All cats must go home in a cat carrier. You may purchase a cat carrier in our boutique or you may bring your own with you.

In addition to the animals available at our Soffer and Fine Adoption Center, we have cats and kittens available for adoption at various Pet Supermarket stores located throughout Miami-Dade County (location details). Please check the location of the cat you are interested in before applying as Pet Supermarket adoptions must be completed entirely onsite.
