To reclaim your animal that came into our shelter as a stray, the fees stated below will be due at the time of pick up. We accept cash only. Once your animal comes into Kindred Kitties, you will have 4 days to reclaim your animal. After 4 days, the animal will legally become property of Kindred Kitties.
Reclaim Fees*: $39.00. A $10.00 per day boarding fee is charged after the first day. Reclaim Fees must be paid by cash. The $39 fee doubles the second time an animals comes in ($78) and triples the third time ($117) and so on. If the animal has been vetted while in our care, the cost for the vetting will replace the $39 fee.
Microchipping your pet greatly increases the likelihood of their returning to you if they are lost. All pets released back to their owners will be microchipped. A microchip fee of $15 will also be assessed which includes lifetime registration.
*AN UP-TO-DATE RABIES VACCINATION WITH PROOF IS REQUIRED BY LAW BEFORE AN ANIMAL IS RELEASED BACK TO THE OWNER. If you do not have proof you must prepay for the rabies vaccine.
Please provide one or more of the following to serve as proof of ownership:
-Your pet’s registration papers (this alone may not be sufficient, so if you have any of the following as well, please bring that too!)
