Thank you for your understanding!

What is the adoption fee?
The adoption fee is:
$95.00 for one cat/kitten — up to 5 months old
$180.00 for two kittens — up to 5 months old
$75.00 for one kitten (older than 5 months) OR an adult cat
$125.00 for one kitten (older than 5 months) AND one adult cat
$125.00 for two 2 adult cats
$50.00 spay/neuter deposit is required for each kitten that has not been sterilized. Note: A check is preferred for the deposit. We will return the uncashed check to you when the kitten has been sterilized.
**Please note that the new adoption fee for kittens up to 5 months old is effective starting SEPT 1st.**

What do the fees include?
The fee includes spay/neuter, rabies shot, FVRCP shots (until pickup), and deworming.

Is a deposit required?
We do not take deposits to HOLD cats/kittens. You must fill out an application, be approved, and pay the adoption fees for the cat/kitten you choose. If a kitten isn’t ready to be released, we call this a “Pending Pick-up Adoption”. NOTE: ADOPTION is not final until the cat/kitten has been picked up. All fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and will be forfeited if the adopter fails to complete the adoption (i.e., pick up the cat/kitten when they are ready to be released).

When would the cat/kitten be available?
Our guideline is that a kitten has to be 2 months old and weigh a minimum of 2 pounds before he/she can be released.
