I'd suggest checking out your local animal control/pound for what they have and fees. These are government run shelters. Animals are typically held for 10 days to 2 weeks and put down at the end of the time if not adopted. You are literally saving a life adopting from there. In the county where I live the animals have all their shots, are neutered and have been tested for some diseases. That means FeLuk and FIP for cats. I'm not sure what the fees are for cats, but I got my dog for $20 because they had a special that day. They are out to find homes for the animals, not make money.

Another option is the ASPCA. They do shots, testing and neutering too, but the adoption fees are higher. around $75-100 in my area.

You could check for a feline rescue group in your area. I have no idea what their fees are like.

Then there's Petfinders at https://www.petfinder.com
