 Adoption Center at the Pelham Manor Petsmart

Did you know we are a Petsmart Charities adoption partner? With covid we sadly had to close our Pelham Manor location. We are so thrilled to announce , we are back!  We have some old timers but new volunteers too! It’s such a rewarding experience watching cats loves change and go into loving forever homes! We can always use volunteers to take an AM or PM shift just once a week. We generally say 2 hours is enough time to play with the cats and clean litter boxes/cages  and feed them. If interested in volunteering and you are 18 or older , email us at or call Joan at (718) 671-1695 

Tips for the First 30 Days of Cat Adoption

   By Sara Kent (PetFinder)


Be prepared should be your mantra when bringing a new pet into your home. Cats are particularly sensitive to new surroundings and some may hide under a bed or in a closet for days or even weeks.

You can avoid pitfalls with your new critter and help him or her adapt more easily by following these guidelines:

Tips for the First 30 Days of Cat Adoption


Before You Bring Your Cat Home:

  • Cats are territorial, and coming into a new home leaves them feeling really uneasy. There’s all that unexplored space, and who knows what may lurk there. Do him a favor and provide a small area to call his own for the first few days or weeks. A bathroom or laundry room works well. Furnish the room with cat amenities, such as food, water and a litter box. You’ll want to spend time with your cat, so make sure there’s a comfortable place for you to sit as well.
  • Fill a litter box with one or two inches of litter and place it in his room where he can use it undisturbed. After all, everyone deserves a modicum of privacy when potting, and giving him that will help forestall litter box aversion.
