Cats looking for Forever Homes


COVID-19 Update:

1. We are please to announce that we have returned to most of our adoption centers in a limited capacity. You may once again see the cats in the adoption centres, however meet and greets will be limited and we may have reduced hours. Contact us if you would like to volunteer at an adoption centre.

2. During the pandemic, AVA is still conducting adoptions, but in ways that protect the health & safety of all those involved and maintaining physical distancing.  In addition to telephone screenings, we are conducting virtual “meet and greets” where possible, along with other safety measures. Contact us or apply now to learn more!


Unprecedented demand for adoptions:
Due to the overwhelming volume of applications we are receiving, a response to your application may be delayed. While we endeavour to contact applicants within 48 hours, a response may take up to a week. Please note that not all applicants will be contacted for a follow-up or screening. Thank you for your enthusiasm and understanding!


We know how tempting it is to meet a cat or kitten and immediately want to take it home. AVA strives to ensure the best fit for our cats and for your family, so before you come to the adoption centre and your heart melts, here are a few questions to consider.

Make some time to come to our adoption centre to meet the cats in person, and ensure that anyone who will be living with the cat(s) visits too.

Our cats and kittens are microchipped, dewormed, defleaed, vaccinated,  and neutered/spayed.

All kittens must be adopted with another kitten or go to a home with another young cat (learn more about our two-kitten policy).

  • Adult over 1 year: $175
  • Kitten or juvenile under 1 year: $200
  • Special breeds: Starting at $200
