Adoptable Cats

Alley Cat Allies’ adoptable cats are socialized cats and kittens. We do not have a shelter—our adoptable cats and kittens live in our network of foster homes until they find their forever homes! All of the cats have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and are up-to-date on all vaccinations.

You can apply to adopt a cat using our online form, or you can download an application to adopt and send it to Alley Cat Allies at:
Alley Cat Allies
7920 Norfolk Ave. Suite 600
Bethesda, MD 20814

Featured Cats: Twitter


Twitter is an affectionate 1-year-old torbie (tortoiseshell-tabby) female with a lot to say. It’s fitting that such a social cat came to us through Twitter, the social networking site. When writer and former child actress Mara Wilson met Twitter at the Atlantic City Boardwalk, she noticed the kitty was very friendly and not eartipped, so she shared a picture of her on Twitter and asked Alley Cat Allies to keep an eye out for the socialized cat. We scooped up Twitter, and got her spayed and ready to find a home. Twitter loves to cuddle and nap with people, and true to her name, she’s very chatty and wants to have the last meow.

Not on the East Coast? No problem! Alley Cat Allies is more than happy to facilitate transportation so that Twitter can make it home.
