Carissa's Story

Adult cats may be calmer than kittens, but make no mistake, they love to channel their inner lion by alternating between long naps and ferocious “hunting” sessions of their toy mice. Some prefer a nice lap to nap on and others prefer to be loved from a distance. Each one has a very special, unique personality and it is a joy to see their habits unfold in a new home. If you’re looking to add more gentle cuddles and playtime to your life, an adult cat could be your perfect fit!

Meet Carissa

Carissa can’t wait to meet you!

If you’re interested in adopting this pet, there are few steps you must complete before scheduling an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center:

1. Please start by taking our ComPETibility Quiz to make sure they’re a good fit for your home. Your ComPETibility Score will help you compare your home to their needs!

2. After completing your ComPETibility Quiz, you will be emailed a link to complete your Adoption Application.

3. Finally, schedule an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center! During your appointment, you’ll be able to meet all currently adoptable animals at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center and walk through the adoption process with our staff and volunteers. Appointments are not required but encouraged for a more efficient visit.

Please note that while we can’t place holds on adoptable animals for your scheduled appointment, there are always plenty of homeless pets looking for a home! If you don’t meet the perfect pet during your first visit to the Adoption Center, please feel free to schedule another appointment.

Want another way to spend time with our adoptable (or soon-to-be-adoptable) pets? Consider fostering.
