Cats For Adoption

Jake's Place cat shelter and adoption center has an abundance of adoptable cats. Many of our cats were "scaredy cats" when first rescued; however, with time and lots of love and patience, the vast majority are now socialized and ready and waiting for a forever home. Click on the links to the left to be introduced to our cats. Some do have special needs, which are identified in their description. None of these needs are severe, and the Jake's Place volunteers will always be available to answer any questions you might have.
You may also want to visit a few of our felines at our adoption partner Tabby Town, McKinley Mall, 3701 McKinley Parkway, Blasdell, NY.

Our Boys

Featured are the Jake's Place adoptable male cats, all of whom are neutered. Most get along well with all the cats in the shelter. We have amazingly few disputes among our cats. However, some of these males would be best as the only male cat in a household, as the only pet of any type, with other cats but no dogs, or in a household without children. They will be identified as such in their description. These cats have histories as varied as any human, so they have different comfort levels depending on their specific past circumstances.


Our Girls

We currently feature our adoptable female cats, all of whom are spayed. With a very few exceptions, our females get along very well with the other cats. Even so, like the males, there are some who would do best in certain situations, and we will make every effort to match them to the home that suits their needs.


Our FIV+ Cats

Featured are our adoptable cats who are positive for the FIV virus (FIV+). This does NOT mean they are sick. It only means that, compared to FIV- cats, their immune systems may be somewhat compromised, making them more easily susceptible to infections and sometimes more resistant to treatment. With lysine in their diet and other prophylactic measures they can have a healthy and happy life. They cannot infect humans or dogs, but can pass the FIV virus to other cats if they bite. These cats would be ideal for a single pet household and make wonderful companions.

If you have questions about or are interested in any of our cats, please contact us by phone or email and a volunteer will be happy to assist you. If you are considering adoption, please complete and submit the Adoption Application and a volunteer will contact you to complete the adoption process.


He is a 3 year old male looking for his forever family.  He has cataracts in both eyes, which limit his vision.  The veterinary ophthalmologist believes that he can see shadows well enough to maneuver, as he gets around very well.  His foster family loves him very much and had hoped to keep Magoo forever, but as he got more comfortable with his surroundings, he developed aggressive behavior toward the other cats and dogs in the home.  He should be adopted into a home with no other cats or dogs.  Magoo is very playful and loves to snuggle with his human family members.  He does not like his movement restricted (likely an effect of his limited vision), so he is not a fan of being held, although he will sit in your lap for hours  Please reach out to HFC with any questions about Magoo.
