PALS Animal Life Savers
PALS Animal Life Savers is a nonprofit, no-kill, all-volunteer feline rescue group committed to promoting high standards of animal care and appropriate placement for our locally rescued cats, as well as providing educational materials to potential adopters and the general public by participating in community events.
The goal of our small but dedicated group is to find appropriate homes for our locally rescued cats and kittens. Our Adoption Counselors spend many hours with the cats and are able to help you find the perfect match. They will help suggest a cat based on factors including your home, family, interests and lifestyle. Each situation, adopter, and cat requires a different approach and while we reserve the right to refuse an adoption, we always make every effort to work with you to address concerns or find the most appropriate feline companion.
As a potential adopter, the first step in the process is to complete an adoption application. Applications are available outside our Adoption Center or online through our website, www.palscats.org. This form will provide us with information about yourself and your household to help facilitate the match-making process, so be specific about the type of cat you are looking for.
Please make sure that you are:
- At least 21-years of age
- In possession of a valid photo ID
- Financially able to take care of a feline companion. This includes both routine and emergency veterinary care, food, and litter
Some things we may need to discuss or verify before you adopt:
RENTERS: Please be sure your landlord will consent to have the cat on his/her property. We verify this information with landlords before sending a new cat home, so please have your landlord’s name and phone number available, or bring in a signed letter of consent.
HOMEOWNERS: Please provide proof of home ownership (i.e. tax bill, mortgage statement, deed). Some towns allow verification of home ownership via an online database. We can try that if you don’t have documentation with you.
OTHER PETS IN YOUR HOME: All of your pets need to be up-to-date on vaccinations. Please bring documentation with you. Alternatively, we may be able to verify this by calling your veterinarian. Note: Many vet offices are closed on weekends and some require client consent before releasing any information.
When your application is complete, you can submit it online or drop it off at our Adoption Center on Saturday or Sunday, or you can slip it under the door of the Adoption Center if no volunteer is available.
Once received, we will review your application, check references, and contact you within 48 hours with any questions.
When your application is approved, we will contact you to arrange an appointment at our Adoption Center
