Listed below are the requirements for adopting a cat or kitten from our hospital. Please review these points before you contact us. This is the basic information in our adoption contract that you will have to agree to and sign in order to take home one of our babies:
-Give the animal proper and humane care, food, water, shelter, exercise, and all other necessities.
-The cat will remain strictly indoors.
-Provide veterinary care on a yearly basis for booster vaccines and as needed for medical problems. Yearly wellness checks are considered to be minimal medical care. All pets at home MUST be current in order to adopt one of our cats. If any of your pets are overdue, we can still continue the adoption process. But only if they are updated on their vaccines. Cats that are strictly indoors are still exposed to lethal viruses and zoonotic diseases.
-The cat will be adopted for family pet purposes only, and the animal will not be resold, abandoned, abused, neglected, or used for
The adoption fee for our cats is $75-100 (kittens $175). It is also non-refundable. If a cat/kitten is not already de-clawed, you may request to not have that procedure done. If you want a cat/kitten to be de-clawed on all four feet, we will do the additional rear feet for an extra fee of $150. We do laser de-claws only at our facility and prefer they are done here.
If for any reason one of our cats does not work out at your home, we insist that you bring them back to our hospital and not re-home them yourself. For this reason we ask that you live in the tri-state area of Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana only. We also need the phone number of your regular veterinarian for a quick reference check. We require all our cats who are adopted to remain indoor only pets!!!
We adopt out to anyone who meets our requirements. The safety and well-being of children and pets is of the utmost importance here at Hartman. Small children and kittens have been seriously injured when placed together.
