FRIENDS is primarily a cat rescue/adoption shelter that occasionally home-fosters dogs in need of a new home. If you are interested in adopting a kitten or cat you can view our available animals at the link below for "Adopt-a-Pet". For inquiries about dogs, please call 530-927-9485.

This Agreement clearly states the responsibilities of the adopter and protects the animals. You can download a copy of the Agreement here. (Adoption Agreement)
4. Pay Fee
There is no adoption fee for S/N animals, but kittens require a $75 deposit each (State Law) --- refundable when S/N by a vet and proof shown to FRIENDS.
5. Take Your Pet Home
Happiness! Be sure to bring a clean cat carrier with you. We will not release an animal who is not confined for their safety.
(FRIENDS does not charge an adoption fee for our spayed and neutered animals, but work entirely on your generous donations to help us continue our work for the animals.)
