How to Adopt
Meet Our Adoptable Pets:
Adoptions: All our pets are fostered in private homes. Please contact us to make arrangements to meet them in person. You will be asked to fill out an adoption application form and sign a legally-binding contract. This process can usually be done within a day or two. A printable form can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
***PLEASE NOTE: You may have to sign in to your Gmail or Google account to access the form. If it doesn't work, please contact our manager Kathy to send it to you.
References: We'll also ask you to provide the name of your vet clinic and a non-family reference. You must be 18 or over to apply for adoption.
Adults Cats: $75
Kittens (under 1 year): $100
Two Kittens: Adopt one, get the second for 1/2 price - $150.00
Barn Buddies: A minimum $30 donation is suggested. Barn buddies are classified as adult cats unsuitable for house pets.
Health: All pets in our care get a health examination, deworming, vaccination, spay-neuter, and testing for FIV and FelV.
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 two clinics in Brandon.
Having your pet spayed or neutered is a mandatory condition of adoption if it hasn’t already been done when you take your pet home.
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 minutes, hours or days, depending on the individual cat and other pets in the home.
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.
Our take on 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 cheaper, safer and less painful ways to protect your belongings.
