The humane society of many counties and cities conduct fee-waived adoption programs where select animals, including kittens and cats, can be adopted free of charge. In December 2014, for example, the WHS waived fees for animals first sheltered in the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission.

The Tacoma and Pierce County Humane Society waives adoption fees for barn cats, or free-roaming stray cats that cannot be place in a home environment. The cats are free to adopt. They are already spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated and treated for parasites.

The local animal care center of some cities, such as New York, hold free adoption events for cats and other adoptable pets. The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals works together with nonprofit animal organizations, such as Maddie's Fund, to subsidize the adoption fees for select animals on participating local animal shelters. In 2014, Maddie's Fund and the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animal held the largest no-fee cat adoption event.
