Some of our cats are always available for viewing at the Critter Cottage located at 7205 Thornapple River Drive, Ada. Visiting hours at the Critter Cottage are Tuesday-Thursday 10-6 and Friday-Saturday 10-3. The Critter Cottage is staffed by volunteers. Occasionally, a scheduling conflict may occur. If you are making a special trip to the Critter Cottage to visit us, we recommend you call (616) 682-4855 to confirm that we are open as scheduled.
If you see a pet listed that you are interested in please visit Vicky's Pet Connection and visit "Apply for Adoption". Only fill out an application if there is a specific animal you are interested in and you are ready to take the cat or dog home. If you would like a little assistance in choosing a cat, you can fill out an application and we will be happy to guide you in that process. We will set up an appointment for you to meet the cat or dog you're interested in only after an application has been filled out and approved.
If you do not see an animal you're interested on our available pet list check out the animals waiting to be adopted at the Kent County Animal Shelter, or Focus on Ferals.
