How to Adopt

How to Meet Our Adoptable Pets: Since we don’t have a shelter, all our pets are fostered in private homes. Please contact us at 204 851-3135 and let us know which pet you're interested in. We'll make arrangements for you to meet the pet.

Age of Adopter: You must be 18 and over to apply for adoption.

References: Potential adopters will be asked to provide the name of their vet clinic and / or a reference. We may contact them before the adoption is approved. We do NOT require home inspections. 

Adoption Application and Contract: All adopters are required to fill out an adoption application (downloadable below) and sign a legally-binding contract. Our adoption contract reads:

Indoor Cat/Kitten Adoption Contract 

1.     I will keep my cat indoors at all times except for brief periods outdoors under my supervision. 


2.     I will give my cat proper housing, food, water, exercise and humane treatment. 


3.     I will provide my cat with veterinary treatment when necessary. If not already done, I will have him or her spayed/neutered when old enough. This is included in the adoption fee. 


4.   If the adoption doesn't work out, I will NOT sell, give away, neglect, abandon or euthanize my pet.

 I must return the pet to Virden Pet Network if I can't keep it.

 I accept the cat "as is" and understand that adopted pets may have pre-existing health conditions.

Adoption Fees:

=>Adults Cats: $50

=>2 Adult Cats: $75

=>Kittens (under 1 year): $75

=>2 Kittens: $112.00

=>Dogs & Puppies: $200
=>Barn Buddies: A minimum $30 donation is suggested

Our low adoption fees help offset some of our costs, such as vaccinations and spay/neuter. If a pet is adopted before it has been spayed/neutered, adopters will receive a certificate that entitles them to have the procedure done at no cost. The certificate is valid at the Virden Animal Hospital and 2 clinics in Brandon. Adoptions fees are subject to change without notice.

Spay/Neuter: In order to help prevent unwanted litters, having your pet spayed or neutered is a mandatory condition of adoption if it hasn’t already been done. We will follow up with adopters to ensure compliance.

Settling In: After you pick up your new pet, we encourage you to maintain contact with us or your veterinarian in case you have questions about integrating the pet into your home with minimal stress. The settling-in process can take a few hours or several weeks, depending on the circumstances.

We ask you to be patient with your new family member, give them at least one week to settle in, and don’t hesitate to call and ask us for assistance.

Declawing: Declawing is a drastic measure that is rarely necessary. Before you declaw your adopted cat, please talk to us or to your vet to discuss alternatives. There are many better, cheaper, safer and less painful ways to protect your belongings.
