How do I adopt a cat?
The first step is to meet our cats and kittens who are ready for adoption. Once you have picked your purr-fect friend, you can fill out our Adoption Application online or print it out at home. You will also need to pay the Adoption Fee, which helps us continue to rescue and care for more cats and kittens in need. You can pay that online or with a check when you pick up your cat. The volunteers at Kitten Korner Rescue, Inc. will personally schedule a pick up time. In the event you find a cat or kitten at one of our adoption events, in most cases you can bring your cat home that very same day!
Are there any adoption requirements?
First and foremost, please make sure you are allowed to have cats where you live. If you do rent, we are required to contact your landlord for approval prior to releasing a cat or kitten into your care. We prefer our cat and kittens to be indoor animals. If you plan to let your cat outside, please discuss this with us before adopting your cat. Overall, you agree to care for your cat in a humane and responsible manner and to provide it with clean and adequate shelter, food, water, and veterinary care.
How to avoid picking the wrong cat?
It’s easy to get lost in the loving eyes of a cat or kitten, but before you make an impulsive decision, please consider whether it is the right cat for you. Not all cats can live in all environments. Ask your volunteers three very important questions, if it pertains to your household…Does this cat like other cats? Does this cat like dogs? Does this cat like children? Once you have the answers you need, go for it!
Are cats for adoption healthy?
All of our cats have been tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia and will only be adopted out if the tests came out negative. If our cats are old enough, they have also been vaccinated. As in any animal in the world, we can not guarantee a 100% healthy cat. What we can guarantee though is that our cats are 100% healthier than when we found them and ready live a life full of love and happiness.
What is included
In adoption fee for cats
The adoption fee helps to cover the expense of raising and caring for the cat and is not refundable after a period of 14 days. The cat will be tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia and will have had deworming medication. If old enough at the time of adoption, the cats will already have gotten the distemper and rabies vaccine.
Also included in this fee is a spay and neuter deposit of $50, which can be refunded to you after your cat or kitten is fixed and proof is provided. All or part of this deposit can also be donated to Kitten Korner Rescue, Inc. to help in rescuing more cats and kittens in need.
