The adoption process
Please view our available pets online or visit the Adoption Center, located at 910 South Washington St. Grand Forks, ND 58203 (Map)
During your visit, our adoption team members will assist with the meet and greet between you and your potential pet, and also help determine who would be a good match for you and your family. Once you’ve made your decision, our adoption team will finalize the process. COFAS adoptions are done on a first come first serve basis.

Working Cats Program
Our Working Cats Program has been designed to allow less socialized cats to barter their rodent catching skills for room and board under the supervision of an understanding caregiver on farms, warehouses, shops, as well as country backyards.
