Adoption Hours and Locations
OAR's shelter is open on Thursdays from 6-8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4 pm. You can come meet the cats and kittens at our shelter anytime during these adoption hours. If you fall in love with a cat or kitten on our site and want to visit him or her at another time, please contact us and we can set up an appointment.
OAR's shelter is located at 5619 Orlando Place, Cincinnati, OH 45227.
OAR cats and kittens can also be seen at PetSmart in Oakley, 3401 Alamo Avenue, throughout the week and on weekends. Volunteers will be available every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 pm at PetSmart to answer questions about the cats. We also have several cats at Petco in West Chester, just minutes from I-75 off the Cincinnati Dayton Rd Exit at 8215 Highland Point Drive, WC 45069.
How to Adopt
We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and microchipped. The adoption fee is $50. Because we like for our cats to go home in pairs, we have a standing 2 for 1 adoption special -- you can adopt 2 cats for one fee of $50. Meet some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We do require a phone screening before an adoption so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take a cat or kitten home that day, fill out and submit the application at least a day beforehand so we can pre-approve your adoption.
As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw the cats, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption. These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.
