Making A Difference Through Adoption

Adoption applications are only considered for Kingston and Surrounding Areas. All Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative (SNKI) felines (adults and kittens) come from our managed cat colonies and all applicants receive mandatory home visits.  SNKI has an adoption committee of volunteers, who review all applications.  Sometimes, depending on the number of kitties we get in, the process can be lengthy; but we feel it’s worth it to ensure that our animals get to their forever homes.

Thanks to social media, our stories make an impact on a larger scale.  We reach people outside our community with huge hearts, but unfortunately, because we take our home visit responsibility seriously, it’s impossible to serve people outside our boundaries at this time.  Please accept our heartfelt thank you for considering us, we are positive that there are other great organizations in your area that could use your help.
