Owl House Cat Foster

Spencer, NY

Adoption Policy

The Owl House is a neighbors-helping-neighbors program in rural Spencer NY, assisting low-income and senior residents as they spay/neuter their outdoor cats. we are a foster home of The American Cat Project, a 501c3 organization.

Many (but not all!) of our cats and kitten are shy with strangers and therefore were not accepted by shelters. Cats and kittens are adopted into indoor-only homes to reduce the burden on local shelters. We often deliver our cats so adopters must be within at least two hours of Spencer.

There is no adoption fee if the new adopter purchases (for their own use with their new cat) a piece of large sturdy cat furniture with a scratching feature suitable for a large cat (4' feet high or higher, 2x4 construction such as one finds fully assembled at Petsmart/Petco). This is verified when we deliver the cat.

Our cats are:

Neutered and vaccinated for FVRCP and rabies. If a kitten is not yet sterilized, he or she must return for free spay/neuter with the private veterinarian we use in Ithaca.
Tested for FeLV/FIV
Adopters visit, choose a cat, and we deliver the cat after a pre-adoption veterinarian's visit, if the cat has not been to the vet within the last few months. Wee guarantee healthy cats, or full-disclosure special-needs cats.
