You must be 18 years of age to adopt a cat from Noah’s Ark. Declawing is Prohibited: When you adopt a cat from Noah’s Ark, you agree not to have the cat declawed, understanding that declawing is a painful amputation of the first joint of the cat’s toes.
If you would like to adopt a cat, an adoption counselor is available during shelter open hours. If you would like to schedule a visit outside of our regular hours, please call us at 641-472-6080 to schedule an appointment.
Our Adoption Application (in PDF format) may be completed at the shelter, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to 866-289-0897. Applications are processed in the order received. In order to hold the cat until the meet and greet, a completed, approved application must be on file. If you are traveling from out of town to Fairfield and desire a same day adoption, please submit your completed application at least one day in advance of your visit.
We want every adoption to be successful. In the event that you are unable to care for the cat you adopt, it is shelter policy that you return the animal to Noah’s Ark in Fairfield, Iowa.
All animal intake is by appointment only.
