How to Adopt


Whether you plan to adopt a cat, kitten, dog, or puppy, it is essential to keep in mind that you are making a 10 to 20 year commitment to that animal.

Since most of the animals available for adoption have already had one or more homes, it is essential that the animals be placed in a new, loving, and permanent home. 

We do have a age requirement of 21 to adopt.  Special circumstance's may be taken into consideration.

Adoption Contract  

  • Adoptions can be completed after you have completed an adoption application or at adoption site.  
  • Completed applications are then reviewed by our organization. Please allow five days for application review, which may include verification of the information provided.  An adoption may be completed during scheduled adoption hours. We do not hold animals as we have learned that sometimes people change their mind and we lose valuable time in placing the animal/animals.
  • If adoption application is accepted it is mandatory to read online contract and it assumed that contract is accepted by adopter.
  • A copy of the contract may be printed out for adopters records.  Adoption of a animal means acceptance of the contracts terms. Contract form may be viewed HERE

Adoption Fees

Individual adult or juvenile cats (6 months and older) are available for $100 (unless marked otherwise) ; kittens under 6 months are $125 (unless marked otherwise).   There may be higher rates set for certain animals depending on the breed.

Adoption fees reimburse our not-for-profit organization for the extensive veterinary care the animals receive prior to adoption.  Included in the adoption fee are:

  • Vaccination against Panleukopenia (Distemper), Rhinotracheitis, and Calicivirus [cats] 
  • Vaccination against Rabies (if animal is over 4 months of age)
  • Testing for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) [cats] 
  • Initial de-worming, flea, and ear mite treatment
  • Sterilization of the animal prior to adoption; no exceptions
  • Micro-chipping as mandated by state law
  • There are various area vets that offer a free wellness check to adopted rescue animals. Please mention when you are checking out vets for your first appointment.  

Kittens require a series of inoculations, so adopters will most likely be responsible for the cost of additional vaccinations. Moreover, cats often need follow-up parasitic treatment to ensure 100% removal. These animals are rescue cats/kittens. They may have a UTI or URI that has been treated by us but may reoccur. They may have have ringworm, ear mites or other ailments. All that we are aware of we do fully disclose. However, not all are noticeable on placement. Catsnap is not responsible for these situations. We do not adopt to applicants that are going to de-claw.  In our viewpoint as a group we believe it to be inhumane.


Adoptions That Don't Work Out

Please understand that you are not purchasing an animal from us; you are adopting a lifelong companion. If you are not sure that your new companion will "work out" for any reason, please do not adopt from us until you are certain. The adoption fee covers our costs associated with the adoption, including sterilization, vaccinations, and boarding. We are unable to return your adoption fee in the event that you change your mind about an animal.  In certain circumstances, we are willing to apply the paid adoption fee toward another animal at our discretion. We will always take the animal back that was adopted from us.
