With the challenges posed by COVID-19 and limited volunteer availability, we’ve had to make some changes and essentially suspend our adoption program.
As always, our available cats are listed on the website. At present there are only two in foster care.
We require an approved adoption application before any potential adopter can meet the cats.
This is to limit to only serious adopters, thereby limiting the number of people our volunteers come into contact with.
Please download our Adoption Application Form here and print it to fill out. Applications must be sent back digitally, either scanned or with clear photos taken of the filled out adoption application form. They can be sent to email address on the form.
Our usual policies apply: the adoption application must be complete, all sections filled in to the best of your ability, including the vet reference check. We are still calling references and doing a thorough review of every application.
The process tends to be faster than when applications are dropped off in store so our board of directors can review everything online right away, provided we’re able to get a hold of your references. You should hear back within a week.
If approved, we’ll make arrangements regarding meeting that cat you’re interested in.
There is no obligation to adopt even though you’re approved. If you decide none of the cats are the right fit for you at this time, you can decline to adopt.
Generally all our animals go home with paperwork and copies of their certificates depending on what our veterinary partners have sent us.
We do ask that if you fall into any of the following categories, you do not visit the store cats:
- have returned from a trip within fourteen days and are not yet through your mandatory quarantine period
- are not practicing social distancing
- are showing any signs of illness
- someone you live with is showing any signs of illness
Please wear a mask if we make arrangements for you to visit with one of the available cats. It is not fair to put our volunteers at risk. Please do not put them in harm’s way by not following current COVID-19 protocols.
While you’re in our store, we ask that you use hand sanitizer and remain a distance from the volunteer who meets you. We have a sink and soap, so you may wash your hands as needed. We have strict sanitizing protocols already for the safety of our cats and do keep the store clean.
