We're Looking For Our New Home

The cat adoption process typically takes a few days and we do require that adopters be at least 21 years old.  After you have found a cat that you may be interested in adopting, the first step is to complete an adoption application.  This application asks questions about you such as:

  • have you had pets before

  • do you live in an apartment, home, dorm

  • do you rent or own

  • are there children in the home

  • do you have other pets

The completed application is reviewed by the foster volunteer to determine if this cat would be a good fit for the home.  The foster volunteer will contact the potential adopter to clarify any questions on the application or to have a follow up conversation.

If the application is accepted for this particular cat, the foster will meet with the adopter to finalize the adoption by completing the Adoption Agreement.  Once the cat goes to their new home, we will follow up with the adopter to make sure everything is going well. 

If the cat (and adopter and possible other resident pets) is not adapting to their new home, we will accept the cat back into our adoption program if we have a foster volunteer available to take the returned cat.  If this is the case and you need to return the cat, we ask that you contact Cause for Paws first and do not bring the cat to an animal control or humane society prior to contacting Cause for Paws (as is stated in the Adoption Agreement that you are signing). 

 

Before adoption, we make sure all of our adoptable cats receive the following medical care prior to adoption:

  • Veterinary examination

  • Felv/FIV testing

  • Distemper and rabies vaccinations

  • Spay/Neuter

  • Microchip 

  • Deworming (and treated for other parasites as needed)

  • Flea/tick preventative

Some cats have needed more extensive medical care such as dentals, blood work,

x-rays, amputation, etc.  

The cat adoption fee for a Cause for Paws cat is $175.00.  

Adoption fees can be paid the following ways:    ​​

  • Cash

  • Check​ (made out to Cause for Paws)

  • Sorry, we do not accept Credit Cards
