Adopting A Friend

All animals are tested for feline leukemia, vaccinated for distemper, feline leukemia and rabies (kept current for each cat, depending on age). Each feline is spayed/neutered and dewormed for roundworms and microchipped (Home Again) before he or she is adopted into a new home. Illness and injuries are treated. Once taken in, they are loved and cared for until permanent homes can be found. All felines are kept in our homes, in foster care, until adoption.

To give one of our felines a home, we request the following donations based on the cat's age:

Age Donation
Kittens up to 8 months $75.00
From 8 months to 5 years $50.00
Over 5 years $35.00

You may fill out an on-line adoption application here, or you can find printed forms at:

More About Us

Elizabeth Lake Animal Rescue is a small, private, non-euthanasia rescue (exceptions listed below) in the Waterford/Union Lake, Michigan, area. The organization was founded in May 1994, but some of our rescuers have been making similar efforts for more than 30 years. We are run strictly by volunteers and donations, which are tax-deductible, and receipts are issued upon request.


  1. Animal tests positive for Feline Leukemia, Feline Infectious Peritonitis, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.
  2. The animal is diagnosed with any other life-threatening, contagious disease.
  3. The animal is severely injured and deemed "beyond repair" by our veterinarian.

We concentrate on the rescue and rehabilitation of stray and feral cats and kittens as well as providing assistance (when space is available) in the placing of cats deemed unwanted and/or disposable by their previous owner(s).

Additionally, we pride ourselves on being one of the few rescues that takes the time to bottle-feed and raise orphan kittens whenever possible. We also take in seriously injured cats for medical treatment, rehabilitation and placement into homes.
