Adoption Policy

All AVA kittens under 12 months of age MUST be adopted in pairs or to a home with another young cat. AVA does not accept applications for single kittens.

AVA does not adopt out of province or out of country. Adopters should live within a one-hour radius of our locations in the Greater Toronto Horseshoe Area (GTHA).

Due to the overwhelming volume of applications we are receiving, a response to short-listed applicants may be delayed. While we endeavour to contact short-listed applicants within 48 hours, a response may take up to a week.

Adoption Fees

Standard adoption fees for cats and kittens include vetting, spay/neuter, two dewormings, microchip, and initial vaccine at the time of adoption (FVRCP and rabies if age-appropriate). Additional fees may apply for cats who have had or are due for vaccine boosters prior to adoption.

As of October 1, 2022, AVA’s adoption fee schedule will be as follows:

Adult over 1 year: $200 (with initial vaccine)

Adult over 1 year: $250 (with second/booster vaccine)

Kitten or juvenile under 1 year: $225 (with initial vaccine)

Kitten or juvenile under 1 year: $275 (with booster vaccine)

Special breeds: Starting at $225 – a $50 fee may be applied for special breeds who have had a booster administered prior to adoption.

Total fees will be confirmed by the AVA Adoption Coordinator.
