The Adoption Process:

Every kitten is tested for Feline Leukemia and adult cats are tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV.  All cats are de-wormed, de­fleaed and have received a distemper vaccine.  They are also spayed/neutered and microchipped.

Step One:

Once you’ve made the decision to add a new member to your family, you will be asked to complete an adoption application. All adoptions must be pre­approved. Once approved, applications are good for four months, after which time you will be asked to submit a new application for re­evaluation/approval.

Note: It is highly recommended that you submit an application for approval in advance if you are considering adopting a kitty from us, or if you are planning to visit us at a weekend adoption event.

Step Two:

Your completed adoption application will be evaluated, and you will be notified within 2-3 business days of the status of your application.  Please be sure to fill out the application completely in order to expedite the process.

Our goal is for your new cat to enhance the life of you and everyone in your home and for you to enhance the life of your new cat. We take great care in matching our cats to their potential new families. Together, we can make sure the addition of your new cat is successful.

Step Three:

Once you have been approved, our volunteers will work with you, using the information you have provided about your family and our information about our cats to help match your family with the right kitty or kitties that will be a good fit for your home.  There are times when some of our kitties would benefit from being adopted as a pair or into a home with another cat.  However, some of our cats would not do well going to a home where there are other cats.  Our volunteers are here to help you make the best match both for your family and our kindred kitties.  

Once  you  have  determined which kitty or kitties are the right match for you, arrangements  will  be  made  for  you  to  adopt  your  kitty.  You will be required to sign our Adoption Agreement, which is the binding contract between you and Kindred Kitties.  

Adoption fees are as follows:
● Cats over 1 year old are $60 each, (2 cats for $100).
● Kittens 9 weeks to 1 year who have been spayed/neutered/microchipped – $100 each ○ 2 spay/neutered/microchipped kittens – $160 

Make sure you have everything you need for your new family member before you bring your kitten or cat home.

A volunteer will be able to assist you.  Here is a list of things you will need:

● Cat Carrier to take your new cat home in
● Litter pan, litter and scooper
● Food (dry and/or wet) appropriate for the age of your kitty
● Food and water bowls
● Toys (for socializing)
● Bed or blanket
● A quiet secure room for them to become acclimated with their new home
● Lots of love and affection

Step Four:

A volunteer will usually call you during the first month to see how the adoption is going. If you do not get a call feel free to call one of the numbers on your agreement with questions or to let us know how you are doing.  A home visit may also be a part of this step.

 

We recommend that all members of the household are present to help choose your new furry friend!
