The Adoption Process

We have done our best to make adopting through Purrfect Cat Rescue a simple and rewarding experience. All cats & kittens in our program have been spayed/neutered, given two 3-in-1 (FVRCP) vaccinations, treated for fleas and worms, and fostered in caring homes so they are ready to move into yours.

Available cats and kittens can be seen weekly at our adoption clinics (see Where to Find Us). You will need to fill out an adoption application, either in person or online, and, upon approval, agree to the terms of the Purrfect Cat adoption contract.

Terms

The terms are fairly simple, we require the following assurances:
  • That the entire family is in agreement about bringing a pet into their home, and that it will be an indoor only (unless otherwise discussed with us) family pet.
  • That the adoptive family will not surgically declaw their new cat. While fairly common thirty years ago, there is a great deal of new evidence that declawing can be both physically and emotionally harmful to cats over time.
  • That the adoptive family is allowed to have pets where they currently live. If you are a renter, a letter from your landlord or apartment manager simplifies the process, but is not required as we can contact them ourselves if necessary.
  • That potential adopters have not misrepresented themselves, their family, current and/or previous pets, or dwelling in an effort to facilitate the adoption process. We reserve the right to take a cat back into our care should we find this to be the case.
