Adopting From Us
We are committed to placing animals in homes compatible with your and the animal's needs.
Please complete our Adoption Application form so we may begin the adoption process.
In most cases, the foster parent of the animal you are interested in will
be at the fair to review your application with you, and to ask questions
helpful in finding the right pet for you. Thereafter, the Adoption Committee
reviews all applications to determine the best home for each animal.
After the adoption fair, you may want to visit the animal in his/her
Within 24 – 48 hours, if a successful match has been made, you may take the animal home. The adoption is finalized with the signed Adoption Contract and payment of the adoption fee. You will receive an information packet which should answer many of your questions about animal care. However, we encourage you to contact your representative from The Cat House on the Kings at any time with any concerns you may have.
About a week later, a volunteer will contact you to make sure that you and the animal are getting along well.
We adopt on a first-come, first-served basis. To hold a specific animal you must make a deposit of the adoption fee. The deposit is refundable if you ultimately decide not to adopt the animal.
We screen prospective adopters before they come to our facility.
We ask that people who rent show proof that animals are allowed.
We require animals to be kept inside as much as possible and not left out at night.
We discourage declawing (and can advise on alternatives).
We do not adopt small kittens to families with young children.
($60 for 2) $50/teen (6-12 mo.) ($75 for 2) $50/kitten ($75 for 2)
All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for FeLV/FIV, treated for fleas and ear mites, microchipped and litter-box trained prior to adoption.
All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for fleas prior to adoption.
Adoption fees help to offset rescue and medical expenses but rarely exceed them. Additional donations are always welcome.
