Orphan Kitten Project's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

If you are interested in adopting, please visit our PetFinder: https://www.petfinder.com/member/us/ca/davis/orphan-kitten-project-ca449/

2. Approve Application

Our adoption coordinator will review your application and if approved, your information will be passed onto the foster!

3. Meet the Pet

After agreeing on a time/location, you can get a chance to meet your kitten!

4. Sign Adoption Contract

If you and the foster feel it's a good fit, you can fill out the adoption agreement and pay the adoption fee.

Adoption fee is $100 per kitten and includes spay/neuter surgery, deworming, FeLV testing, FVRCP and FeLV vaccines and microchip with registration. Our kittens become adoptable starting at 12 weeks to make sure kittens get all of their required treatments.

Adoption fee is $60 for an adult cat and includes spay/neuter surgery, deworming, FeLV (and FIV) testing, vaccines (FVRCP and rabies), and microchip with registration.

The adoption fee actually does not fully cover the cost of raising kittens which also includes formula, food, medications, bottles, carriers, and other supplies. We rely on other Feline Medicine Club fundraisers to help defray these additional costs.

About Orphan Kitten Project

The Orphan Kitten Project is a vet-student run, non-profit organization at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Orphaned and abandoned neonatal kittens under 8 weeks of age are taken in from the community and given a complete physical exam by the project coordinators. These kittens are then fostered by members of the community who bottle raise them in their own homes. The kittens are weaned, FeLV tested, spayed or neutered, provided any necessary medical treatment and given their FVRCP and FeLV vaccines before being put up for adoption.

The purpose of this Project is twofold: 1) We aim to rescue these animals (since many would not survive without our care), get them spayed or neutered, and placed into caring homes. 2) The Project is an excellent way to train future veterinarians in kitten neonatal husbandry techniques.

None of our foster kittens are involved in non-invasive medical research and no healthy kittens are euthanized because a permanent home cannot be found. All kittens remain in the program until they are adopted out.
