Adoption Process, Locations and Screening Form

Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our wonderful kittens or cats. We have invested a lot of our time, energy and resources to offer healthy felines for adoption.   We believe that the only solution to the pet overpopulation problem is spaying and neutering.  Therefore, we look for families who share this philosophy and spay and neuter their pets.  In addition, as we have an ongoing relationship with our adopting parties, so we look for families with whom we find it easy to work.

All adopters must complete a Screening Form. Y ou only have to complete one application per househo ld, even if you are adopting two cats.  If we receive multiple applications for a cat, we will process them at the same time and choose the best fit for the cat, which may not be the first application. Here is our adoption process.

1. Submit Application (Must be over 21 years of age.)

Please go to - Screening Form to expedite the adoption process. Management company/landlord's name, number and website of apartment complex or housing development, must be provided if you rent. If your ownership of the property does not show on the county records (law enforcement, etc.) please email proof of your ownership of the residence. Please note: applicants who submit an incomplete screening form may not be considered for adoption or it will delay the processing. Each question must be completely answered to the best of your ability. If we can't verify the information, will cancel the adoption process.

2. Interview

We may contact you by telephone or email to go over your information.

3. Home Check

We may do a home visit. Refusal to permit us to visit your home at any time during the adoption process will cancel the adoption process.

4. Preliminary Approval

The next step is to set up a meet and greet by appointment.

5. Meet the Pet

During the meet 'n greet, based on the interaction with the cat(s), our trained volunteers will determine if the adoption can be finalized. We ask that if you have small children or are married or have a significant other, please bring them with you so we can see how they interact with the cat(s).

6.Sign the Contract

Contract Our Contract is digital so you will be asked to complete it either before you meet the cat(s) or after you have met the cat(s). Photo identification must be made available for all adoptions.

7. Pay Fee

Our adoption fees usually range from $100-$150 per cat(s). We may, at our discretion, change the fee.

All the information on your application will be confirmed.  Since we permit our cats to go home the same day and rental agents, HOA and veterinarians’ offices are usually closed during adoption times, should any information be inaccurate, we will arrange to peacefully pick up the cat and your adoption donation will be considered a tax-deductible donation from you to Candy’s Cats.

We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone for any reason at any time without having to provide a reason.
Please bring your own carrier to take your adopted cat or cats home as we do not put them in cardboard carriers and do not provide carriers at our adoption locations

Candy's Cats Adoption Cottage


Candy's Cats Adoption Cottage is where the kitties hang out in a comfortable environment located at:
307 W. Main Street
Apopka, FL 32712


Coming from the turnpike area (East Florida, West Florida, South Orlando area)

Take the turnpike north to 429 towards Apopka.  When you get on 429, look for Exit 30 414 Maitland / 451 Apopka exit.  Take that exit to the 451 - Apopka exit.  It will take you to a light at 441 (Orange Blossom Trail).  Turn right onto 441, which is "Main Street".  

Drive past the light at Bradshaw and as you slow down you will see a Family Dollar and a Valvoline on your right side.  We are on the opposite side of the street, in a shopping center behind Jim's Goldsmith & Pawnshop, a music store, Lenelle's Pet Grooming.  

If you drive past the driveway you will be at Robinson Restaurant and will have to turn around to come back.  We are situated behind Jim's Goldsmith just down the little road.  When you peer down the road, you will see our flower boxes on the railings and our little Adoption Cottage is right there.

Parking is on your left when you come in.  (There is a covered parking area but we aren't allowed to park there.) 

We have kitties here by appointment with an approved application.  We'd love to see you.
