Adopt a Cat

All animals are vet checked before adoption. This usually includes dewormer, revolution (for mites and fleas) and vaccination. Adults are all spayed and neutered before adoption. FEES: Adult cats $75.00, Kittens $50.00 (+$210.00 deposit for female and $131.25 for male kittens toward spay and neuter*) *local adoptions (Bulkley Valley).

Adoption Procedure: Complete an adoption application online or download and return to NWAS. If you are unable to scan and return the form, print it off and send the completed form via snail mail (local residents) to Box 3064, Smithers, BC V0J 2N0. Our adoptions co-ordinator will then be in touch.

As a volunteer run organization we do not maintain regular hours where you can stop by to meet the animals.  All visits to the shelter are by appointment only, after an application has been filled out.  As all animals do not get posted to the website if we have approved applicaitons on file, we encourage you to fill out an applicaiton and tell us what you are looking for.  If such an animal comes into our care, we will be in touch.

Additional Info: Once adoptions are finalized, animals are  removed from the site. We operate on full-disclosure. If there are any health or behavioral concerns, we will let you know. Adoptions are very time consuming for our volunteers. Please respect their time and only contact us if you are quite serious about adopting an animal. Please complete the adoption form and return to the NWAS.

Barn Cats

Adopting a cat through the barn cat program can help save the life of a cat who may not have other options.However, the care of a barn cat is still a responsibility. You will be assuming care for the cat for its entire lifetime. In exchange for providing the essentials of food & water and shelter, your barn cat will earn its keep by helping to control the rodent population in your barn. Contact to see if any cats are looking for a barn home.
