Introduction The Furever Home Adoption Center opened in October 2010 with a mission to relieve the suffering of homeless animals. Furever Home is a no-kill facility in Lancaster county. Our comfortable and homelike facility is a cage free environment where our animals are free to run and play together. Because of this freedom we are able to see and assess their true personalities, which assists us in finding the perfect furever homes for our cats. Matching a potential adopter with the best animal for their situation and lifestyle is one of our top priorities. The health and well-being of our animals is another priority. Because our animals interact with each other, each animal is blood tested for AIDS and Leukemia before being accepted into our facility. Prior to adoption, our animals are examined by a vet, de-wormed, treated for fleas if needed, given distemper vaccines, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Although our building is only zoned to house cats, we also work with other local rescues to help all animals in our community. We also host low-cost microchip clinics for cats and dogs to ensure lost pets are always quickly reunited with their families.

Furever Home Adoption Center is a 501c3 organization that relies solely on donations to continue our mission. 100% of your donations goes toward the care of our cats.
