Cat Adoption

Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary is a safe-haven near Charleston, SC providing love and care – and, when needed, a forever home – to over 200 animals.

When you adopt a cat from Hallie Hill, you will be fully informed of their health status and any medical requirements they may have. All of our animals are spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated.

Listed below are our more adoptable animals. Click here to see our Special Needs Animals that also deserve a loving home!

Interested in meeting or adopting a cat? Click here to fill out an application.

Please read: Given the nature of the sanctuary, many of our animals are older, and/or have special medical/behavioral needs. If you are looking to adopt a pet in a short time frame, please consider adopting from one of our local shelters. If we do have the right pet for you, it can take over a week to process your application. Our process takes more time as we do require vet references, and want to be sure we find the right fit for each of our animals. Please also consider that dogs can live up to 15 years, and cats over 20.


Please note:
We conduct meet + greets and adoptions by appointment only. We do not do same-day adoptions.
Take the first step by filling out an adoption application.

Why Adopt a Rescue Cat?

Adopting a rescued cat from our Charleston, SC-area animal sanctuary is an act of kindness and practicality. Not only can you get a wonderful little friend to bring home, you can save money in the process over buying from a breeder AND you are saving the life of a kitty who might otherwise be forgotten and put down. To adopt is to show compassion and love, and Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary wants to help you find your next fur-ever friend.

How Much Does it Cost to Keep a Cat?

Having a cat does not have to be crazy expensive. In your first year, you might have additional immunizations and medical fees, along with things like a litter box, travel bag, and other accessories. You can expect to spend between $1,000-$1,500 in your first year. Then, depending on food choices, around $500 annually after that.

Do Cats Bite to Show Affection?

Cats will gently nibble to show affection, but if they are biting hard it is likely that they are suffering from over stimulation. It might be best to try and remove some of the more exciting elements to see if they calm down.

If you can’t adopt a cat now but would like to help by donating to the daily care of the animals at Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary, please consider making a donation. We depend solely on donations to keep our sanctuary running. Thank you so very much for your generosity.
