Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the lives of community cats through TNR, foster care, socialization, and adoption

Adoption Policy

Our application approval process is based on providing the best fit for you and your prospective cat or kitten. If the cat or kitten you have chosen is not the best fit, we will do our very best to help you find the right pet for you and your family. When applying for adoption, please answer all questions thoroughly and note that we will verify the information provided on the application. If you do not own your home, please send a full copy of your lease, including the pet policy, to info@downdogpets.com. Our adoption application is in no way binding and does not represent an agreement to adopt or to provide adoption. Must be 21+ to apply.

Once your application is approved, meet & greets can be arranged at our foster locations in Cambridge MD and Glen Burnie MD. If you have other pets, we may conduct an in-home meet & greet to ensure all pets are compatible.

Our adoption fee is $150, payable on adoption day. We accept cash, check, Squarecash, and Venmo. We are not yet a 501(c)(3) non-profit and contributions are not tax deductible. However, we are a small operation and greatly appreciate any additional donations.

Cats/kittens will have the following medical care prior to adoption:
- Rabies vaccine (kittens 12 weeks or older)
- First distemper vaccine (depending on age at adoption, may also have subsequent two boosters)
- FeLV/FIV testing
- Deworming and flea/tick prevention
- Spay/neuter
- Microchip

If for any reason, at any time, you find you can no longer care for your adopted cat or kitten, please contact us so that the cat or kitten can be returned to us and rehomed.
