- We charge a $70 fee per animal for adoption. This fee covers just a portion of the costs for testing, vaccines, spaying or neutering.
- We require an application be submitted. Here is the link to application form, or find it under the Adopt menu above.
- When you come visit, we require photo identification and proof of residence, such as a utility bill.
- We require that all pets be spayed or neutered prior to adoption, if their age permits. Females can be spayed at six months, and males can be neutered at seven months. If you adopt a younger pet, you assume responsibility for having them spayed or neutered later. In those instances, we require that you provide a copy of documentation from a veterinarian as proof that the pet has been spayed or neutered.
- All adoptions are contingent on the adopter's agreement to keep the pet indoors at all times. Why? The incidence of feline leukemia, feline HIV/AIDS, and other diseases make an indoor lifestyle mandatory. Injury or death due to traffic and fights with other animals are a very real risk. Finally, unfortunately acts of cruelty towards animals are not uncommon.
- The pets offered for adoption were typically stray or abandoned. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the age, past history or health of the cat. We can only testify with certainty to the behavior, disposition, and health information gained during the time the pet has been under our care.
- Please contact us to arrange an adoption. The shelter is open for adoptions Monday 7:30AM to 1:00PM, Tuesday through Saturday 7:30AM to 11:30 AM. Emailing ahead can help ensure there is someone available to accommodate your tour. Email email@example.com. The address is, Project PAW, 127 Bevier Street, Binghamton, New York 13904.
- We will discuss the adoption policies noted above. We will arrange a time for you to come and see the kittens and cats that best fit your situation.
- Prior to taking custody of your new pet, spaying or neutering are required, assuming it is age appropriate.
- Take your new pet home and enjoy the varied and rich rewards of pet ownership.
Adoptee Preventive Health Care
- We encourage adopters to schedule a veterinarian visit as soon as possible after adoption. This will establish a base of information about your pet, and assure that all vaccinations are up-to-date.
Post Adoption Support
- We are available after the adoption to address any questions regarding your pet's health and behavior. Many concerns or problems can be resolved with a little advice, or with a referral to other resources.
- If for any reason, an adoption is not working out, we urge you to return the pet to us. We understand that sometimes allergies, finances, or problems interacting with children or other pets can make this necessary.
