Adopting A Friend

All animals at Second Hand Purrs are given a veterinary exam before arriving at the shelter, and the following procedures are included in the adoption fee:

Tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV

Distemper Booster

Deworming preventative

Flea bath

Ear mite treatment, if needed

Stool tested

Nail trim

Spayed or neutered (if 6 months of age or older)

Rabies Booster (if 6 months or older)


Our adoption process:

Our cats and kittens are $100 for one and $160 for two cats (cash at time of delivery). Adopters must be at least 21 years of age. All of our cats have been tested for FIV (Feline AIDS) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia), and have had their stool tested for the existence of parasites (although we cannot guarantee there are absolutely no parasites since they may not be shedding at the time of testing). We keep the cats and kittens up to date with any boosters they may need. We spay or neuter all cats and kittens over 6 months of age and they receive their first rabies booster at that time as well. You would need to come in, pick out who you would like to adopt, and fill out a form. We then call your vet for their records on your animal(s) and do a courtesy background check to make sure there are no serious issues. Once you have been approved by the board, one of the volunteers will schedule a pick up or come and deliver the cat(s) or kitten(s) to you (depending on the personality and situation of the cat/kitten).

All adoptions must be in the State of Wisconsin. We will deliver up to 50 miles from Milwaukee.

We are open to the public on Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please come visit our residents and we will help you make a purrfect match!
