Our mission is to provide low cost spay and neuter services for Okanogan County, as well as TNR services for community cats in the area. Our Tame2U cats have been in our care due to various complications with their original adoption from our partner AFC, primarily that they were not “tame enough” for the shelter to have on display. These cats are not feral, but some are shy with new people and therefore hard to place with adopters. Our goal is to get our special kitties into understanding families who will give them the patience to thrive.
TAME 2 U ADOPTER QUALIFICATIONS
Our adoption fee is $75.00.
Cats must go in pairs except for the cats whose behavior has led us to believe they would prefer being the only cat.
If there are already cats in the home, they must be receptive to new cats.
It may take 6 hours, 6 days, 6 weeks, 6 months or longer for Tame 2 U cats to adjust to a new environment and show off how wonderful they are. Adopters must understand the relocation process and be willing to commit to a long adjustment period.
Cats must be indoors only unless they have a secure enclosure where they have access to both an indoor and outdoor area.
Adopters will be required to spend time bonding with their cats in the "Tame 2 U Cat Room" at Okanogan Regional Humane prior to taking them home.
Socializing tools and activities will be explained and printed information provided during the bonding period.
Kids will be kids and may unintentionally leave doors open, move quickly, or make unexpected loud noises, so in most cases, homes without children are best for fearful kitties.
Adopters must be able to afford medical care for the cats they adopted.
Stuff happens, so adopters must agree that the cats they adopted will be returned to the "Tame 2 U Program" if they can no longer care for them.
