Fell in Love?
Here's how to Adopt.

We partner with Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control to find each cat their forever home.

The adoption process is done online and can be completed in as little as a few hours. Below are all the recourses you may need to complete this process.

Step-By-Step How to Adopt

 1. Book a reservation to meet the kitties at the café and find the cat that’s right for you.


2. Fill out and submit our adoption application. The application must include the specific cat(s) that you are applying for, with their name and ID number. You may apply for multiple cats, and adoptions are approved on a first come first serve basis.


3. Your application will be reviewed by FWACC and you will receive an update within a week from the shelter. Please keep in mind that Black Forest Cat Café does NOT make decisions on the adoption process, and all application questions must be discussed with Animal Care & Control.

4. Once you receive approval from the shelter, you can bring home your new friend! Our cat pick-up times are Wednesdays and Sundays from 4:30 to 5:30 PM.


Please Note:

We absolutely recommend meeting the cats first to make sure they are the right fit for you before applying. Check here on petfinder to see our current available cat café residents before you come to visit!
