We'll be happy to arrange for you to meet any cat listed on either site!

Occasionally, Absolutely Purrfect will help families needing assistance finding homes for their pets. Although an Absolutely Purrfect volunteer may be the initial contact, these pets are considered private adoptions and Absolutely Purrfect is not responsible for anything other than the service of posting the pet.

Who We Are

Absolutely Purrfect is a 501 (c)(3) non profit rescue. We are a network of volunteers who have opened our homes as a temporary sanctuary for homeless cats and kittens rescued in Lehigh, Northampton, and Berks Counties.

We believe that every homeless cat - whether he has been abused or abandoned, or she is unwanted by her owner or a lonely stray - deserves a safe and loving "Forever Home," and it is our principal goal to help each and every one of them we rescue find one.

Adopting a friend

To begin the process of adopting your new feline friend from us, you'll first need to select him or her. You can do this by visiting our Berks county Petfinder website, or our Lehigh and Northampton county Petfinder website where you can browse photos and descriptions of our available fosters. Or you can visit us in person at our adoption day events, and meet your potential friend one-on-one.

Please note, however, that we do not generally allow same-day or out-of-state adoptions. Although we may occasionally permit such adoptions after we conclude a preliminary reference check, such cases are an exception, and not the rule. These restrictions provide us the time and logistics to do home visits, which are essential to ensuring a purrfect forever home.

Once you make your choice, you'll need to complete an application. To get an application, simply send an email to the contact designated on our Petfinder website for the cat in which you're interested, ask one of our representatives at an adoption day event, or download it right to your computer.

After we run preliminary reference checks, we'll let you know whether or not you're approved for the adoption, and work with you from there to complete the process of welcoming your new friend to his or her purrfect forever home.

Our Adoption Donation and Medical Care Package

Your adoption donation goes directly toward medical care for our rescues. Each of Absolutely Purrfect's foster cats receives the following health care prior to adoption:
  • Spay or Neuter
  • Distemper combo (FVRCP) Vaccination
  • Rabies Vaccination
  • Feline Leukemia/FIV testing
  • Flea & Tick Treatment
  • Worming Medications

    We medically evaluate all of our fosters before they are available for adoption. If any medical problem arises, it is addressed by our vets. We try our best to keep our fosters healthy, but we cannot guarantee they won't encounter health problems at some point in their life. Having a vet you trust is the most important step in maintaining your cats' health.

    Low Cost Spay/Neuter Programs

    If you have strays in your neighborhood, become part of the solution to end animal overpopulation: SPAY & NEUTER! There are several low cost spay/neuter programs in Berks and Lehigh Counties. These programs make it affordable and as easy as possible to have cats spayed/ neutered and vaccinated.

  • Dog & Cat Hospital's Low Cost Cat Clinic (Berks Co.): 484-336-6763

  • Peaceable Kingdom's Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic (Lehigh Co.): 610-432-2532

  • No Nonsense Neutering (Lehigh & Berks Cos.): 1-866-820-2510
