A non-profit, no-kill cat rescue and adoption agency for the Greater Kansas City area.

Q: Where is Purrfect Pets located? 
​A: Our adoption center facility is located within the Oak Park Mall. We are in the lower level, store #50-A, near the entrance to Dillards South. The address is 11425 West 95th Street, Overland Park, Kansas 66214.

Q: What are your hours? 
​A: We are open 7 days a week. On Monday-Thursday, our hours are 12-6pm. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, our hours are 12-5pm.

Q: What is your adoption process? 
​A: When you find a cat or kitten that you like, you will need to fill out a pre-adoption application. This form will be reviewed to determine if the adoption is a good match. If approved, an adoption fee is required. Often, the cat can go home with you the same day, though there are exceptions.

Q: What are your adoption fees? What does it include?
​A: The cost of adopting a cat depends on the breed and the age, but usually range from $85 to $145. The adoption fee includes a health screening, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, parasite treatment (if needed), FeLV / FIV testing, and a free follow up visit with a participating veterinarian.

Q: What if it doesn't work out with my new pet? 
​A: If your cat or kitten doesn't seem to be the right match for your home, or if circumstances arise in which you can no longer care for the animal, we are unique in that we always take our cats back, if necessary.

Q: Are you a no-kill shelter? 
​A: Yes. Purrfect Pets embraces a zero-euthanasia policy, which means that no cat is put to sleep due to health, space, adoptability or age. Our cats stay in our care for as long as it takes to get them adopted or placed in a more suitable foster situation.

Q: Do you take donations of sheets, blankets, food, litter, etc? 
​A: Yes we do! Please refer to our wish list of much-needed supplies.

Q: I love animals. What can I do to help Purrfect Pets? 
​A: We love animals, too! And we rely exclusively on volunteers to help us care for our cats and kittens. If you would like to donate, become a volunteer or foster provider, we want to hear from you! Please refer to our Foster/Volunteer page, or contact us for more information. 

Q: How do I relinquish a cat? 
​A: Please visit the Contact Us page to call or send us a message. There is a surrender fee required to help us cover the cost of caring for the animal.

Q: Should I declaw my cat? 
​A: Please do your research and educate yourself on declawing - a painful surgical procedure that has long-lasting detrimental effects on cats. Declawing is the amputation of all or part of a cat's toe bones and the attached claws. (If performed on a human being, declawing would be like cutting off each finger at the last knuckle.) Once these claws have been removed, cats can no longer perform their natural stretching and kneading rituals. They become weaker as they age and may experience debilitating arthritis in their backs and shoulders. Furthermore, cats without claws have lost their first line of defense and therefore live in a constant state of stress. They may become "biters" because they can no longer use their claws as a warning. Declawing can also lead to issues with using the litterbox. There are several alternatives to declawing, and we would be delighted to talk to you about these more humane options!
