Founded in May 1998, the Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is the Pacific Northwest's largest nonprofit, adoption-guarantee cat-only shelter. Our mission is to save the lives of homeless, unwanted, sick, and injured cats and to work with our community to provide feline expertise and quality programs and services for people and cats.

CAT takes in and finds homes for more than 2,500 cats and kittens each year; provides subsidized spay/neuter surgeries for approximately 1,500 publicly-owned cats (and spays/neuters all CAT cats and kittens prior to adoption); and provides information and resources to cat owners throughout the Portland Metro region and beyond. In 2015, CAT found a home for its 35,000th cat! CAT is a founding partner of the Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland (ASAP); working together over the past 9 years, ASAP partners have reduced euthanasia in the Portland metro area by 89% - making our community one of the safest for homeless pets!
