"is Fluffy available for adoption?"
Please assume that if an animal is listed as 'adoptable' on our Petfinder page we are still accepting applications for that pet. We do our best to keep the page up to date. We are not able to respond to emails asking if animals are available.
"is Fluffy good with dogs/older cats/male cats/children/vacuums?"
Each animal is different, and our profiles try to address these questions. If you do not find your answer in the pet's profile, please submit an application and a volunteer will be happy to speak with you about a particular animal.
"what is the adoption process?"
You submit an application at: | https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/BFOB/Cat
and then the applications for that animal are are reviewed. References are then checked. The chosen adopter will be contacted (usually by phone) and a meet-and-greet and or home visit is arranged to determine if the adoption will be finalized. If the person passes on the pet, we will contact the next applicant in line.
"how much does it cost?"
Kitten adoption fees are $85 if the kitten has been spayed or neutered, $75 if it has not (includes a $50 spay or neuter voucher). Adult cats are $25. Dog adoptions range from $100 to $500 depending. All adoption donations are tax-deductible and donations above these amounts are always appreciated. Every cent received from adoption fees goes toward helping more animals in need.
"what veterinary care has Fluffy received?"
Kittens are wormed and given first shots. The adoption packet includes a voucher for a low-cost spay or neuter if the kitten has not yet been spayed or neutered. Older cats are generally spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs are wormed, vaccinated and spayed or neutered if appropriate age.
Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue pet.
