Adoption Application

 

This is the first step to adopting a cat from Angelico Cat Rescue. Please answer all the questions honestly and completely; there are no wrong answers, we would just like to make sure our animals and their adopters are good fits for one another.

Angelico Cat Rescue asks that their adopters are 21+ years older, have identification showing present address, bring a carrier when the time to pick up your cat arrives, and be willing and able to provide appropriate emotional and medical care of the cat they adopt.

THE FINE PRINT
Do you agree to donate the appropriate adoption fee for this pet? *
The fee for adoption is indicated on the cat's adoption listing. While this donation does not cover the full medical expenses paid by the rescue, this is the amount agreed as a fair donation.
Do you understand that you are applying to adopt a cat whose medical history is unknown before it entered the rescue. Cats are tested for FIV and FeLV before placement, but beyond that we cannot anticipate future medical problems which may arise. You agree that, as the cat's legal owner, all future veterinary costs are your sole responsibility from the date of adoption. *
Do you agree to seek prompt and quality veterinary for this cat as soon as the need arises? *
The average expense for a cat is $600‐1000 in food, litter, and veterinary costs pear year. Do you agree to make such a financial commitment to this cat? *
Over‐the‐counter flea and tick preventatives (Hartz, Adams, etc.) can be extremely dangerous to cats and dogs. Reactions can cause problems such as skin inflammation, seizures, and death. Do you agree to only use veterinarian‐approved products such as Revolution, Frontline, Advantage, Capstar, and Program? *
The average lifespan is 15‐20 years. Do you agree that you are comfortable making a commitment to this cat to be its guardian and caretaker for the rest of its life? *
(e.g. Adopt‐a‐Pet, Craigslist, Facebook, etc)
