We come from many places, from many situations. Some of us were abandoned outdoors, some were surrendered by people who could no longer care for us. Some of us lived with one family forever, until our person passed away. Some of us have never had a human family of our own. We all share something special; we have touched the hearts of all who knew, know, and will come to know and love us.  And we all want forever homes with humans who will love and cherish us.


Each Cat House cat or kitten has been spayed or neutered, tested for feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus, microchipped, and vaccinated against rabies and distemper/upper respiratory viruses. Our adoption fees are:

  • Adult cats, age eight months through six years: $80
  • Mature cats, age seven years or older: $60
  • Kittens, under eight months: $100
  • The adoption fee is reduced to $60 for cats or kittens of any age if you are age 60 or older. If you adopt a second cat or kitten within three months, the fee is half of the usual amount. We limit adoptions to within a 200-mile radius of Lincoln in most cases.

The first step towards bringing your new best friend home is to complete an adoption application.  A volunteer will call to interview you.  Before or after you complete an application, you’re also welcome to meet cats and kittens at our adoption facility at 3633 “O” St, open Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 – 8 pm and Sunday afternoons from 1:30 – 4 pm.

If you have an adoption-related question, please call 402-441-9593 or email adoptions@thecathouse.org.
