Frequently Asked Questions
How many Poppy cats live at your shelter?
We currently have over 115 Poppy resident cats, many of whom
will live the rest of their lives with us at The Poppy Foundation.
How does a cat become a Poppy cat?
There are many ways our Poppy cats have come to live with us.
Some cats have been rescued from other shelters or from the streets of
Las Vegas, some have been left at the shelter or found as stray cats without
an owner. Unfortunately, we are not able to take in any more cats, because
most of our residents are special needs or have chronic medical conditions
and will require special care.
Do you have any kittens?
We typically do not accept kittens at The Poppy Foundation simply because we do not have the resources to provide care for young kittens. Kittens require attention and care almost round-the-clock and we do not have the resources to care for them. On the rare occasion that kittens find their way to us, we place them in foster homes to make sure they get the best care and socialization possible.
How do I adopt a Poppy cat?
Most of our cats will live the rest of their lives with us, but we do have a small group of cats who are adoptable! We require that potential adopters meet a volunteer or board member in person to discuss each cat's needs and their ideal fur-ever home. If you have fallen in love with a Poppy cat and are interested in making them part of your family, please speak to a volunteer or board member during our visiting hours, fill out an adoption form (here) and drop it off in person to 6620 Sky Pointe Dr.
I can no longer care for my cat or I have found a stray cat, can you take them in?
Unfortunately, we cannot accept any more cats at The Poppy Foundation. We are at full capacity and many of our cats have special needs or chronic medical conditions, so we must use all of our resources to care for them. Please check out Vegasanimalrescue.com for a comprehensive list of resources and rescues in Las Vegas.
