Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
If for any reason one of our cats does not work out at your home, we insist that you bring them back to our hospital and not re-home them yourself. We also need the phone number of your regular veterinarian for a quick reference check. We require all our cats who are adopted to remain indoor only pets!!!
We adopt out to anyone who meets our requirements. The safety and well-being of children and pets is of the utmost importance here at Hartman. Small children and kittens have been seriously injured when placed together. Therefore, under no circumstances can we adopt kittens to families that have children under 6 years old.
Please remember...Don't give a pet to a child to teach them to be responsible, give a pet to a responsible child.
Listed below are the requirements for adopting a cat or kitten from our hospital. Please review these points before you contact us. This is the basic information in our adoption contract that you will have to agree to and sign in order to take home one of our babies:
-Give the animal proper and humane care, food, water, shelter, exercise, and all other necessities.
-The cat will remain strictly indoors.
-Provide veterinary care on a yearly basis for booster vaccines and as needed for medical problems. Yearly wellness checks are considered to be minimal medical care. All pets at home MUST be current in order to adopt one of our cats. If any of your pets are overdue, we can still continue the adoption process. But only if they are updated on their vaccines. Cats that are strictly indoors are still exposed to lethal viruses and zoonotic diseases.
-The cat will be adopted for family pet purposes only, and the animal will not be resold, abandoned, abused, neglected, or used for medical research or dog fighting.
-If you surrender a cat to this hospital, and want them back again, you must pay more than the normal adoption fee. You will be responsible for any fees incurred for services rendered while your cat was being treated here for routine and specialized care.
Please remember to bring a cat carrier if you might take one of our babies home.
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.
