ADOPT FROM PERRY’S PLACE

Welcome to Perry’s Place, Heaven on Earth’s no-kill cat sanctuary in North Hollywood.  We are thrilled you are considering adopting a cat or kitten.  Our team is here to make this process as seamless as possible.  Connect with us in-person or online, check out our adoptable cat profiles, learn about adopting from Heaven on Earth and find additional resources below.
You may be surprised to find that adopting a cat is a more involved process than you had imagined. The intent is not to frustrate you! Rather, everything we do is in the best interest of the cats in our care. Our goal is to help you find your perfect match and give them the best possible chance of finding a permanent, safe and loving home that meets their individual needs. Your cat may well be with you for 10-20 years; on average, the cost of companionship can be several thousand dollars over the lifetime of the cat, notwithstanding unforeseen vet bills. The questions we ask enable us to better assist you with matching your needs and desires with the needs of our available cats. Our process includes questions about your living situation, pet history, current pets, the type of cat you are looking for and the way for which it will be cared. We’re not just being nosy! Some of our cats are good with kids, get along with other pets and/or are appropriate for first-time cat owners. Others may have special needs, behavioral problems or would be more appropriate for an experienced cat owner.

In-person

  • Start the adoption process by visiting us at Perry’s Place or one of the weekly adoption events listed below. Please note the days and times Perry’s Place is open to the public.
  • We encourage you to fill out an online adoption questionnaire before you come to see us. It enables our small staff to process your application more quickly. If that is not possible, we will provide a paper copy of the adoption questionnaire when you arrive.
  • An adoption counselor will review your questionnaire, and if approved, they will work to match your needs and desires with our available cats.

Online

  • Check out our adoption FAQs and resources below to help with choosing the right cat or kitten for your family.
  • View our adoptable cats.
  • Fill out our online adoption questionnaire.
  • Once we receive your questionnaire, an adoption counselor will reach out to help with next steps. We may schedule a brief visit to your home to help you prepare for the arrival of your new feline family member.

All of our available kitties are now online!

You can also find them on Adopt-a-Pet and Petfinder!

ADOPTION FAQs

Which cat do I choose?

We recommend letting the cat choose you!  Some people come to us with a list of characteristics they want in a new cat (short hair, not too old, male, etc.) and end up falling in love with someone unexpected.  The most important factor to consider is the cat’s personality and the potential of compatibility for your lifestyle.  Does it get along with other cats?  With dogs?  Is it alright being alone during the day or does it always need company? Is it a lap cat or more independent?  We are familiar with our cats’ personalities and can guide you to a good match.  Decide on what personality traits matter most to you but keep an open mind.

What happens after I apply?

If you apply online, one of our adoption counselors will give you a call to chat about your application. If you apply in person, we will spend a few minutes chatting about your schedule and experience prior to introducing you to the eligible candidates.
The next step is scheduling a meet and greet at our sanctuary or PetSmart store. If all goes well, and your application is approved, you can take kitty home the same day. If you need some time to think about it, we can place a 24-hour courtesy hold on your kitty. We want to give you some time to think about it – it is a big commitment!  When you pick up your cat, you will be asked to fill out an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee. Be sure to bring a carrier!

How much does it cost?

 Adoption fees: Kittens six months and younger – $100.  Two kittens – $150.  Adult cats – $75. Seniors – $45

What else?

All of our cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  We test for FIV and feline leukemia.
We work diligently to place our cats and kittens in forever homes that stay forever homes.  However, every cat adopted from Heaven on Earth comes with our lifetime promise.  If for any reason, you can no longer care for your cat, he or she is always welcome to come back to Perry’s Place.  We are committed to helping our adopted cats throughout their lifetime and understand that circumstances sometimes change.
We do reserve the right to refuse the adoption.  If your application is not approved, we will do our best to explain the reason(s).  It is important to remember that a denial is not a rejection of you as a person; it is a refusal to place a cat in a situation that we do not feel is a good match or does not meet our policies.
Thank you so much for your interest in adopting one of our cats. We look forward to meeting you!
