Important Note

Claudette is best friends with Cary. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Female * Dark Brown Tabby DMH * Born Spring 2014 *

A beautiful, medium haired brown tabby with striking black accent stripes, Claudette is a natural in front of the camera. Claudette is very sweet but somewhat skittish. She has come a long way from the hissing ball of kitten fur that was afraid of her own shadow, but still needs a little extra TLC. Although she does not like to be held, she likes to be near you and will creep closer and closer hoping you do not notice. She loves to be stroked down her back and will even let you touch her fluffy tail. Claudette, although shy with humans, does well with other cats.

Claudette enjoys windows , her track ball scratcher pad (catnip is a bonus) and canned food. If she wants attention, she lets out tiny meows that sound a lot like Henrietta from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood: short, clipped and distinctive (Note: Claudette does her own vocals—no dubbing or human voice over required).

Claudette needs to be adopted with her brother Cary.

To adopt you must first complete an adoption application and either come to an adoption event or arrange to meet the cat in its foster home. We do not do same day adoptions so, generally, we can only adopt within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

About Montgomery County SPCA

About Our Rescue Group...

The MCSPCA, founded in 1973, is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the humane treatment of animals. We are independent, locally based, and funded completely by donations. We receive no financial support from the ASPCA or from any federal, state, or county government agencies.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We generally hold cat adoption open houses every week at local Petco or PetsMart locations. See our website www.mcspca.org for details on upcoming events. Appointments can also be arranged to visit our adoptable cats at other times.

The MCSPCA facilitates dog adoptions through referrals. We also maintain a list of dog breed rescue organizations for people who are looking for a particular breed of dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:

* A $100 adoption fee is required for cats.
* A $150 adoption fee is required for kittens under 1yr. of age.
* A $150 adoption fee is required for dogs under 50lbs
* A $175 adoption fee is required for dogs over 50lbs
* A $225 adoption fee is required for puppies or dogs with special medical needs (including sighthounds because of the anesthesia requirements)

We accept cash and checks only, no credit cards. The fee includes the cost of spay/neuter, initial vaccinations, heartworm testing (for dogs), FeLV/FIV testing (for cats), deworming, and general care of the animals during their stay at the MCSPCA (food, litter, medication, vet care, etc.).
An adoption application, vet check, and interview with a counselor are required to ensure that appropriate placements are made. A home visit may also be required.

* ALL members of a household must be present for the adoption process.
* If you rent your home, you must provide your landlord’s name and phone number. Landlord consent is required prior to adoption. To expedite this process, you can provide a copy of your lease or a signed statement from your landlord specifying the pet policy.

* The MCSPCA seeks the best possible homes for the animals in our care, and we reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone.

*Upon approval, an adoption contract must be completed and signed.
*An adoption counselor will follow up each adoption with telephone calls and/or home visits.
