Most municipalities house stray or abandoned animals at animal control facilities where adoptions take place. City or county animal shelters and humane societies offer kittens for adoption. The Humane Society of the United States offers a national animal shelter listing on its website. Cat rescue groups also offer rescued kittens for adoption. Petfinder.org features a national directory of animal rescues.

Kittens adopted from these facilities are usually examined by a veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinated against transmittable diseases, and are spayed or neutered.

Contact local veterinary clinics, and ask about the availability of rescue kittens. Some clinics offer kittens for adoption or know of clients who have kittens available. Pet stores sometimes have adoption centers inside the stores where local rescue groups are allowed to bring adoptable animals.

Due to the natural breeding season of cats, young rescue kittens are most often available in the late spring to fall months. During these months, animal shelters and rescues have many young kittens available for adoption. Young kittens are more difficult to find during winter months.
