Adopt Today!

The Hermitage has so many amazing kitties available for adoption! We are also working to find homes for our special needs kitties, those with FIV, FeLV, diabetes and allergies and our senior kitties. If you are interested in adopting one of our wonderful cats, please fill out the application. Our adoptions department will process it, and contact you shortly. We will contact your references, and landlord (if applicable).

All cats/kittens adopted from The Hermitage have been spayed/neutered, are current on vaccinations and have been microchipped.

If you have questions about our adoption process, or specific cats, please call Julianne Gathers at 520-571-7839 or email [email protected]

Our hours for adoption tours are Tuesday through Saturday, from 10AM-5PM.

We also hold Adoption Events at a Petco location one Saturday a month. Check our Events Calendar for the schedule.


Kittens: $115 (2 for $200)
Adults (1-6 years of age): $80 (2 for $130)

How does the adoption program work?

Come to the shelter between 10AM and 5PM Tuesday-Saturday. (Except New Year’s, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day).

You will fill out an adoption application. You may also fill out an application on line prior to visiting the shelter to expedite the application process. We will ask about current and past pets, your current living situation and veterinary information. We also ask for references of people who know how you are with animals who will be willing to vouch for you. You will be given a guided tour, during which you are introduced to the cats and have time to bond with them.

If you rent or lease, please bring a copy of your lease that shows you are allowed to have animals and proof of payment of required pet deposits/rent, or a note from your landlord and be ready to have us call the landlord for approval.

A background check will be run, persons with a history of violence, sexual abuse, and animal abuse will be denied for adoption.
