Foster Feedback

Scout came into the rescue at 9 days old.  His mother was not taking care of the litter and all of his siblings passed away.  He was cold, dehydrated and starving but we were able to help him survive.  He has not had any siblings to cuddle, wrestle and socialize with so he does think humans are a play toy right now.  We hope that he will get better about that as he matures but for now he would only work with a family who has older children and adults to continue to teach him the difference between toys and humans.  He has played with the resident 1 year old cat so he does do well with other playful cats but she only has patience for his crazy for a little while then she retreats.  :) 

Scout is a very inquisitive, rambunctious, playful, comical little kitten.  He is used to being handled so you can pretty much do anything with him but you can expect him to think you are playing with him so he treats you like a kitten sibling.  He loves to hide in boxes and climb on cat tree’s.  He also loves playing with jingle balls in the bathtub.  He has a sock addiction that we have created.  Sorry in advance.  LOL.  He is living in our bathroom and when we are trying to be in there to get ready we tend to throw socks for him to play with as a distraction so we can finish our bathroom duties. He is a hoot!  He has also discovered that Qtips are super fun.  So that is also a distraction technique we have used.  

When he is out in the rest of the house he is around adult cats and large dogs.  He does fine with all of them. He has grown up with them around him and one of the dogs even mothered him when he was tiny.  He went through a stage where he figured out that he could do the arched back, sideways, scardey cat pose.  It was hilarious because he thought he needed to do it to everything and everyone.  We have a photo of the cuteness included below.  We have also included the photo’s from his 1st day with us and others as he grew older. 

Scout has received a wellness exam and has tested FIV/Feluk negative.  He has started his kitten vaccine boosters and will be finished with them by the time he is neutered.  He will be neutered, microchipped (which includes a lifetime enrollment with AKC Reunite) and ready to be adopted by May 24rd.  Please apply for Scout if you would like to meet him and see if he is the one for you!

Our Adoption Process...

What is the process for adopting an animal?


Before potential adopters can physically meet a foster animal outside of our open adoption events, we require them to register on our site and submit an adoption application. Check out our scheduled adoption events.


After applications are reviewed, suitable applicants are contacted to set up a Pre-Adoption Meeting with our volunteers. This meeting is designed to answer any questions adopters may have about a particular animal or our adoption process. These meetings are dependent on the availability of approved volunteers in your area.

Once the application and Pre-Adoption Meeting are complete, meet and greets with the foster animal can be scheduled with qualified applicants if this has not already occurred.

After the meet and greet (and if the applicant is still interested in the animal), foster parents will make a recommendation to the Adoption Committee regarding the adoption. The foster animal stays with the foster family until they hear from the Diamond In The Ruff adoption committee.

Adoption is approved or rejected by the Diamond In The Ruff Adoption Committee. Final approval of all adoptions is at the sole discretion of Diamond in the Ruff.

Once approved, another meeting will be arranged between the foster parent and adopter wherein the adoption fee is collected and contracts are signed. The foster animal then goes to its new forever home and, after the adopters are given a week-long trial period, the adoption is finalized. Check out some of our amazing success stories!

A Diamond in the Ruff volunteer will contact the adoptive family after 72 hours to see how everyone is settling in as well as answer any questions.

After the week trial period is up, we will deposit the adoption fee and distribute the animals vet records and microchip information in a timely fashion.


Please keep in mind, Diamond In The Ruff is a 100% volunteer run organization and we will process your applications as fast as possible. If you have any questions about your application, contact our Application Coordinator at applications@diamondpetrescue.org.

If you have questions about an animal’s vet records, please contact our Healthcare Coordinator at healthcare@diamondpetrescue.org.
