For individuals the
total charge to surrender a cat is $5000. As a courtesy and only if you live in California, we will accept monthly payments toward this total, provided that you have first paid a non-refundable deposit of $500 (for cats under 8 years old) and $1000 for senior cats (8 years and older).
The minimum monthly payment for non-senior cats is $60 per month until the entire balance is paid (up to 83 months) and $75
per month for senior cats (up to 67 months).
If the cat is unvaccinated or unaltered, there is an $80 fee in addition to the deposit.
Note: The full surrender fee is due and payable to The Cat House on the Kings even if the cat dies before full payment has been made. If the cat is adopted
before all payments have been made, The Cat House on the Kings will consider the remaining debt to be paid in full and no further payments will be required.
Payment in full discount: If you pay the entire surrender fee at the time the cat is surrendered,
the surrender fee will be discounted 10%. e.g. For a non-senior cat the discounted fee would then be $4500.
The surrender fee is NOT tax-deductible because we are providing the service of lifetime care for the surrendered cat in exchange for the fee.
