Each year, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the
United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and
too few people consider adoption when looking for a pet.
Our animals have come to us for a chance at a happier life and a home for life. Some have been turned over from animal control. Many others are strays or victims of abandonment. Each one is waiting to find a new loving home.
Our kitties are raised in loving foster homes, so they are socialized, love people and have good potty habits. Some are already adjusted to busy households with dogs, other adult cats and children. Once they receive their spay or neuter surgery, they become residents of the Frisky Cat Cafe while waiting for adoption. The cafe is a great place to meet our kittens. You can play and interact with each of them so you can pick the perfect match for your family.
Our adoption fee is $130. The adoption fees that we collect help us provide food, shelter, important medical care and vaccinations for the animals. Each adoption fee includes the following for your new kitty.
Spay or neuter surgery
Microchip with free registration
Monthly flea, tick and parasite prevention
Tested negative for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia (FeLV)
The adoption application is designed to help us evaluate potential adopters. Small Lives Matter Kitten Rescue wants to ensure that the adopting family feels they are able to handle the great responsibilities that come with adopting an animal. Pet adoptions can place physical, mental, and financial burdens on a household, and we want to be sure that your family understands and is prepared to deal with these extremely important issues. Adoption is not first come-first serve. We adopt our animals to the best home based on the information you provide.
We get a lot on inquires. We try our best to respond to all applicants, but we are not always able to. Only two people are reviewing all of the applications and its very time consuming. Once your application is processed, you will be notified y email and may contact us for a visit.
The best way to find out the status of an animal you applied for is to check our website. If the animal is there, we are still reviewing applications. If the animal says “RESERVED”, we have selected an applicant and contacted them. When an animal is adopted, they are marked “ADOPTED” on our website and Petfinder. If the animal you applied for is adopted and you would like to apply for a different animal, please contact us and let us know. We would be happy to assist you!
Most of our available kittens are are residents at Frisky Cat Cafe located at 1092 S Ponce De Leon (US 1), St Augustine, Florida 32084. Walk ins are welcome. We recommend a making a reservation or calling ahead to make sure there is space if your party is more than 3 persons or you are visiting on a Saturday or Sunday. (904) 547-2940.

These are a few of our adorable cat and kittens who found their home for life. Not every kitty is pictured below. We have adopted hundreds just in the last year. Congratulations to all our beautiful babies who are adopted and thank you to those wonderful adopting families who made room for them in their homes.
