Adoption Process

We are happy that you found our website and are thinking of adopting a cat from our shelter!

Our job as counselors and caretakers of our fur orphans is to help match them with the right type of household.  Perhaps you already have cats in your home, a dog, or young children.  Maybe you want a couch potato, or a youngster with lots of spunk.  That's why we're here - to insure we make the best match we can, for the cats happiness and for you and your family.

While we have successfully adopted cats in a single day, we also welcome you to visit our shelter several times and visit with our fur angels and get to know them.  We welcome visitors and prospective adopters who want to make multiple visits to be absolutely sure of their choice.  We will never try to rush you and are happy to have you enjoy our cats on site.  But we also have had great success doing same day adoptions and are confident of the studies done by national adoption agencies who have found that same day adoptions are as successful and
mutually bonded as longer process adoptions.  So if you, the prospective adopter, and our adoption counselor (and of course the fur orphan) are all confident of the match, then we will be happy to do a same day adoption.  Then you can adopt and take home your new fur child right away!

You may access our Cat Adoption Application here on this page (see link below).  You are welcome to fill out this form and either mail it to the shelter, stop by during our adoption hours with it,  fax it to us, or you may email it to us.


Our adoption hours are Monday - Friday from 3:00 - 5:00pm, and Saturday 1:00-4:00pm


We look forward to meeting you!

Foster Volunteers Needed!

Fosters Needed!    Foster Care: We need help this time of year. Too many little orphans come in without Mom, and they need a good deal of care for two to four weeks. You can truly be a lifesaver and make a contribution to your community. If you can help and you’re at least 16 years old, give us a call at 830-857-1616. We’ll be glad to teach you how to help these little fur angels.


Wish List

The Cat Shelter is always in need of the following:  Name brand canned cat food, blankets, and bedspreads, and cat carriers,   If you would like to donate an item, please drop it off at the shelter at 505 Saint Francis Street in Gonzales.  We also often need a handy-man type person who would like to donate their time for small repairs, yard work, and constructing cat condos!


We Are Honored!

FOGAS has been honored with a Cat Rescue Award for excellence in helping needy cats who just need a warm home and some love.  We are excited and humbled that found us to be an organization worthy of this recognition!  Thank you!
