Requirements for Adoption...
Before falling in love with one of our cats, please make sure that you are:
* At least 21 years of age and have a valid photo ID.
* Allowed to have a cat where you live. Check with
* Able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide the medical treatment and proper care for the cat .
* Able to provide an indoor home. (If you want an outdoor cat, let us know.)
* Okay with not declawing the cat. (If you require a declawed cat , allow us to find you one that has already been declawed. It is a cruel and painful surgery.)
Choosing the Right Cat...
All of our pets are surgically altered before they go home. No animal adopted from our organization will contribute to the pet overpopulation problem.
We discourage the adoption of kittens to families with children under 6 years of age. Why? Because infant animals are very fragile and can be injured, even with the best intentions.
Remember that cats are only kittens for a few months, so the age of the cat you adopt should really depend on the level of maturity you're looking for.
Animals may not be adopted as gifts The animal must be chosen and adopted by the person/family who will be responsible for the pet.
Want a “mouser” or “barn cat”? We have a special program that can help match you with a feral or outdoor cat in need of a home.
Choosing the Right Cat...
Cats make wonderful pets. They tend to be less demanding than other pets and can easily adjust to a variety of lifestyles and living spaces.
A cat's personality, age, and appearance, as well as the kinds of pets you already have at home, are all things you should keep in mind when making your selection.
Also remember that because they are in an unfamiliar
environment, some cats who are usually quite social may be frightened or passive while at the adoption center. These are the cats that may need extra TLC to come out of their shell, but if you give them that, they will make loving, rewarding pets.
Adopt a Cat for Life...
Finally, remember that you're making a commitment to love and care for your new pet for his or her lifetime—and that could mean 10, 15, even 20 years. So choose your new best friend carefully and be a responsible pet owner. In no time at all, you'll know how wonderful sharing your home with a cat can be.
