To complete an adoption after meeting your match, bring your adoption application to The Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County and pay your adoption fee and obtain your new cat's paperwork, then return to us at Met Vet.
Each adoption includes: Veterinary wellness examination, spay or neuter surgery, microchip with national registration, initial vaccines, pet care counseling, initial flea treatment, Feline Leukemia testing, cardboard cat carrier, collar and toy.
County Pet License is an additional fee ($5-$12) and may be purchased at Met Vet or via the county website.
If you adopt a Met Vet foster cat you will receive a $25 credit on your client account if you choose to bring your new cat to us for their free wellness examination!
One of the advantages to adopting an adult cat that has been in foster care is that you get to learn all about their personality and behaviors BEFORE you take them home!
Honey is a spayed, 3 year old black domestic short hair. She has lived indoors her whole life. Her previous owners lived a busy lifestyle and did not have much time for her. She's a little shy but is quickly warming up to us. She loves catnip, toys and is very affectionate. She would probably be okay with laid back dogs and a slow introduction to other adult cats. We think she would do best in a home with no children or older children who can practice patience and kindness. She would love to find a forever loving home soon!

She is spayed and doesn't have experience yet with other animals and would require a slow introduction. She would probably like a quiet home, we invice you to come visit this sweet girl today!

Meet our newest cat for adoption, Spirit! She's about 5 years old and is a tortie-point shorthaired cat. She was recently dropped off at the Humane Society as a stray and is looking for her forever home. Spirit is a little on the shy side but warms up quickly and loves to be pet. She had a small lump on her chest and the fluid was extracted for testing - the analysis results came back as it being most likely a benign cyst or seroma (a benign accumulation of fluid under the skin usually after a surgery or trauma). * Spirit has a medical waiver stating this information and that she will need to be monitored by her adopter's regular veterinarian.
