Adoption Policy

The Humane Society currently has a shelter with limited space located on County Highway 192 in Fredericksburg, Ohio. Our cat adoption fee is $60. This includes spaying or neutering, de-worming, age appropriate vaccinations, FIV/FeLeuk Testing and flea preventive. Please be aware of the following when applying for one of our cats/kittens. Meet and greets/adoptions are by appointment only for approved applications. When the adoption is finalized, fees must be paid by cash, Paypal or check. Adoptions are not first come first serve. All applications are reviewed with the best interest of our pets at heart. We do not adopt out cats/kittens to anyone who intends for them to be kept outside. We do not adopt out cats/kittens to anyone who intends to have them declawed. Our volunteers appreciate your dedication to providing a home for a rescued pet. Any pets in your household must be current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and dogs must be licensed. You must have a solid history of vetting for any current pets and a positive referral from your veterinarian. Please note, our application process normally takes 2-3 days, sometimes longer depending on volunteer availability and the number of applications received. We are volunteers with full time jobs and families to care for as well as our rescue responsibilities. The purpose of this application is to gather information about your home, other pets and your general lifestyle to make an initial assessment of whether the pet you wish to adopt is suitable for you and is a good fit for the pet too. Additional pet or breed-specific restrictions may be placed on some pets. Submission of this application does not guarantee that you will receive a cat. Incomplete application is reason for refusal. Veterinarian name and phone number are required if you currently have or have had pets. No exceptions. If you wish to adopt from HCHS, please fill out the form at
