located at 825 Brevard Road in Asheville (across from the Biltmore Square Mall).
