Adopting A Cat

Looking For A New Cat? - Getting a new cat or kitten can be an exciting time for your whole family, and we're here to help you not only find a great new kitten but also with any future care your kitten needs.

Our hospital provides full veterinary care, boarding, and grooming. The kittens and cats that you see available for adoption come from our clients in the Athens area that have found them and cannot care for them. Our goal is to provide great homes for great kittens.

All of the kittens have tested negative to Feline Leukemia Virus and have received the appropriate vaccines. They are also treated for intestinal parasites and fleas. Our veterinarian provides complete physical exams to be sure that the kittens are healthy and have good dispositions before they are adopted. All kittens are spayed/neutered before they are adopted. None of our cats are declawed and we do not adopt them to families that plan on declawing them.

The Cat & Dog Clinic is a licensed shelter through the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

If you are interested in adopting a kitten, please stop by The Cat & Dog Clinic or give us a call. Please note that the kittens are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and we usually do not "hold" kittens for potential adopters. Please be aware that those adopting must sign a contract in which they agree to care for the kitten, complete any needed vaccines, and will not declaw the kitten at any time. These treatments are to be done at specific dates at the cost of the new owner .

Surrendering a Kitten

The Cat & Dog Clinic is a no - kill adoption center, so we have room for new kittens when others are adopted out. We do not accept dogs for adoption.

Who We Are

Cats Deserve Their Own Vet - After years of treating cats like small dogs, veterinarians now recognize that cats face many unique medical problems and therefore require special medical care. At The Cat & Dog Clinic, we also believe that cats deserve their own place -- that is why we reserve Tuesdays and Thursdays for CATS ONLY. In fact, we like to think of ourselves as the vet clinic your cat would choose.

The Cat & Dog Clinic, previously Classic City Cat Clinic, was the only full-service veterinary hospital in the Athens area just for cats since 1996. In December of 2008, The Cat & Dog Clinic opened its doors to canine companions. Dr. James Brousse and the entire staff of The Cat & Dog Clinic have continued to strive to provide the absolute best care available for cat and dog patients in all life stages.

Our services include feline and canine medicine, dentistry, surgery, wellness care, grooming, and luxury cat boarding (dog-free, of course). Call us at 706-613-7877 today for more information.
