Does Kriser’s Take Cats?

While Kriser's does hold adoption events throughout the year, they do not take cats from owners. If you find yourself in a position where you need to rehome your pet, there are other options available. Some are better than others, so it's important to do research first.

How To Rehome A Cat 

When you bring a pet into your home, it's a lifelong commitment. Litter box issues, behavior problems, and other common reasons for surrendering a cat can usually be resolved in a way that allows your cat to stay in your home. 

If you've tried everything and still need to rehome your pet, here are your options:

  • Surrender To A Shelter: Depending on where you live, surrendering to a shelter should be a last resort. Some shelters still have high euthanasia rates. All of these facilities really want to help animals, but they are so overwhelmed by owner surrenders that they don't have space—and that leads to more animals being euthanized. 
  • Surrender To A Rescue: Private rescues do their best to help the animals in their care, but they too are often short on space. If you can find a good rescue that agrees to take your cat, this could be a good option.
  • Rehome Your Cat Yourself: The best option is to find your cat a home yourself. This gives you complete control over where your cat will go, so you'll know he's with the right family. It might take a little longer to find the right home, but your cat deserves a second chance, and this is the best way to be sure he'll get it. 

Take advantage of resources available to help with the rehoming process. One example is the Rehome website where you can create a pet profile, find expert advice, and much more.
