2. Potential adopter completes the ACG Adoption Application in person or over the phone with an Adoption Counselor.
3. Adoption Counselor will meet prospective adopter at Petsmart (or other arranged location) with foster cat.
4. If the adoption is a good match, the adopter completes ACG Adoption Contract and Petsmart Contract. Adoption fees typically range from $50-$85 (cash only), depending on the age and gender of the cat. All cats are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations (rabies and 3-in-1) and tested negative for Feline AIDS (FIV) and Feline Leukemia (FeLV). Our adoption fees help to cover a portion of our foster cats' veterinary expenses and allow ACG to continue this life saving program.
5. Adoptive family is provided a copy of the ACG Adoption Contract, Adoption Process Overview, Petsmart Contract and all veterinary records.
6. Don't forget to bring a cat carrier with you to take your new feline friend home! If you don't have one, plastic or cardboard carriers can be purchased at Petsmart.
7. Your Adoption Counselor will follow up with you in about a week to make sure things are going smoothly and help with any issues that you may have. Our Adoption Counselors are very experienced cat caregivers and they have lots of good advice to share!
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
