Meet Addy! This little cutie is about 7 years old. She was rescued from a feral colony in Buffalo, NY with her sister Taco and 4 other siblings (Sammy, Starlight and Autumn) who have already been adopted. Addy has been a Tabby Town resident for about 6 1/2 years. She is timid but once she feels comfortable she is a very sweet girl. Her sweet personality has won over the hearts of many Tabby Town crew members. She loves to be petted and rubbed, she will roll around for petting. She does not like to be held. She is talkative and demands attention. Addy is very sweet but she will also let you know when she does not like something. She also becomes defensive when she is scared. Addy gets along well with other cats but due to her timid nature she would do best with a experienced cat parent in a quiet home with no small children or dogs. Addy will need to go through a period of adjustment in a new home in order to feel comfortable.
Addy's adoption is by interview only. If you are interested in adopting Addy please stop by or call the shelter at (716) 822-4910 and speak with Kaylee or Missy who will be handling her adoption.
Adoption Procedure Policy
All our cats and kittens at Tabby Town (TT) are rescued with the goal of adoption. Our organization partners with six local animal welfare groups; each group follows a specific protocol for adoption and TT implements adoptions according to each individual process as required by that organization. There are great similarities among the groups; the most significant difference is that some groups restrict de-clawing. We collaborate with all our animal welfare partners with the understanding that we will follow their specific protocol while working toward a universal adoption process. To that end, our highly trained team of volunteers follows strict guidelines while taking into account each individual situation from both human and animal perspectives.
Here is the process:
-Visitors come to TT to meet cats with possibility of adopting
-If a cat is selected, family goes in a private "meet and greet"to spend time with cat/kitten
-If there is a positive result on both sides, TT's vetting process begins, which includes a thorough questionnaire about animal ownership history and veterinary relationships, attitudes towards animals, as well as financial viability, along with a comprehensive verbal interview. If the prospective adopter rents as opposed to owning his home, written permission from the landlord is required to finalize adoption
-All animal records are reviewed with prospective adopters to provide full disclosure about the animal including history and specific details about the animal's personality, medical conditions, nutritional needs, etc.
-Prospective adopters complete an adoption agreement form which is a legal contract, and pay an adoption donation which ranges from $45.00 to $125.00 depending on cat's age, medical concerns, special needs, etc.
-The animal can leave with the new family that day if everything goes well, the family is prepared for the animal at his/her new home, and assuming there are no concerns or issues that may warrant further investigation. Copies of all paperwork are given to the new family, along with any relevant supplies, etc.
-Each adoptive family receives a certificate for a free first veterinary visit (along a comprehensive list of local veterinary clinics,) to be redeemed within ten days
-TT's team snaps a "new forever family" portrait and frequently posts our new adoption stories on social media to be celebrated and enjoyed
-TT's team of volunteers performs direct follow-up over the course of the following weeks to make sure everyone is adjusting properly and to answer any questions
-TT has a 100 percent return policy for any reason, with the protection and care of our animals as first priority at all times
-TT is always available during the life of the animal, to provide support and answer questions, and to give medical referrals, behavioral advice and to keep track of how each adopted animal is progressing and adjusting
-TT receives literally hundreds of emails, photos, visits, and posts with wonderful stories about our cats and kittens who have found forever homes
-Most cats may be put "on hold" pending adoption (if available,) for up to 24 hours. A deposit toward the adoption fee is encouraged for this request. Under special circumstances a kitten may be put on hold subject to our manager's discretion
