Support Us

We love it when you adopt cats, but we know that not everyone can. That's okay! You can support us in other ways.

1) Can't adopt? Foster!

A shelter environment is not a good environment for most cats. They are often confined to cages, and it can be loud and scary. The truth is, cats that don't do well in the shelter are at a higher risk of euthanasia. Foster parents give cats a chance to blossom while they wait for forever homes. If you have a little space in your home and heart, you can give one of the Capital Cats a second chance. Contact us at to learn more.

2) Can't foster? Donate!

Your donations help support the care of the cats and kittens in foster care. Recent expenses have included amputation for a kitten with a broken leg, ear surgery for a young cat diagnosed with tumor of the inner ear, and kitten formula and medical treatment for a litter of kittens with complications from an upper respiratory infection (including visits to the veterinary eye doctor!). Capital Cats has no paid staff, your tax-deductible contribution will only be used for food, medicine, and veterinary expenses of the cats in our care!

For additional donation options, please visit the Donate page.

3) Can't donate? Volunteer!

The Capital Cats are thankful for volunteers! Because they have no thumbs, they need drivers to bring them to and from adoption events and even just someone to sit with them at adoption events to help introduce them to potential adopters. There are many ways to help, and we can work with you to find something that fits your schedule. Contact us at

4) Can't volunteer? Like, Follow, Share!

It only takes a second to "like" us on Facebook (see buttons above!). Keep following us to see stories about our adoptable cats, Capital Cats that have found their forever homes, interesting cat-related knowledge, and updates about issues important to DC-area cat-lovers. Then, share posts to help us increase the number of possible adopters who know about us. The more people who see these cats, the more cats find homes quickly.

Finally, tell your non-Facebook friends about our cats. You can use the following links (or, tell them in person!):
