Adoption Process & Application
We want to be sure that your kitty is a pawsitively purrfect fit for your family. Can't decide on a kitty? Let us know what kind of purrsonality you are looking for -playful, calm, lap kitty, or whomever is most in need. Do you have a purrticular type of cat - color, age, etc.? Let us know and we will do our best to guide you to your new family member!
Adoption Purr-rocess (*Updated 1.2.21 due to Pandemic)
Please click on the document link to the right, fill out the application and email it to us at GoodMews22@aol.com. Once approved (usually 1 - 3 days, depending on how quickly we can reach your references), we will contact you. If we are having difficulty reaching one of your references, we will let you know, so you can possibly provide another reference.
You can meet the kitten/cat at their foster's home. Please be sure to wear a mask and bring a hard-sided carrier. No cats/kittens will be allowed to travel in a soft-sided carrier or cardboard box with handles. Sometimes, we can loan you a carrier, just ask! If you like him/her (what's not to like?!?) You will sign a contract and can take your new family member home.
Please note, there are times we may require a home visit, depending on the situation.
** CHANGES **
Due to the pandemic, we have had to make adjustments to our adoption fees.
COVID-19 has caused a 2-5 month back-up at local spay/neuter clinics, making it difficult for us to spay/neuter our cats > adopt our cats quickly > open up our foster homes > save more cats from outdoors and euthanasia. Because of this, we have made the difficult decision to adopt out younger kittens and possibly some cats without spaying or neutering them, at a discounted rate of $75. We are hoping this is only tem"purr"ary, until things return to "normal."
The $75 adoption fee includes:
-2 FVRCP vaccines
- a rabies vaccine if kitten is 4 mos. or older
- a microchip with a lifetime registration
This is a huge discount as you are saving the vet walk-in fee (ranging from $49-$78 locally) for each vaccination, and the microchip fee (at last check, microchips are $75 at a vet and need to be re-registered every year at $20 or more),
If your cat is fully vetted, the adoption fee is $145.
Your kitten/cat will be :
-spayed/neutered -rabies vaccine (if 4 mos. or older)
-dewormed -*tested negative for FIV, Feline Leukemia,
-receive a distemper vaccine (adult) or and heartworm (*if we are able to test)
2 vaccines (kitten) -microchipped with a lifetime registration,
you won't spend $20 to renew each year!
We do a lot more than most rescues, because we want to set your cat up for successful, healthy life! All you will need to do is love him/her and continue to care for your cat. Because we do not know the care (or absence of care) before the cat came to us, we recommend that your cat is taken to the vet within 10 days of adoption.
If for any reason, you have any questions about your new bff, you can always contact us. We are always here for you. Your adoption assistance doesn't end with the adoption. If you have any questions, call us! That's why we are here. :0) Should you need to return your cat for any reason, your cat MUST be brought back to us, purr your contract.
